I am printing the notes of a sales order quotation at the end of the totals.  I have put it into it’s own group footer as follows:

 

 

And the settings of the group footer are as follows:

 

And the properties of the text box are as follows:

 

I’m expecting this note to print only once, over two pages (not on each page).  But this is the result:

 

 

Can you see how the note cuts off?  It is two lines.  Then it prints again on the next page:

 

 

Also not both lines.

Please help with the correct settings so that one line of this note prints on page one and the second line prints on page two :-)

Hi @MarciaW ,

In the standard Sales Order Quotation report (SO641000), the totals section has the properties PrintAtBottom and PrintOnEveryPage set to true.  I’m not sure how the report designer will interpret any sections that follow a PrintAtBottom section.  I made the report total section not visible in my test environment, and the note then seemed to split properly across two pages.

Hope this helps!

Hi Laura

Thanks, but I’m not referring to the totals section, rather a note that needs to print across multiple pages, it’s a very long note.  I eventually worked it out as follows:

The section containing the note is a footer section, and has the following settings:
 

 

The key thing being “Keep together” = false.

Then for the actual field itself the settings need to be:

 

 

With the key thing being Can Grow, Can Split and Wrap Text all set to True.

With these settings, notes spanning multiple pages print properly.
