Applying a space filler

Accountants Enterprise in Australia only

The Space Filler is useful in conjunction with column templates. It places a marker in the Format header column, which is then used to resize the Format with respect to the page size and the amount of information shown on the page.

For first year accounts, it will allow the first column to appear on the right-hand side of the page instead of simply removing the second column from sight.

Space fillers can be used to decrease the width of a column when additional columns are generated by a column template.

When you have added a Space Filler, a marker will be displayed to allow you to easily identify the columns that have been adjusted.

To apply a space filler within Report Designer (on the Formats tab)
  1. In the Explorer pane of the Formats tab, select the Format that you want to apply the Space Filler to.

  2. Right-click the column heading and select Space Filler.

  3. Select the Apply Space Filler option.

  4. Enter the Minimum Column Width, which specifies the smallest allowable column width to be used during preview. The setting is used when the column is adjusted to fit column templates on the same page and allows the format designer to control the appearance of the report.

  5. Click OK.
