Re: Printing multiiple lines on a standardized form
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Do you looking for this maybe -
Records Per Page
The Records Per Page property is used to produce reports on pre-printed forms, where the header and footer are in a fixed position and a fixed number of lines exist on each page. In this case, a fixed number of records should be output to each page, with the last page padded with empty lines.
hope this help

Fix size table=Yes works perfectly, but ends up with a blank are where I need to put the section for totals (which need to follow the details, and only on the last page).
Fix size table=No is funky - and I suspect the problem relates to the text controls which are alongside the table.
If I print with an 8" vertical form, the form actually expands vertically beyond 8" (with a blank area at the bottom). Magic has always had a problem dealing with vertically expanding controls (in this case the table) next to other controls, and this is probably just another example.
Probably simplest for me to limit myself to fixed-width text and go the RTF route
Thanks for your help.

Try the following. From the Data Repository do a Ctrl+G on your table, tell it to generate a “Print” output. Not sure if 9.4 did this but XPA will generate an output with a table control in a form, but I’m sure you have a copy of XPA around you could do this with just to verify
I would then:
You should get the desired output… at least you do in XPA.
Note: There should only be one form and it should be a “Detail” area and Expand Form = No
Thanks. Got it working
Output form needed to be set to Auto instead of Top (of course)
Also I needed to set table height to fixed, otherwise it would print just 2 records per page and pull the bottom text up to below the 2-record table instead of at the bottom of the page. I might be able to handle the text shift via a separate form, but I'm not sure why it printed just 2 records per page. Any thoughts?
