    <font face="Arial">    I using ARV for preview my report. But I would like to show my report in a continue way, i.e., I would like to change the paper's height and make it large enough to give the sense it was displayed in a continue way (just one large sheet)

       For that, I need to know the final size of the rendered report.

       How can I get that value???

    Run it and sum your sections' heights. Set your new papersize and run a second report (I would personally keep the first in case you offer your user the option of printing or exporting in addition to viewing). I hope you don't have any page headers, footers, or repeating group headers as the new papersize would prevent multiples of these from firing. I also believe you might run into an upper custom papersize around 400,000 twips.

    I was thinking the same, but what do you recommend:

    Use a invisible field to make the sum or use extern code (declare my report withevents and make the sum in vb)?

    I don't really have a recommendation either way as I haven't taken the time to see if there is a performance difference.
