I am using Rave 6.05 with Delphi 7 and printing some custom reports using the TRvSystem and TTablePrinter components.  I have a base and detail detail TTablePrinter and both have the ReprintHeader option set to true.  My problem is that when I print the report, the column headings of the base TTablePrinter only print the first time on the first page.  Is this a bug in the components or am I missing something?

I use Rave quite a bit and I've never heard of the TTAblePrinter component, so I can't help you there. What I do know is that inside Rave there are Bands and DataBands. There is a distinct difference between these two: DataBands **CYCLE / ITERATE** through each record and show any accompanyinig header or footer bands. For example if you do this:
-BAND (plain) <-- put your column headings and set it to print once per page
-DATABAND (connected to your RvDataSet)

If you can't find a setting that makes it appear at the top of every page, try doing the above except make the BAND a Master Header of the Databand.
Hope that works.

RfWoolf,

  Thanks for your response.  The TTablePrinter component is with the code based Rave reports.  In it you create the columns and dimensions of the report layout and then attach events to the initialization, finalization and printing of each of the headings, lines and footings of the report.  My problem seems to be comming from when I force a new page (TTablePrinter.newPage).  It seems to be ignoring the heading and continuing the lines printing.

oh I thought you were using the rave designer, didn't know you were coding it. If you can find a way to implement a band header then that might solve the trick.
