Page Heading - Crosstab DW with N up newspapercolumns

Hi Guys

Silly question regarding the page heading repeating in a Crosstab report with N up newspapercolumns. Is there a way to stop the page heading repeating? A picture paints a thousand words, see below:

The page heading objects are placed in the Foreground (had to do this to get the to span multiple columns). I have not used Crassyab or N up reports much on there own and never done the two before 😊

PB Version 12.5.2, is there a way to solve this?

    There is a option "HideSnaked" fĂŒr dw object.

    If you set this the object appears only once per page.

    You can create a composite datawindow and place there the header and your report (the report without the header).

      Hi David;

      Tip: You do not need to use an N-UP DW presentation scheme to deliver an N-UP look & feel. Any Tabular DW can deliver the N-UP presentation layer! Just have a look at the print specifications tab in the DWO's properties pane and scroll down to the Newspaper properties section, as follows:

      The only restriction to make this work is that the DW must be in Print Preview mode in order to see the Newspaper column behaviour. However, this would not be an issue when the DW is within a Composite or Nested DWO parent and in these modes, the DWO's are always display in Prrint Preview mode by default. The Newspaper Tabular DW's not only behave like N-UP but will also give you better layout control. [food for thought]

      I think Rene's suggestion is the best (IMHO) by using a Composite (or Nested) Parent DW and place the Crosstab in the Detail band. Then use a Freeform DW in the header to display the tombstone information & suppress it after page #1.

      Just my $0.02.
