    Apex 4.1.1 - Reports, optimizing column size when using break-word

    flo_stud
      Hello All,

      I'm using the following css style parameters in a report attribute of a classic report: "width:500px; display:block; white-space:normal;word-wrap:break-word; "

      The parameter break-word works fine, but my report column is as big as without using this parameter.
      (check out the images)
      As result there is a wide blank area between the "break-word"-text and the next coulmn of the report.

      Thanks and best regards,

      Florian

          Hello All,
          Welcome to the forum: please read the FAQ and forum sticky threads (if you haven't done so already)), and update your forum profile with a real handle instead of "985593".

          When you have a problem you'll get a faster, more effective response by including as much relevant information as possible upfront. This should include:

          <li>Full APEX version
          <li>Full DB/version/edition/host OS
          <li>Web server architecture (EPG, OHS or APEX listener/host OS)
          <li>Browser(s) and version(s) used
          <li>Theme
          <li>Template(s)
          <li>Region/item type(s) (making particular distinction as to whether a "report" is a standard report, an interactive report, or in fact an "updateable report" (i.e. a tabular form)

          With APEX we're also fortunate to have a great resource in apex.oracle.com where we can reproduce and share problems. Reproducing things there is the best way to troubleshoot most issues, especially those relating to layout and visual formatting. If you expect a detailed answer then it's appropriate for you to take on a significant part of the effort by getting as far as possible with an example of the problem on apex.oracle.com before asking for assistance with specific issues, which we can then see at first hand.

          What can I do ?
          Help us to help you by providing the information detailed above, and reproducing the problem on apex.oracle.com.

          What is the nature of the real data? Why doesn't it contain white space that would result in natural wrapping?
