SRB: Keep Together doesn't seem to be working

Postby ScottP » Wed Mar 09, 2011 9:44 pm

Hey all!

Attached is a screenshot of a report I am creating in Base with SRB 1.2.1.
In the Detail properties, I have "Keep Together" marked as "Yes" but as you can see in the screen shot, my detail section is not kept together when it prints.

Do I misunderstand the purpose of Keep Together, or did I find a bug?
Thanks!
-Scott

Are you saying the bug is now fixed? Your :roll: shows flavors of sarcasm, but I can't be sure.

As you have discovered setting 'Keep Together' in the 'Properties Pane' to 'Yes' has no effect.
However if you open the 'Sorting and Grouping' window 'Ctrl+G'.
Select the relevant group then to the right of 'Keep Together' select 'Whole Group'.
I hope this works for you it does for me.

I'm running 4.0 and apparently this bug has yet to be addressed(the "keep together" button in Properties has no effect) I went looking for this and saw the posting from 3 years ago. Really? 3 years? Hmm.... Going to go back to my project and try it. Thanks, ChrisB.

The developer for Sun/Oracle Report Builder dropped out of the project a few years ago. No bugs will be fixed (and no more features, and probably more bugs will happen with future versions of AOO) unless a programmer takes over the project.

I think LibreOffice has incorporated the SRB inside of LibreOffice and is continuing the development that way. If you use reports a lot, you might explore switching to LibreOffice instead of AOO.
