5.6 Portability Considerations
When working with reporting functions with Visual LANSA, you should be aware of the following:
- Applications that "fiddle" with the "page number" field(s) REPnPAGE during the production of a report may not function exactly as they do under IBM i . Under Visual LANSA the page number is set from an internal value and not actually taken at its face value from REPnPAGE.
- The use of the option *FILE for report width, length, overflow, etc has no meaning in a Visual LANSA context. Where *FILE is specified, the defaults from the system definition will be used to calculate form width, length, etc.
