I need to force a page break for a report I have written.

I have tried the PAGE_BREAK() that I found in the logic documentation but it gives me a thread exception.

The documentation is not very clear where to place this in logic.

Any ideas?

Bill

Is it possible for you to do a FLD jump to (say) the last field in LR that will print on the Absolute last line of the page?

Bill,

There is a known bug with the page break property. If I remember correctly it has been fixed but I am not sure on which version. What are you on?

I looked through my notes. We reported this on Dec 8 so I think you will have to be on 411. We are not so I am not sure if actually fixed.

Lewis, Thanks for the reply.

Until we download the new kernal, I just added field jumps as mentioned earlier and it works.

I used PAGE_BREAK() successfully in control break logic on a simple report. In my report there are two logical sub-routines (lsr) where lsr 01 is a one-time read and lsr 02 is browsing and generating the report.

In the lsr 02 I use a control break on the primary key and specify the variable positions and in Logic Before it simply states PAGE_BREAK().

I have left the Page Length in the characteristics blank (i.e. remove 56 etc) and finally I had to make the first data variable in the fields an Absolute.

This seems to work without crashing on v5.5, r345 Unix.
