“How-to” implement a Copy Loop in Word report layouts


“How-to” implement a Copy Loop in Word report layouts

Some time ago, I found this post on Microsoft Dynamics Community about: “No. of Copies” doesn’t work in Word Layout reports, “No. of Copies” works only on RDLC reports.

Example:

Report 1306 Standard Sales – Invoice, “N. Copies” on request page

Post Topic

“Hi experts,

I had to produce a report via Word layout in NAV 2015 and it had the “No. of Copies” option on the request page. However, this option doesn’t have any effect on the word report and it only prints one copy. If required to print more copies, the user has to either save or preview the word report and then do it as if from a word document.

Will the option “No. of Copies” only works for RDLC reports or is there a way I can get it working on the word layout as well?

Your comments/help will be much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards.”

My Answer …after some tests:

“Hi, you are right!… “No. of Copies” doesn’t work in Word Layout report! .. after this i asked (some days ago) to NAV Team for a product improvementworkaround.”

Product Suggestion

“N. of copies” with Word Layout Reports.

I know that the option “No. of Copies” works only for RDLC reports (by design i think, this option is not existing on Mini World layout sample Reports) or is there a way i can get it working on the word layout as well?

If a user, either required printing more copies, this user has to “save” or “preview” the word report and then do it as if from a word document.

May be useful for “Post and Print” feature (“to print more copies.”..)

@Today, Solution is delivered by NAV Team Blog

“Because many partners asked to have this feature, an official solution (by my friend Duilio Tacconi of Microsoft) is today available. I tested this solution in preview before the post was published n NAV Team Blog, is a nice workaround, useful for “Post & Print” feature.
