    Hi Tom,

    Yes and No.... Depending on the rest of the report determines how big each section is going to be. Since the page footer is based on the printer paper size it can also alter the page footer.

    The problem is until the page is rendered CR can't determine much room each section has and the more complex the report is the more it becomes impossible to determine in code.

    CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel.Section boSection;

    boSection = rptClientDoc.ReportDefController.ReportDefinition.PageFooterArea.Sections[0];

    boSection.Height = 1000; // 1440 twips = 1 inch

    What may help is why do you need to?

    Report Design forum may be able to help also, I've see posts where this was done and how to determine the amount of space for each... You may have to do this Report Design side, may not be possible through exposed API's.

      Thanks Don.

      Since what i need is to print the report like the following

      ( on odd pages )

      emp01 emp06

      emp02 emp07

      emp03 emp08

      emp04 emp09

      emp05 emp010

      ( on even pages)

      emp11 emp14

      emp12 emp15

      emp13 emp16

      that is, different number of records on different page

      i try to use 2 page footer sections , "page footer a" and "page footer b"

      then try to use formula to suppress the "page footer a" or "page footer b"

      if (pagenumber mod 2 = 0 ) then




      but it doesn't work !

      is there any other way to meet the requirement ? Thanks
