Printing 3 copies on one page RRS feed

  • User-1745175370 posted

    Hi,

    I have a requirement to build a report with three copies of the data appearing on one letter size page.

    This is for recipts where I have the Receipt Header with data like the Name of the person, the Receipt number and the date.  I can then have multiple lines of receipt details detailing different accounts that receipt might be split up into.

    So it might look something like this:

    Receipt #: 12345

    Date: 27th June 2012

    Received from: Frank Cazabon

    Account         Amount

    Premium        100.00

    Suspense       200.00

    Total              300.00

    This will then get printed three times on the page.

    Each copy will take up 1/3 of the page height and there is a background image that will get printed in each copy.

    Any help will be welcome as I have been struggling with this for far too long.

    I'd suggest creating a sub report of the reciept and then have it inside a parent report.  That way it will repeat on the parent report each time you have data.  Set the height to fit 3 times on the main report (Only have to put sub report on once) and it should do the trick.

    Thanks, I've never done a sub-report before but I'll try that and let you know how I get on.
