i am trying to print out a datagrid.  the datagrid is listing out card orders ordered by value.  i need each card value to be on a different page. ie page 1 will list out 25 $49 cards, page 2 will list out 50 $29 card, etc....

my initial approach was to use the word com object to build a new word doc and the redirect the user to the doc.  however, once i came across System.Drawing.Printing i figured there should be a way to do it right from the web page.

any ideas?

Because the web page is at the client the only way of printing pages is with client script. There is a way of inserting page breaks with style sheets
