In the definition of the template, right above the trap entry box, you should see an option that says:
Just increase that line to 2 and it will now trap on the 2nd line.
Hope that helps!
I can’t find how to designate a trap character on the 2nd line of a 2 line trap. What am I missing? /b[/quote]
I have the same problem and question. I'm using Monarch 8.01 pro. There is a report in PDF-format. Other reports are no problem. I was able to get all data we needed.
But this report has Records which are sometimes about 2,3,4,5 or 6 lines. Setting the selector isn't problem. The lines i needed are selected by monarch. But there are also selections, next records selected to.
Data look like this:
Number Typ Name Item Price
000381 A Name 1 Part 1 100.00
004283 A Name 2 Part 1 100.00
004647 A Name 3 Part 1 100.00
Part 2 100.00
Part 4 100.00
234787 A Name 4 Part 2 100.00
Part 3 100.00
427878 B Name 5 Part 1 100.00
Part 3 100.00 /font[/quote]In column "Typ" there are 1 of 3 characters possible. The price is only for example, could be all floating point values.
To extract data (arround 60,000 records) i selected (in this example) the 3 lines starts with "004647". Selector is set like above. Monarch selects the right datasets. But also some sets mit only one or two lines are selected, too. So, if i extract data, some lines are completly wrong, because for example a 2-line-record is mixed with a one-line-record.
So, question is, it's possible to use a selector above more than two lines? For example if i want all records with three of the part-line i'm able to tell monarch, in line 2 and 3 the first character have to be blank to go into the trap.
Or is there an other possibility to select the data i want?
