I am using  Powerbuilder 8.0.4 Build 10784. In my report i inserted other two reports using insert report option and retrieval arguments set from the main report.

But automatically the preview of the main report changes to a page layout with breacks. but i want it to display without page break. I tried lot

help me to solve this.

     if you've selected more than two reports in one ( composite/nested ) then the report by default is displayed
    in the print preview mode. This is how powerbuilder works. When you are saying "he preview of the main report changes to a page layout with breacks" i assume you are seeing a blue link bordering the edges of the page , if so, thats the default display and theres no other way for it.

    There are some things that you can do using poweruilder and some things which you cannot. If u r using composite dws thats how its gonna look. Thats the functionality of PB.Your problem was "But automatically the preview of the main report changes to a page layout with breacks. but i want it to display without page break"

    The answer is using nested reports its not possible using Powerbuilder which is what i've answered. If you dont reply to the resposne how are we supposed to know u still needed more info. The reason other experts didnt reply is cos they know my answr was a valid one cos thats how PB functions.

    Anyways if ur still looking for another soln , create a datawindow based on sttored procedure. Thats the only option available with you. Not nested but a single dw which will be based on temp table creation.
