Crystal Report counting record

I have a report in crystal report. It is a invoice report. It has a grouping on invoice number and a detail section where the "products" are listed.
Of different reasons I have to use a variabel MaxNuberOfLines and when I reach the correct number of lines I add a page break. When all the records for one Invoice is printed I print the invoice sum and print the giro that are in the page footer.

I been able to to all this (almost) having only one challange left.

Let say it is allowed to print execly 4 records per page. So if it is 6 records I will have 4 on page one and the two other on page two as well as the giro and the invioce sum.
This works OK but if it is 4 records on the invoce I gets the for record on one page and the sum/giro on the other. This is not want I want, I want it all on one page.

Here is the code for the detail_format I have
(Linje is norwegian for lineNr

Linje = Linje + 1 'counting the lines
If (Linje = MaxNuberOfLines ) Then 'reach the maxlines
    Linje = 0 'put the counter back to 0
    Me.Section3.NewPageAfter = True 'add a page break
   
Else
    Me.Section3.NewPageAfter = False 'dont break page

End If

So the thing is that I dont want to put the pagebreak IF it is the last record in section even if MAXLINES has been reached.

anyone?

There may be two ways to solve this one. First, the Crystal Report control has a property called .RecordsSelected. If you use that after you have set your selection formula, it should come back with the number of records you will have. THen you can do this with your code:

Linje = Linje + 1 'counting the lines
    If (Linje = MaxNuberOfLines ) and (Linje < Section3.RecordsSelected)Then 'reach the maxlines
        Linje = 0 'put the counter back to 0
        Me.Section3.NewPageAfter = True 'add a page break
         
    Else
        Me.Section3.NewPageAfter = False 'dont break page

    End If


OR

I'm assuming you have your code in a loop. Somehow you know when to stop the loop. If you know that, use the same condition you use to break the loop for determining when to page break. If the loop is ready to end, then don't page break.

If my second solution didn't make any sense, post the rest of you r code for this function and maybe I can figure it out then.

One other note, for your .RecordSelected to actually show the correct number, you must do a Me.Section3.RetrieveDataFiles command first, but it must be after your .RecordSelectionFormula property is set (if you have one).
