N-up datawindow, where I need to do a page break per person

I have a datawindow, where they wanted multiple attendance dates to show across in a row

as opposed to 1 date per row

But... we run this datawindow for multiple people.

Normally, we wouldn't clear the datawindow... use a return 2 on the retrieve start

But, if I don't do a reset on the datawindow...and print each separately

it just dumps all the attendance dates in 1 page

I guess I would need to do page breaks per person... but, n-up won't allow me to do that

the datawindow reset is taking a long time, as it goes thru each person... and prints the datawindow

Any suggestions?

basically.... the datawindow is a an Attendance letter

with some text at the top and bottom... and the attendance dates in between

and I need 1 letter per person

    Hi Scott;

      Have you thought about creating a Tabular DataWindow with a Group Break on person ... then add the N-Up DWO into the group band as a child DW  - thus creating a NESTED DW pair to address your design goals?

    Regards ... Chris

      It was originally written in 10.2. What's in the zip is 12.5.

      I've tested the concept on versions 5.5, 8, 10.2, and 12.5. It fails on all of them. Haven't tried 12.6 yet.
