hello, I have pdf report in that i have added the sale_description of the product.

when i have long product description menas about 100 lines then when i trying generate the report then it gives me the following error:

  Print Error

The document you are trying to print contains a table row that does not fit on one page. Please try to split it in smaller rows or contact your administrator.

So is there any limitation of the content in rml report.

Thanks in advance for your help

A table row in RML is a so-called Flowable object. It is either on one page if there is sufficient place available or it is moved to the next page.

But it is not possible that one row spreads about several pages. Therefore you have to assure that a table row is not larger than one page. I suggest to use something link [[ len(value) > 100 and value[:100] + ' ...' or value ]] to limit the size of a value.
