Sub Reports on only half a page

Hi

I have a report in a letter format. When this reports prints I want another report(letter) to print afterwards.

So...

I have added a sub report in the report footer of my 1st report. (new page before checked).

My problem is that when the second report prints it is split in two.

I have got all my page footers on the first report suppressed also supress blank sections.

I have checked page settings and every thing is printing with A4 and small margins.

I have stretched my Report Footer on the first report so that it is big enough to hold my 2nd report.

I have selected can grow on the report footer subreport object

Any help or suggestions will be gratefully recieved.

Thanks

    Hi Jeanette,

    As I understand you have a sub-report in the report footer. When it prints it is split in to two pages.

    New page before is checked for the report footer of the main report.

    In the section expert select the report footer and check the check box for Keep Together.

    When this is checked all the lines will be kept together either on the current page (if there is room) or on the next page (if not).

    Also suppress the page footer of the main report. Check the condition if it is suppressed conditionally.

    Make sure there are no suppressed objects in the suppressed page footer

    Suppress all the sections in the main and the subreport which are not required.

    Regards,

    Aditya Joshi
