    Multi-column Region Trap

    George Pjura

      I found the that combining the "multi-column trap", "floating trap" and "vertical boundary"

      features into one model does not capture all the data from the columns.  Seems when Monarch does its page break, the data in all but the first column is missing. 

       

      I am able to capture the data in each column but when doing an append template, the data I need for categorizing the detail is not all the same length and extends between two columns.

       

      Here's an example.  I'm looking to capture the all the "detail" info and reflect it by the "AA...", "BB..." and "CC..." lines.  Problem is the "A" and "C" lines extend two colums.

       

       

      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

      detail01   detail02   detail03  detail04 

      detail05   detail06   detail07  detail08   

       

      BBBBBB

      detail09   detail10   detail11  detail12  

      detail13   detail14   detail15  detail16  

       

      CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC

      detail17   detail18   detail19  detail20  

       

       

      If there is any way to do this without performing multiple steps, please let me know.

          The best way to do this is to create your templates, then in the multi-column region properties, choose the Start After 'Append'

          and Stop At 'Append' Options.

           

          This means the multi column region will only be active between your append templates, so it will not cut into them.

           

          You'll then get a table like this

           

          [font="courier"]AppendAAppendAAppendA  detail01 

          AppendAAppendAAppendA  detail05 

          AppendAAppendAAppendA  detail02 

          AppendAAppendAAppendA  detail06 

          AppendAAppendAAppendA  detail03 

          AppendAAppendAAppendA  detail07 

          AppendAAppendAAppendA  detail04 

          AppendAAppendAAppendA  detail08 

          AppendB                detail09 

          AppendB                detail13 

          AppendB                detail10 

          AppendB                detail14 

          AppendB                detail11 

          AppendB                detail15 

          AppendB                detail12 

          AppendB                detail16 

          AppendCAppendCAppendC  detail17 

          AppendCAppendCAppendC  detail18 

          AppendCAppendCAppendC  detail19 

          AppendCAppendCAppendC  detail20 

          /font[/quote]Note that you will see the boundaries skipping the append template in the report view.

            Gareth,

            Thank you for responding to my note.  I did try what you mentioned but the problem is when the length of the multi-column section is longer than the Monarch page break (that is, when the list of data has the Monarch page break in it).  Here's an example of data with the dotted line representing the page break.

             

            ID: AAA

            NGSA138      NGSA139      NGSA140      NGSA141

            NGSA148      NGSA149      NGSA150      NGSA151

            NGSA158      NGSA159      NGSA160      NGSA161

            NGSA168      NGSA169      NGSA170      NGSA171

            -


             

            NGSA178      NGSA179      NGSA180      NGSA181

            NGSA188      NGSA189      NGSA190      NGSA191

            NGSA198      NGSA199      NGSA200      NGSA201

             

             

            ID: BBBBBBBB

            HMSA000      HMSA001      HMSA002      HMSA003

            HMSA010      HMSA011      HMSA012      HMSA013

            HMSA020      HMSA021      HMSA022      HMSA023

             

             

            All data is selected above the page break but only the first column below the break is selected (for "ID: AAA").  "ID: BBBBBBBB" has all the columns correctly selected.

            Also tried eliminating the Monarch page break but that was required.

             

            Please let me know.

              Try trapping the "ID" data not as an Append Level trap, but as a Page Break trap.  Doing so will make the page break appear above the ID values, and leave the detail values alone.

                I am brand new to Monarch (ver. 7.0 standard) and am having the same problem with a multi column trap.  Could you please tell me what a page break trap is?

                 

                Thanks!

                  Thanks! [/b][/quote]Sorry! I should have said "Page Header" trap.  You just click the Page Header radio button instead of Append.
