Crystal Reports formatting

Posted on 2011-05-09

I am trying to ensure a section of my report prints in an absolute place on the page - so it fits in with a perferration location on preprinted stationary we use.

However depending on the details of the report, the subseqent sections are moved downwards and therefore don't always line up with the preprinted paper.

Is there any way to 'lock' a section to the exact position on the page?

I see there is relative positioning, however that is for horizontal placement only.

    There is no way that I am aware of to lock a section vertically except the page header and footer.

    You could try to count the lines printed inthe details section and force a new page after some number of lines.
