Hi all,

I have a web page that goes through a loop and prints a job card to the web page, then the client clicks the print button to print the job card for the resources.

Problem:
After every job card I have <p style="page-break-after: always"> to insert a page-break so they all print on a seperate pages.  

This works great until the last page where it then prints out a blank page.
As the client prints out around 100 single job cards and 25 batched job cards a day the client will have approx 125 a day (over 3000 a month) blank pages.

can anyone please help on how I can prevent the last page from printing.

Thanks

I tried this as I thought that would resolve it but I still got the blank page printed at the end.

This is what I have done.

I have put the Page break after the </table> but as it is in loop it puts one after every </table> even the last one of which i dont want it to do.

why dont you do a loop through the records then if the current record is the last one do not insert pagebreak

example

<%
i = 1

do while not rs.eof
'do your stuff

if i < rs.recordcount then
response.write "<p style=""page-break-after: always"">"
end if

rs.movenext
loop
%>

Hope this helps, untested but looks ok
