    Template error - page break ?

    Reinhard _



      I'm using V4.02 and have a very big report file (80 MB) to analyze. I've created a header template which works correct, but the 2-line detail template brings up some unexplainable errors. Sometimes Monarch brings up an extra line which is not in my file when I open it with the txt-Editor. This extra line contains many "-" and interrupts the selection of details and so for the next 2 lines the header template is used which doesn't match to my selection options.


      So a great number of datasets are generated wrongly. I've tried every data entry option available but the error is still there.


      Can anyone help ?

          Monarch will enforce a page break every 256 lines if no page break is defined for less than 256 lines. Have a look at the OPTIONS for INPUT.


          If you can define a page break that will work but has less the 256 lines you might be OK.


          However if you have only a REPORT header section and no repeating PAGE header I think you should define your Report Header template as an APPEND template but NOT a Page Header Template.


          Unfortunately I do not have Version 4 installation available to check it.


          If you set up a Page Header template the system will expect to apply that template every time a page changes accoring to the template definition, a new page identifier or the 256 line limit being reached. From your description I think that is what may be happening with your report.


          If that does not help let us know what problems it leaves for you and we can think again.

            Hello Grant,


            many thanks. I've read several postings about the page break problem but your idea making an APPEND was the solution.


            Many thanks.
