[Solved] Changes only show on first page...

Postby Bazsl1 » Thu Mar 17, 2016 12:50 am

I added title text and deleted the author field and label. When I run the report the first page contains the title text and does not contain the author field or label, however, the second and subsequent pages do not contain the title text and do contain the author field and label. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

It sounds as if you've put the title text in the report header with a 'force new page after section'. If you want it on every page with the detail then put in the page or group header. If you want it just once, but with the detail, then set 'force new page' to None.

Sorry that I was not clear about my question. The native report writer automatically puts the following text in the page header.

Author: John Smith
Date: 3/18/2016

I placed the cursor at the end of Smith then pressed Backspace once to delete the John Smith field. I then pressed Backspace again to delete Author:. When I ran the report Author: John Smith did not appear on the first page but still appears on all subsequent pages. How can I delete Author: John Smith and have it removed from the page header on all pages of the report? Thanks.

Hello,
there are two pagestyles within the native report writer, you need either to delete the second or modyfy it also.

Sorry, Bazsl1I assumed that you were using the Oracle Report Writer extension. I do suggest that you get it as it will give you a lot more control over the report format.

F3K Total,
Sorry but I am new to Base. Where do I find the second pagestyle? When I open the report in Edit mode I only see one page. Thanks for your help.

Hello,
it's a writer document, press F11, then you'll see Default and first Page beyond the pagestyles, turn of the header of both.
