Stretched text fields in subreport mess up layout


Recommended Posts

my report is a purchase order with ordered items.

the items's details are in the subreport, which is in the detail band of main report.

i put the total amount in the summary band of main report.

(There are another few lines of terms & conditions in pageFooter band.)


my problem is that when the item details (in subreport) are very long, the text field are stretched. as a result, the summary band is pushed to a new page in very weird manner (the summary band jumped to a new page with just total amount).


My question:

1. Why the space of summary band are not fixed and can be taken up by stretched subreport (even i set subreport to "no stretch").

If i enlarged the text field so that no stretch was required, then the generated report had proper layout.


2. any alternative to display the total in last page following preset layout?
