    Multiple Line Trapping Criteria

    bethgordon _

      I am using Monarch Pro 10.   I am trying to capture the "Instructional" line toward the bottom of the report.  However, the trap is pulling all of the instructional lines.  I noticed that the instructional line I want has a blank line above it and below it.  I tried to trap three lines with the first and third lines being blank and the "Instructional" in the second line, but it didn’t work.  If anyone has any ideas on how to achieve this, I would really appreciate it.  Many thanks!

          Hi Beth, and welcome to the Monarch forum.


          If I understand this properly, you're looking to capture the single record with the FTE value of 221.745.


          Here's how I did it.


          Make a two line detail template sample with the Instructional word on the second, so that the first line is blank.


          Use "instructional" as your trap characters, without the quotes of course, and set the Trap Line value to 2 from the default of 1.


          Paint a field on line 1 of the sample where it's blank and name this Category.  Paint each of your values in line 2, and on the Advanced tab, set the Preceeding string in the current line to instructional.


          That's it. OK the template definition.


          Now in the Table window, to isolate the only record that you want, create a filter with the formula:
