  • Just one word: WHY ?

    Why, for heavens sake, would you create a report with 10.000 pages? Will you (or your customer) really print and then READ that stuff? If not: where's the point?

    If you really need to, then yes you can. SET REPORTBEHAVIOR 80 and off you go...

  • For PDF export he should use the old Reportengine anyway, since the new one has that EMF comaptibiliy issue.... ;)

    Thanks

    I found a way. You should increase GDI ProcessHandle Quota value

  • Hi Upendralk,

    >>  You should increase GDI ProcessHandle Quota value <<

    Ok, that's a good tip, but why don't you reveal the readers how you did it? Forums are for helping each other, not for posting riddles ;)

    On a sidenote: you haven't answered my initial question: "What do you do with 5000 pages of paper?"
