Page Break in Act Reports

I have a modified Notes/History report - with the company & contact name on a line, with a subreport for history. Unfortunately, a page break gets inserted between the company & contact name and history when it gets to the bottom of a page. I've tried checking/unchecking the "allow section to break across pages" - that doesn't seem to affect anything for this particular issue.

 

Is there a way to prevent a page break between the detail and subreport in a print out?

 

thank you.

No direct method and in the case of your report, most likely none. If the report information was always a consistent number of lines, there are formatting tricks to avoid orphan lines. I can think of one possible trick that might work but I've never tested it.

Re: Page Break in Act Reports

thank you Roy, I didn't think there was a way to do it, but thought I'd ask (I was hoping for something kind of like in Word, where you can keep paragraphs together)
