Issues related to Gap between header and section

hi folks.

Using a section on one of the  WEBI reports, I am getting wider gap between header and section for the "first value of the object" where section is setup compared to all other pages. Except the first page, the gap between header and section seems all okay.

For the section, both these New Page properties are checked - "Start on New Page" and "Repeat on every page".

Also, getting this thick bold line (pic attached) using Breaks on one of the columns (1st column) with the table used in the report. For the break display properties, I have the 'Break Footer' and 'Apply Sort' turned On. Unchecking the 'Break Footer' results in this thick bold line gone but I need to get the sub-total values for that column.

Please suggest any ways to resolve these issues.

Thanks for your help with these!

    I'm having a little trouble visualizing the first issue you describe.  Does this happen only on the first page or on all pages except the first page?  Can you attach an image that demonstrates this gap?

    For the 2nd issue, could this thick line be the table borders for empty rows instead of 1 solid line?  For example, if I had 100 empty rows and the auto height set to to a small minimum height, it might appear that there was a large solid line when in reality it was just 100 small border lines stacked on top of each other.

    Just a thought, something to investigate.

    • hey,

      I found a KBA that describes this issue as by design.  It suggests a work-around of using a blank cell to align the table to.

      KBA - 1719366

      I tested this and saw the same behavior you are.  I then tested the work-around outlined in the KBA and it made the table position consistent between pages.

      Webi really isn't the best choice for pixel perfect reporting though so if predictable page spacing is something you require, I would suggest Crystal Reports instead.  Webi uses stylesheets and XML for formatting so there are a lot of factors involved.
