Table not going across multiple pages

Avatar

Level 2

I have two simple side-by-side tables that I want to stretch across multiple pages when necessary by clicking the Add Another button object.

I think I've done everything necessary to have the table repeat on multiple pages:

1. My table is in a subform. 

2. The subform is set to Flowed.

3. The table has Allow Page Breaks with Content

4. The table is not a group table

5. I have the Rows in Binding to Repeat Row for Each Data Item

What I do notice is that when I click on either Table and then click the Pagination tab in Object--- Pagination is greyed out

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Thank you.

Hi,

Check that the form is saved as a Dynamic XML Form in the save-as dialog.

Example of building dynamic tables here: http://assure.ly/gk8Q7a.

In relation to the pagination, did you create the form by importing an existing PDF or Word document? If so, you may have some trouble, as most imports do not allow dynamic behaviour.

Hope that helps,

Hi,

first of all thanks for the link to the tutorial

I have created a header on my master-page (just a Logo-picture). When my dynamic table reaches the end of the page, it creates a new page - any problem yet.

But on the new page, the table just starts directly on the top (y = 0). In this way the table is placed above my logo.

Is there any way to solve this problem?

Anything like "check if there is a header on master page and set new rows on next table under the header"?

Hi,

What you will need to do is resize the content area rectangle (purple dotted box) on the Master Page, so that the logo is outside the content area.

There is an example here: http://assure.ly/g0Wx7r.

Hope that helps,
