I have a report that is made up of two tables. Each table is bound to a different data set. The second table sometimes spills onto two pages. Is there anyway I can repeat the first table on the second page?

I tried inserting the first table into a header cell on the second table, but it seems that you can't have a table within a table.

I do have the two tables together in a grid, but I don't see a way to repeat the entire grid on the next page.

Any ideas would be must appreciated!

Thanks!

You could try grouping the second table on a field that only has one value. If you don't have a field like that, you could create a computed field with a static value for the expression, so you can group on it and only get the one group. Then, put the first table in the group header that is created. This should allow the first table to repeat, if the second table spills to another page. Let me know if you have questions or issues.

Hi,

That works, thank you! I was trying to insert the table into the overall table header (not the group header). Thank you for taking the time!
