    Pastel - Forms Designer

    Good morning,

    I have designed our companies forms in forms designer, that part is easy, but with a portrait design, I can't fit all the info I need in the detail section, for example, we would like to use Code, Description, Supplier Code, Cost Code, Qty, Unit,
    Unit Price, Disc and Nett Price
    . Is there a way to design a landscape form? I cannot find such setting anywhere in the design application...

    Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Chris.

    Look in the pastel directory for formsdesigner.exe(its an older version of the formsdesigner) .Create a new form and Under printer setup select landscape.
    This will resize the form accordingly.
    You can then open it using the new formsdesigner and edit as you require.
    (The landscape option doesn't seem to work on the latest formsdesigner version).

    Hello;

    I also have a question wrt forms designer. I would like our project number to print on customer statements. I have added the following fields to my customized statements:

    Database Field - Line Project [ccode]

    But when I print statements from Pastel - this column remains blank, even if I have assigned project numbers to the invoices.

    Hope you can help

    Project codes are line item specific, not invoice specific, and the standard statement layout shows invoices, not the line items per invoice, which is why the project codes are not reflecting.

    I thought that could be a possible solution, because I am now printing the line items on the statement. I did test this and that is correct, but still does not print project codes.
