REP-1219 <object name> has no size - length or width is zero

Hi Hussein,

I often encounter this error every time I deploy my Oracle Reports from desktop to the linux EBS R12.
Even if it is running fine at the desktop side.

REP-1219 <object name> has no size - length or width is zero

Solution
--------
Error REP-1219 is usually caused when a report is designed as a bitmap, but 
then is run under character mode.  The character cell boundary falls
midway down the boilerplate object border.  Hence, when Reports tries to map 
the object to a character cell, both the top and bottom of the object are 
mapped to the top of the cell.  

If you are using a standard report, convert the .rdf file to .rdf with 
dunits=character.  For example:

   r25convm userid=apps/apps stype=rdffile source=whatever.rdf dtype=rdffile
   dunits=character dest=whatever.rdf overwrite=yes batch=yes
My report is version 10g. What is the corresponding 10g command parameters for the above?


Thanks a lot
