Report with text spanning >1 page


Using PB6.5.  We have a record with several character columns used to
store large amounts of text (approx 4-30K characters).  Our columns are
2k, and can have 2+ rows.

About halfway down page 1 of our report, we need to display the text
columns consecutively down the page, possibly overflowing to 2nd & even
3rd pages.  Then we have another nested report to start on a new page
after the text.

We have tried many approaches - nested, composite, etc - but cannot get
the text to "page break" properly.  Logically, we want the text in one
or more nested reports, since we have a "header" before the text area,
and on each "overflow" page.  One problem - we do not know which column
will reach the bottom of the page and force the page break.

Perhaps we need to combine our columns into one text "blob", or rethink
our table structure?.  Last resort would be to store all the text line
by line, but that introduces other problems (with word wrap during data
entry, for example).

Has anyone had any experience with this sort of "text-intensive"

Printing >1 page of text in a report
Hi! I have made similar posts without success, and am now looking for basic advice as we are spinning our wheels on this one. We have a PB 6.5 report with about half a page of single line data fields, followed by a large text display area occupying the entire bottom half. The data source for this text needs to be large - in excess of 5,000 characters - and therefore "overflows" the 1st page. However we try to display the text (columns, nested report, nested in a composite..), PB does not page break within the text properly. A variety of problems occur - chopping tex...

From PAGE >> Login >> back to Same PAGE
I'm trying to get the Login link within a paragraph (Text/HTML module) to return visitor to that specific page once done. Now it recycles them to the Home page once done. I have the A HREF directing them to "/SOFTWARE/ProductTours/tabid/91/ctl/Login/Default.aspx", but it redirects to "/Login/tabid/66/Default.aspx" every time... and then pushes them to the Home once logging in. How can I get them to return to "/SOFTWARE/ProductTours/tabid/91/Default.aspx" once done?Thanks!! I assume you are using Forms Authentication. There is a FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage method that will do ...

Powerbuilder forces page breaks in my datawindow report!
I have a report dw_1 that retrieves records perfectly fine. As soon as I add a nested report based on a datawindow dw_2 that's supposed to retrieve all children records for each record in dw_1, a page break is forced if the children records in dw_2 take more than one page of space, and the record from dw_1 is shifted with it's children to the next page. Is that a powerbuilder bug? How can I work around it? ---== Posted via the PFCGuide Web Newsreader ==--- No, it is by design. The same behavior we have for group style DWs....

Printing > 1 page of text object.
Hello, I am having a problem with the datawindow on text fields that are greater than 1 page. Here is the layout of my datawindow. Header - Header information Detail - ( has to different sections) - Body - Comments. What is happening is when I have let say four ids that have to be printed. Each id must be printed on a separate page. The header, body and comments on the 1st id looks great. But the comments roll over to the next page. The next page is in the format. Header - 1st id Detail - Comment - (from 1st id) - Body ...

How to specify page breaks for printing a web page that spans more than 1 page?
I'm trying to make a catalog. I insert my product images into individual cells into a Webforms Table control (4 columns, x number of rows). This displays fine on a web page, where I'm able to scroll up and down to view all the products. However, I want to be able to print them so that I have 12 pictures per page (4 column, 3 rows). Currently when I try to print, it uses the page width as an indicator as to where the page breaks occur, thus I may have pictures that are cut in half!  What can I do to solve this problem? Are there specifi...

custom paging, << PREV 1,2-3-4,5 NEXT>> &page=3
Does any one know how you to do custom paging?, i read that allowing gridview paging, returns all the results that your query... for example it will retreive 150 records even if your page size is only 10 records, I am woundering how you would do a select method for this? and how you would create the hyprelinks to function at the bottom of a gridview, I notice on most websites they use a QueryString such as page=3 etc.? Cheers Success comes to those who prepare well and put in effort.
