Item description initialization

The field  “Text”, in the Sales order line details, is initialized depend on some parameters.

Capture

The parameters to set for the initialization are the following:

Accounts receivable > Setup > Forms > Form setup > General

SSRS Extra white pages

In the report properties, depend on the “Paper size”, Visual Studio sets automatically the width of the page.

We must consider left and right margins too.

Capture

The space that we can use is:

Paper width – left margin – right margin

In our case:

8,27 – 0,7 – 0 = 7,57 in

The body width does not be greater than this size.  To control the body size:

Right click on the body layout  > Properties:

Capture1

If the body size is greater than the paper size (with margins),  the system adds extra white pages.
