I have a requirement to build a report with three copies of the data appearing on one letter size page.
This is for recipts where I have the Receipt Header with data like the Name of the person, the Receipt number and the date. I can then have multiple lines of receipt details detailing different accounts that receipt might be split up into.
So it might look something like this:
Receipt #: 12345
Date: 27th June 2012
Received from: Frank Cazabon
This will then get printed three times on the page.
Each copy will take up 1/3 of the page height and there is a background image that will get printed in each copy.
Any help will be welcome as I have been struggling with this for far too long.

I'd suggest creating a sub report of the reciept and then have it inside a parent report. That way it will repeat on the parent report each time you have data. Set the height to fit 3 times on the main report (Only have to put sub report on once) and it
should do the trick.
Coding is like life, learn from the past and work towards the future, trying to redo past code, ends in lost time and nothing new accomplished.

Thanks, I've never done a sub-report before but I'll try that and let you know how I get on.

I managed to get some time to try this out today with some success!
Thanks for the suggestion
