Records Per Page in Crystal Reports 9

Hi,

I have a requirement where I need to print 6 records per page.  I have placed this recordset in the DETAILS section.  I want to print some information immediately after printing the 6 records.  But when I place this text in REPORT FOOTER, it prints it in the end of the report.  When I place this text in PAGE FOOTER, it prints it in the end of each page.

I want this text to print in every page IMMEDIATELY AFTER printing 6 records in details section.

How should I go about it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,
Kamlesh

Are you able to use a grouping field for each set of 6 records.  If so then do this.

If not then what sort of info do you want to print after each set?

I am not doing any grouping for this set of 6 records.  They are just displayed as they are fetched from SQL Server.

The info displayed below the set is mostly static text, and it occupies more rows than the 6 rows that prints in details.

If there is no grouping available and you just want to print something after 6 records then do this.
Insert into the detail line a running totals field.  
You want Count any field in the detail line for this running total.
You can suppress the field once it's working.

Right click the 'D' of the detail line in design view.
Click Insert Section Below.
You now have a second detail section (Db)
Size this so that it fills the rest of the page when you have printed 6 records.
Put your static text into this section.

You now have to conditionally suppress this section so that it prints only every 6 records.
To do this right-click Db and choose Section Expert
Click the blue 'X+2' button aagainst the entry for 'Suppress(No Drill down)'

Create this formula which is:
Rtotal0 Mod 6 <> 0

Where Rtotal0 is the name of your RunningTotals field.

The expression:
Rtotal0 Mod 6
divides the curernt value of Rtotal0 by 6 and returns the remainder.  So the section is suppressed when there is a remainder and is not suppressed when there is no remainder.
