I suggest you create a separate layout used only for this printing requirement. You can then manage printing of that as well as the rest of your report, as part of a report printing script.
There is one way you can do this:
• create a calc field, type text, as
GetNthRecord ( Table::category ; Get ( RecordNumber ) - 1 ) ≠ Table::category ;
category & ": " & GetSummary ( Table::yourSummaryField ; Table::category )
• create a summary field, type List Of, that lists thats field
• place the summary field into your header, make the header large enough to accommodate the maximum expected content, set the field to slide up and check “Also resize enclosing part” (I think you have to experiment with that bit).
Thank you for your reply I will try this method
thank you for your reply I will try this as well and see which way gives me the best result
Hi I have created the layout I need so now I have 2 layouts i need to print both and also have the facility to save both as a PDF but I need both layouts to be combined into 1 print and one PDF
the maximum expected content could be any thing to be honest its for a estimate so i could go on for ever I have created a new layout that does what I need I just need to print both layouts from the same button and also save 1 PDF using both layouts
Thanks as always a good help
in the same solution estimates I have been asked if it is possible to have another summary page that will summarise all items. They would like a page that lists the items in the estimate along with the total amount for that item I'm not sure where to begin
