      layout setup

      Post

           fm 12 in browse mode a text field shows in header - in preview mode the text field does not show

           in layout setup printing the 2 colums down first works  - the 2 colums across first does not

           any suggestions

               In preview mode, the data in a field shown in the header comes from the first record listed on that page. In browse mode, the data comes from the current record. That is one possible explanation as to why the field seems to disappear in preview mode.

               Not sure what you mean by your last issue. I wouldn't expect Printing while in layout mode to work at all. "Does not work" doesn't tell us HOW it isn't working and leaves me guessing. I would guess that perhaps your view is not set to list view, you are printing using the current record option or you are expecting to see two columns while in Browse mode when the multiple columns are in fact, only visible in Preview mode or when printing/saving as PDF.

                   Please explain what happens when it doesn't work. It should work, so knowing how it fails for you can provide a useful clue.

                     the second column printed when you use 2 columns down first, is printed on a second page when useing 2 columns across first  -  both print records in same order  -   i can live with 2 columns down  if not a easy solution  thanks

                       Do you have a sub summary layout part? Did you specify a page break after/before each such occurrence?
