I am working on some reports where I want to have multiple pages around 8 pages in single report. Since the report has lots static text (about 80 %) of report, i am unable to create such report with multiple pages. I know jasper creates multiple pages dynamically from the data source available. but since i have lots of static text how can i do this?????
Please guys help me out..
Thanks in advance.
Can you explain it a little more?
I don't see in what way static text is an obstacle. Do you mean you have a lot of section and headers inside report? Then you should use groups or possibly subreports.
Please claryfy your question
If you use a recent version of JasperReports, note that the detail section is now a multi-band section. Basically, you can have 8 detail bands inside the report. Each of them probably as big as one page.
Then, you just fill the report with an instance of the JREmptyDataSource (one single empty record).
I hope this helps.
