i am making a report on invoice. i have apreprinted format and i want to give the parameter as invoice no. between ? and ? and one invoice will come on one page.as i have told u earlier that it is a preprinted format and in this i make a report on group basis and in one invoice there can be many products and so the group footer varies the position depending on the rows in  the detail section and if i place the elements of group footer inpage footer as labels in the page footer and set their captions from the form with the help of recorset and then how can i simultaneously print multiple invoices.PLZ reply as soon as possible.
as i have already told it's a preprinted invoice form,in one  invoice there can be multiple rows and then after wards ihave to add their excise total,cess total and other totals but their is a fixed space in the invoice for all that.if the rows increases the items in the group footer scrolls down,i want them to be only in a fixed place and i am using microsoft data reports with vb6.0

Can you please specify exactly what you are looking for. I couldn't under stand what you are trying to do between page footer and group footer. And also what are you using as reporting tool.

With crystal reports -
To give invoice # from x to Y.
say
crystalreport1.selectionformula = "({Invoice.InvoiceNumber} > X AND {Invoice.InvoiceNumber} < Y)"

This will give you invoices between X & Y

You will have to design your report in WYSIWYG format using indexed LABELS instead of bound textboxes.  When I say WYSIWYG, I mean for your lay out your report JUST as you would want it to appear -- With what you are asking for, you will not be able to produce a banded report.

You must manually send the information to the LABELs that will contain the data you wish to present in your report.

Depending on the number of rows/records you want on each page, you may do a FOR..STEP +x.....NEXT loop to fill the indexed labels.

IF you are interested in hearing more, let me know!
