Report layout: output a portion of data on a separate page

Hi everybody!

WebI XI 3.1, the question is regarding report layout.

I have to build a report with the following structure:

-- according to filter criteria consider some amount of business entities of the same type

-- for each business entity represent 3 subsequent pages in a report, so that each page contains a table with some data about that entity (each table represent data according to its own criteria, so the tables are different).

I have created a report and added a new section (further referred as "main") based on business entity name (which is unique).

What I tried to do next is:

- place the 1-st table into the "main" section

- create an embedded section (for the "main" one, also based on entity name) and placed the 2-nd table there. Setup "Start on new page" for the second section. Run the report: fine, for each entity I have 2 pages - one page for one table.

- create another embedded section (for the "main" one, also based on entity name) and placed the 3-rd table there. Setup "Start on new page" for the third section. But as I run the report I get the output of the third section on the second page...

I really appreciate any advices.

Thank you!

HI Andrey,

If your table data is less than 3 pages (2 pages) then new section will start from 3rd page only

If each table in section is with different format , it is good to go with TAB wise tables.

You can have track of filters/format used and will be good for enhancements too.

Hi Sathish!


If your table data is less than 3 pages (2 pages) then new section will start from 3rd page only.

Each table is less than one page actually. But as I wrote the 2-nd section starts from the 2-nd page (what is excellent), but the 3-rd section starts from the 2-nd page as well (right after the 2-nd section), but not from the 3-rd page.


If each table in section is with different format , it is good to go with TAB wise tables.

Could you give any link where I could read about the TAB wise tables? Not sure I am familiar with it.

Thank you!

Andrey

Hi Andrey,

select start from new page and avoid page break for both sections .

TAB is nothing but a report in webi document.
