Reports: one record per page


D

Dave

I have a report of orders with no header or footer, just a detail section.

I want each record (order) to appear on its own page.

I select the orderid in the Sorting and Grouping dialog box and experiment
with various "Keep together" options. However, none of them will produce
what I want: only one order record per page. I always get more than one
order per page.

What am I doing wrong?

Try setting the Force New Page property of the section to Before.

Just set the detail section's ForceNewPage property to
Before Section.

Thanks guys

I tried the "Before Section" property value and my first page was blank. So
I switched to "After Section" and it gives me what I need.

Thanks again.

The blank page you got by using Before Section is probably a
blank Report Header section. If that's the case, you may
want to Make the header invisible.
