[Issue] Records per Page

Postby johnnyray0623 » Mon Jul 21, 2014 10:16 pm

I use the Report Builder for printing records from OO Base.
One record has several fields on separate lines and an image at the side of the text lines.
The report prints but breaks a record between pages; sometimes the photo overlaps the next page record.
How do I either set a certain number of records per page or force a page break to prevent a record breakup?

Open the "sorting and grouping" window (icon looks like a white square with some right-justified lines). For each group you want to keep together, select "whole group" (or "with first detail", if that's more appropriate) for the "Keep together" field.

You can also edit this by opening the report navigator and selecting each group name - the properties window will have a "keep together" field with the same options.

There is a bug that prevents this option from working all the time (Issue 98959), but it works most of the time.
