Create new printjob for subreport not working on some systems

edited October 2016 in General
Hello,

We need to create a new print jobs for the output of different
subreports. To do that we set "NewPrintJob" in the category "Generation"
to true and "PrintBehaviour" to "pbSection".

When we print such a report that contains for example 3 subreports we
get 3 different print jobs in the Windows printer queue ... on the most
systems.

However on some systems (not ours, that are systems of a customer) the
windows printer queue shows only one single print job.

The report is exactly the same on each system, so i guess that the
problem is not located in the report itself because with the settings i
described above it should work, i think.

Can you give me a tip what causes the Windows printer queue not to
generate different print jobs?

We currently (still) use RB V 15.04.

Thanks in advance
Ralf

    Hi Ralf,

    The Subreport.NewPrintJob feature only works when Subreport.PrintBehavior is
    pbSection.

    This feature has been in place for many years - never had any reported
    issues. Internally the feature creates a separate TppPrinterDevice instance
    to print the subreport. This results in a separate print job being created.

    I would check that the report did not get modified in some way.

    After the problems with that report i created a simple test report that was
    designed EXACTLY with that parameters but it still shows the same (wrong) behaviour.

    Could it be an issue with a special printer drive (that prevents creating more
    then one print jon for example)?

    Hi Ralf,

    I would try the simple test report w/different drivers on same machine. If
    it works with other drivers, then it must be the driver. You could then try
    downloading the latest driver from the manufacturers web site.
