data flows off page

Mar 22, 2012 8:22 AM

I have a form which is flowed and the rows and table are set to allow page breaks.  However, when a cell has more content than will fit on a certain page, it does not go to the next page, it just runs off the end of the page.  Does anyone know why?

 

Thanks!

    Hi,

     

    You need to set up the page as Flowed, so that the content will flow correctly. See this example here that shows the steps in setting up a flowed form with tables: http://assure.ly/gk8Q7a. Also this which looks at Poitioned versus Flowed layouts: http://assure.ly/eSGQMt and http://assure.ly/e2jR0C.

     

    Hope that helps,

    Okay,

     

    In that case, select the row and in the Object > Field palette make sure that "Allow page breaks in content" is ticked. This will need to also be ticked in containers up the hierarchy otherwise you will get an error.

    Check the Warnings Tab, if there is a conflict in Allowing breaks, it will be highlighted there.

    That's right. The Report palette has three tabs, one of which is Warnings. You can open the Report palette from the Window menu. It normally appears at the bottom of the screen (you may need to drag the handle up).

    Hi,

     

    That is the Log tab. You need to check the Warnings tab. For example:

    Hi,

     

    Can you share your form?

    Hi,

     

    I have had a look. I think you would be better off with flowed subforms instead of tables (given your layout). Buttons and dropdowns will not break over pages in a table, whereas in a subform they will stay at the top of their subform, while other elements break over the page.

     

    Also I would lose a lot of the redundant pages.

    if you has another cell which is not allow page breaks(for example:text cell) in the same row,  That will lead to the problem。

    in that case, you can use a subForm wrap the "text cell",and set the subForm to "allow page breaks...", that maybe solve this problem。
