# Keep Group Footer with last detail record

Hi all, hope someone can help with an Access 2007 report.  The problem I'm having is that if I have enough detail records in grouped report, the group footer will be printed on the following page with the group header.  This is result is like the attached image.

Report Top/Bottom Margins = .5"

Height = 1.5"
Auto Height = No
Can Shrink/Grow = No
Keep Together = Yes
Force New Page = None

Height = .375"
Auto Height = No

Height = .9583"
Auto Height = No
Can Grow/Shrink = No
Keep Together = Yes
Repeat Section = Yes
Force New Page = None
Keep header and first detail together is turned on in the Group, Sort, and Total section

Detail:
Height = .2083"
Auto Height = No
Can Shrink/Grow = Now
Keep Together = Yes
Force New Page = None

Group Footer:
Height = .0416"
Auto Height = No
Can Shrink/Grow = No
Keep Together = Yes
Force New Page = None

Page Footer:
Height = .1667"
Auto Height = No

Report Footer:
Height = 2.2083"
Auto Height = No
Can Grow/Shrink = No
Keep Together = Yes
Force New Page = None

I was able to solve the issue by putting a page break at the top of the detail section and adding the following code in Detail_Format, a suggestion I found on the Internet.

If Report.Top + Me.infracFooter.Height > 10619 Then

Me.PageBreak1.Visible = True

Else

Me.PageBreak1.Visible = False

End If

Everything seems to work, but I arrived at the '10619' value by trial and error and can't test every permutaion of the report because it can be filtered by several criteria and each group may have a different number of detail records.

Is anyone familiar with this type of set up and if so, can you tell me how I can reliably calculate the correct value to replace '10619'?  Or, is there a better way to do this?

TIA

What your looking for though is the page size, less margins, less footer size, less current position must be greater then the height of the detail section.

Keep in mind though that the report engine works in twips (1" = 1440 twips).

So:

(10*1440) - (.0416*1440) - Report.Top >  (.2083*1440)

then it will fit.

Jim.

Hi Jim,

This works well; much better than trial and error, and hard coding heights.  I really appreciate your assistance.
