Fix size of a subreport and continue next page

Hi experts,

I need to fix the size of the detail section and I can not use the number of records because they may have different number of lines.

I can not use the Pagefooter section because  I have a background image from Pageheader to the end of the report and if i grow footer, the image doesn`t cover the entire report.

I tried creating a subreport and give fixed size (Can grow not checked), but truncate the records and not continues in the next page.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

    Hi Miguel,

    Count Number of character for each record and set a limitation, if the count is more than the limitation then split it other wise display it.

    Thanks,

    Sastry

      Count the number of lines containing the detail section would be a perfect solution. But as I have read in various forums, I can count the number of records, but not the number of lines.

      I imagine that knowing the number of characters that has the "descripction" field (the longer field) and dividing by the number of characters that fit per line, could know the number of lines per record and be able to set a page break when the number of lines of several records reach a certain value,.

      But I do not know how to implement this solution. If you can help me I'd really appreciate it.
