Restricting details area

    Hi

    I am doing a report to print invoices on pre-printed laser invoice forms.
    The invoices can go on more than one page potentially depending on the
    amount of details.

    On my report the detail section contains a sub-report due to the complexity
    of the detail section. I need to keep the detail section to a certain height
    so it fits on pre-printed invoices' detail box. I set detail 'Can Grow' to
    No, the detail section remains fixed height and fits on the invoice form but
    skips any details that do not fit in the area instead of taking the overflow
    details to the next page within the same fixed detail area. If I set the
    'Can Grow' to Yes then as you would expect the detail section becomes
    variable height and does not remain within the pre-printed form fixed detail
    box. How do I solve this problem?

    Thanks

    Regards

    Ah, the joys of pre-printed forms!

    There is no easy solution, beyond writing a lot of code. Is is possible to
    work with blank paper and put the invoice form's boilerplate in your report?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
