Title

Print Multiple portals

Post

Hi guys,

 

I'm designing a standard invoice database in FM 10 advanced and I have a problem printing out the Order Layout (Print Order).

In my Form Order layout I have 2 portals that represent 2 different tables. They are both lines, one for Products (table) and one for Services (table).

How can I make to print filemaker the records from both tables?

 

I already tried to print 2 portals under eachother but I don't like the layout because if 1 of the lines is empty you have a lot of space under that portal.

 

So in a nutshell... I have 2 tables with line items that I try to print. But if one is empty I don't want that table to be printed. Between the tables on the print there is also text (ex. PRODUCT and SERVICE)

 

It should look something like this:

 

PRODUCTS

(line items Products)

 

SERVICES

(line items Services)

 

TAX     $$$ 

TOTAL  $$$ 

 

 

If one of the tables is empty I don't want it to just be white but to be 'dissapeared')

I also added an example so you would see what I mean.

 

Thanks a lot guys!
