How I accomplished this

by BoyMackman In reply to HTML page format for prin ...

We have an application that requires printing onto A5 paper, to this printed the data and determined (guessed) how many rows of data we could get on one page.

We then inserted the Header and footer after and before the required amount of rows.

It isn't 100% and there are times when it doesn't work but we have over 400 uses of this application and I have seen it not work twice! There are times where it doesn't fill all of the page but only twice has it spilled over.

Hope this helps.
