You can cause ActiveReports to break to a new page at any point within any section using the PageBreak control. All controls placed below the PageBreak in the section render to a new page.

Caution: It is not recommended to place PageReport control over other controls as it can cause extra page breaks.

Tip: Another way to cause ActiveReports to break to a new page is by setting the NewPage property of a section to Before, After, or BeforeAfter. This property is available on any section except for PageHeader and PageFooter.

PageBreak Dialog

With the control selected on the report, in the Commands section at the bottom of the Properties window, you can click the Property dialog command to open the dialog.


Name: Enter a name for the PageBreak that is unique within the report. This name is displayed in the Document Outline and in XML exports. You can only use underscore (_) as a special character in the Name field. Other special characters such as period (.), space ( ), forward slash (/), back slash (\), exclamation (!), and hyphen (-) are not supported.
