Hello,

I have a report that shows the customer information. The number of the pages vary based on the number of records for each customer.

I need to add a document (text object) at the the beginning of the each report in a new page. No page number should display on the new page. Report structure is like this one.

PHa

PHb

PHc

GH1

GH2

GH3

GH4

Details

GF4

GF3

GF2

GF1

PFa

PFb

Any help would be appreciated Thanks!

Try this:

1. Create a group header at the customer level above the one that already exists. Put the information you need in that new group header.

2. In the Section Expert, do the following:

a. Turn on "New Page After" for that new section.

b. Turn on "Reset Page Number After" for the Group 1 Footer.

c. For the page footer sections, click on the formula button to the right of the Suppress checkbox (DO NOT check the checkbox!) and enter the following formula:

PageNumber = 1

4. If you want the page number in the page footer to start at 1 on the page after this new header section, create a formula like the following and use it instead of the page number:

PageNumber - 1

Hi Dell,

Thanks for the solution. It worked 🙂
Only issue I am seeing is 'Format with Multiple Column' is ON for details sections. So, newly added text in group is coming out in 2 columns. Is there any way to break association of this 'Format with Multiple Column' property on new group.

Thanks in advance!

In the Section Expert for the details section, go to the Layout tab. Make sure that "Format Groups with multiple column" is NOT checked. That's the only thing I can think of that might help.

But it will break 'Format Groups with multiple column' on all group ,not just the newly added group.

Hi Neha Arora, one way to do this is to Insert > Subreport and place the Subreport on your Report Header. The Subreport would have Links on your customer ID field.

If you provide a description of what should be in the cover page (I'm assuming that is represented by PHa, PHb, etc.) I might have a sample report.

Hi Jamie, Thanks for the reply. But I want new text page(static) for each customer. If I select multiple customers, then it should be able to produce 1 text document then customer 1 report and again text document & customer report 2 and so on...
