Printing from SharePoint sends a blank page at the end of the document

Printing issue with SharePoint and internet explorer

Versions of IE tested (7, 8 ) : Both create an extra page after the report.

Firefox : does not create this extra page


The tr tag is assigned a class called “runOnBrowserDisplayStyle”

This causes IE to create a page break while printing, hence creating a new page.


Removing the class from the masterpage solves this issue.

The only affect this has is that the web page has a cell at the bottom of the page which is styled as per the sharepoint theme (default would be light blue in colour)

With this change the printout is set to one page without the blue bar being printed


Dynamics Ax 2009 – Enterprise portal – Page deployment


A page in Enterprise portal is defined by 2 objects in Ax 2009

1. Web menu item URL

Path AOT –> Web –> Web Menu Items –> URLs


2. Page definition

Path AOT –> Web –> Static Files –> Page definitions


Every time a Page is changed (added / removed user controls / web parts) the page definition needs to be updated.

To do this locate the URL of the web page in the AOT

and right click –> Import


After importing the file, look at the page definition for the corresponding URL. It will not have an object in the current working Layer.



Deploying specific EP pages:

Right click on the page definition –> deploy page


This deploys the page and a message is shown

This deployment method is not supported for 64 bit machines, and some of the 64 bit machine I have worked with give issues and may not deploy. The only way to deploy it is by using the AxUpdatePortal.exe

NOTE: AxUpdatePortal.exe will redeploy the entire enterprise portal
