Copy of table in case of a page break

Hi all,

I need some help for a page break issue within a print form.

There are 2 tables. One is representing the header and the other one is the Content table.

  • Header table with 9 rows
    • The Content is loaded from a database into the table
    • depending on the content I need to hide and show rows
  • Body table with various rows

When the body table causes a page break I need to have a copy of the header table at the next page with exactly the same content.

Getting the page break for the body table, I have no Problem but I need help with the copy of the header table.

Problem:

In case of a page break caused by one table, I need a copy of another table at the next page as well!.

Can someone help me with that?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Lisa

    Hi Lisa,

    I would suggest that you wrap the header content into it's own subform to achieve this. I have done something similar on several forms and if you wrap that content into a subform then you can set it as an overflow leader for page breaks. This is a very common thing for us so I build the forms conceptually like this:

    PAGEFORM

    HEADER

    CONTENT

    The idea here is that header & content are wrapped within the form PAGEFORM and in this PAGEFORM I would set my overflow leader to HEADER.

    Hope this helps out.

    Regards,

    Hi Lisa,

    another solution would be, that you create a tabel with Header and put your first table right here. So yu have the option, to decide, when and where to print.

    But the one of Ryan might to be the nicer one. I think I took a lesson for free and will remember that.😊
