Suppress Undesired Wraps in Tables or Subtables

(combit Team) #1
Valid from List & Label 11
Starting with List & Label 22, two new properties are available to keep groups and subtables together. Select "Keep Group Together" in the group header or "Keep Data Together" in subtables.

For previous List & Label versions from version 11 on, proceed as follows:  Use the following designer function that returns the space left within the current table. You can choose to receive the percentage (default) or SCM value (1/1000 mm) of the remaining table space.
RemainingTableSpace([{Boolean}]) 


You can use this function to trigger conditional page breaks e.g. before group headers or sub tables. Select the table in question in the table structure window and enter a “Page break before” condition. If for example you’d require a page wrap whenever the remaining space is less than 15% (as the header area for the sub table would require at least this space) your page break condition would read:

RemainingTableSpace()<15


In order to keep the header area of an arbitrary sub table together with its data, simply adjust the comparison value as needed.
