ExecutePrintDef in 7.8 showing a parameter pop-up if parameter input order is defined in layout



  • Lothar Hasenkämper

    Hi Andrew,

    have you tried to use it with fix parameters?

    In my opinion the fields must stand in "" like

    "ItemCode", "1234", "SubCatNum", "987"

    regards Lothar

    No luck with that, you're right that the param names were originally surrounded by quotes and I must've dropped those out while doing some trial and error, but I put the quotes back in around the parameter names and I have the same issue (input string error message, or the parameter box pops up when I have an input order defined in the layout).

    I'm wondering what a creative workaround to the issue might be, possibly storing the parameters in a UDT and just pulling in from there as long as multiple users aren't running the layout at a time, but we're conserving hours on the project and trying to just get migrated at this point.

    Definitely if I don't have the parameters ordered in the layout, I can't launch it at all with ExecutePrintDef, and I've verified the order of parameters matches what's in Crystal, so it's a bit of a head-scratcher.
