Portals - horizontal vs Vertical

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if portals can be made to work in a horizontal manner rather than a vertical?

I'm producing a database in which I can print out a 'Movement Order' which shows the entries from another table. It would be great if I could have the 'Roll No's' running across the page as oppose to down the page so I can fit them on one A4 (if there are lots of rolls).

Thanks

Nope - portals are vertical.

The answer to printing is to print your report from a layout based on the 'child' table, where the body part reports the data.

OK, makes sense, is there a way of formating a portal for during printing then?

Would I have to have all other text in the header and/or footer?

I know I can get the same answer using a 'List' calculation, can this be made to read in the horizontal? At the moment it splits the 'roll number' with a carriage return so also reads down

Thanks for your help

Depending on your data, you may be able to incorporate some of the work around techniques that have been used such as multiple one line portals, repeating fields, or using GetNthRecord ().

However, without knowing what your data limits are or your expected result it is hard to advise.
