Could you show us a Snapshot of what it looks like?
If you create a layout based on List view then you can have it handle pages better. After your Body you have a Sub Summary with Totals
I already try that but the sub summary with total don't stick at the bottom of the last page it follow the body part and slide up. Am I right ?
Title Header will always be on first page at the top (only that first page and no other pages)
Header will be on top of each page
Leading Grand Summary will be above the Body
Sub-Summary Part could be above or/and beneath the Body
Trailing Grand Summary will be after Body and any Sub-Summary Parts
Footer will be on each page
Title Footer will only be on the first page
You should also consider looking at free FileMaker Training Series
there are feature requests IMHO for footer 'last page', would be great to have them
thanks for correct the answer.
So the solution to hide and get this blank space is the only solution on FileMaker ?
any other solution to this kind of problem?
This a request since a lot of time I think. That's a basic feature.
does someone has an example of ray Cologon achieve that ?
His thread don't work anymore on the forum
I believe using a trailing grand summary could potentially work, depending on what information you need to show. It will only show up at the very end of the report.
A grand summary part usually contains one or more summary fields that display summary information (like totals) about all records being browsed. ... If you put another type of field in this part, FileMaker Pro displays data from the first record (leading) or last record (trailing) being browsed.
So, since your final information seems to be totals/summary type information, I don't see why this wouldn't solve your problem.
Thanks for your answer.
I have already try this. But the trailing grand summary don't stick at the bottom of the page or I don't how to do that.
if the second page body contains only two line item then the trailing grand summary slide up just above the body.
But why is it so important to locate this information at the bottom of the last page? If you relax that one stipulation, a trailing grand summary does exactly what you want.
Just because this a request of my client. their older software did this so they want to have the same layout as before.
If this is really impossible I will stay with my actual solution to hide the footer on all page except on the last one and leave the blank spaces on every first pages.
My question is just a simple design request my client are not the only one to want that kind of invoices I think.
Thanks to take time on this thread
Here is a file containing a grand summary that will print at the bottom of the last page. The file uses a sliding calculation field that enters a specific number of return characters based on the number of line items in the invoice. This allows the object in the Grand Summary to stay at the bottom of the page. It might take some trial and error to get the file to do what you want.
