Fill final page with blank lines

I have written a report to act as a class register for music teachers. The data displays fine, but I have been asked to fill the final page of each report with blank lines so the details of any unexpected students can be added. I could add a fixed number of blank lines but this may push onto a new page. The only other possibility I could think of was to work out the number of records that would fit on a page, add five details sections with blank lines and suppress if the rownumber is greater than the limit. This sounds messy though - is there a slicker way to do this?

    Unfortunately I need horizontal lines also. It's one of those things that sounds like it should be so simple...

      OK.. then We can try with report footer..

      Dont go with paging option.

      and

      In the common tab,

      Uncheck the option"Print bottom of page"

      Check the "Keep together" option if you want.

      note:: But the number of rows will be fixed,. if you add 5 horrizondal lines(In table format).. only 5 rows will be added.

      And we cant check whether space is available or not in the last page in CR. So if you add 5 rows, That will go to next page if the last page doesnt have space to print those 5 rows..

    HI,

    Do you have any objects in report footer???

    If not, Add the lines into the report footer

    Goto select expert >Paging Tab > Check "New page Before" check box

    If yes, Add one more Report footer using "Insert section below". Do the same for it.

    Note: If you have Vertical lines, It should start with group footer's first point and end with page footers starting(It shoul exeed the report footer boundary)

    This will work for you.

    oh... OK.. got it.. you want this in your final page.. dont want new page.. then leave this option..

    Salah

    Thanks for the speedy response!

    Would this not push all of my blank lines onto a new page? I don't want to add any pages to the report, just fill up the last page with blanks lines.

      Do you want both vertical and horrizondal lines???

      If you want only vertical lines.. extend your vertical lines up to page footer..(should exeed the top boundary of page footer )..

      Need to think about horrizondal lines..lol
