Error occuring "AREA OVERFLOW" when using xsl-fo for printing pdf documents.Please Help me.


I am using xsl-formatter for printing pdf documents.
i am usign xml and xsl and xs-formatter from antenna house.

I am calling a file(which has some static content)  from my xsl.

I am writing xsl:fo code to print pdf documents.

I created a table ,and in that i am calling the  static content file"

I am getting error "AREA OVERFLOW".

I am thinking that i have to keep some atribute ,so that if more content is there,it automatically prints the content into next page.

some code :

<fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
      <fo:simple-page-master master-name="FirstPage" page-height="29.7cm" margin-left="1.5cm" margin-
                    right="1.5cm" margin-top="1.7cm">
      <fo:region-body />
      <fo:region-before />
      <fo:region-after extent="1cm" />
    <fo:page-sequence master-reference="FirstPage">
       <fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-before"></fo:static-content>
        <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
      <xsl:call-template name="firstpage" />

<fo:page-sequence master-reference="FirstPage">
     <fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-before"></fo:static-content>
         <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
      <xsl:call-template name="call_rules" />

<xsl:template name="call_rules">
<fo:table width="18cm" space-after="0cm">
       <fo:table-row height="0.5cm" text-align="center">
              <fo:block space-before="0.4cm" linefeed-treatment="preserve">
          <xsl:value-of  select="sg:ReadContent('Rules.txt')"/>

I am getting AREA OVERFLOW error.

my text file "Rules.txt" is too big,
thats why i am gettign this error.

If more text is there,that should be printed in next page.

thanks a million times for your help.

always better to fix the reionbody with some margin.
for example keep some margin
<fo:region-body margin-bottom="2cm" />
if more content is there ,formatter engine automaticaally displays content in next page.

But i am not sure.

check it out
try once.
