I am about to pull my hair out researching why this is not working, or sometimes not working. I have an image of a checklist that we output as a pdf with the students initials and last 4 of id in the footer. I have scaled it down to test each checklist image separately here. 2 out of about 10 images will display. All images are located in the same folder in the repository. All images will open from the repository alone. If I change the format to HTML they all work, but I need PDF. If I do a HOLD file FORMAT PDF, it will write the file and display all the images(checklists). Why will it not work with PCHOLD FORMAT PDF Any help is appreciated.

DEFINE FILE 1holdfiles/H_ACCEPTANCE_DRIVER_MANUAL

CHECKLIST/A2000V= 'checklist_transfer.jpg';

SUBFIRST/A1V= SUBSTR(240, FNAME, 1, 2, 1, SUBFIRST);

SUBLAST/A1V= SUBSTR(240, LNAME, 1, 2, 1, SUBLAST);

FOOT1/A4V= SUBSTR(9, VNUM, 6, 9, 4, FOOT1);

FOOT2/A6V= SUBFIRST || SUBLAST || FOOT1 ;

END

 

TABLE FILE 1holdfiles/H_ACCEPTANCE_DRIVER_MANUAL

PRINT

CHECKLIST AS ''

BY LNAME NOPRINT

BY FNAME NOPRINT

BY PIDM NOPRINT

WHERE STREET_ADDRESS1 NE MISSING;

WHERE USERNAME NE MISSING;

WHERE RESD NE 'M';

ON PIDM PAGE-BREAK

FOOTING

"<FOOT2"

ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF

ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF

ON TABLE SET STYLE *

ENDSTYLE

Thank you Waz. Yes it is dynamic. The correct checklist depending on the student type needs to be displayed. I opened a ticket with TIBCO and after a lot of trial and error with them, we discovered it was the image format! I guess .jpg is not supported now. I changed all the images to .gif and works like a charm, like it use to
