Posted 4 August 2017, 2:45 pm EST<p> <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)<br> <br> For that, I need to know the final size of the rendered report.<br> <br> How can I get that value???<br> <br> JLuis</font></p>
Large Custom Paper Size for Preview a report

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.
