Nested Table Overflow Issue

Hi Experts,

I am creating a form that is required for our India business which will be printed for billing documents. I have a table with 5 columns. The first column is for the billing document line item number. I then merged the last four columns together and inserted a table with 23 rows and 4 columns. So each billing document line will have 23 rows of information:

The header data, which prints before this table, contains an address which will only print on the first page. So, depending on the number of lines in the header address, the first page of the document will contain only the header information. The table does not start printing until the second page. After that, the table flows properly. I.e.: If not all 23 values for a line item will fit on the page, the table will break and the remaining values will print on the following page. The Main subform for the page is set as flowed. Since the line items will break properly after the first page, I'm not sure what setting I have wrong. I REALLY need some help on this as this is supposed to go live next week.

Thanks!

Julie

    Does any one have any ideas for me? I've been playing with this for 2 days and I'm totally stumped. When I view the form using Preview PDF in SFP, the form flows fine. However, when I actually do a print preview in VF03, the table starts on the second page instead of the first page below the heading information. While debugging, I found that if I deleted enough of the address lines to give the table enough space for the first item to fit, then it will start printing on the first page and flow properly to the second.

    With full address:

    Page 1

    Page 2

    When I delete enough lines from the address so the first line will fit:

    Page 1

    I could really use some help.

    Thanks!

    • Hi Juergen,

      I've now got this working! I selected the DetailRow and then selected 'Group as Section'. I have to be honest, I'm not exactly sure what this does. I did some Googling and only found explanations saying that it groups the rows together, but not really why you would want/need to use it. But for some reason, when I did this, the detail table then started printing properly starting on the first page.

      Thanks for your suggestions!
