Graphics on the first Page of Report


I would like to put a bunch of summary graphics on the FIRST page of the report, before dumping of the details. So, for example, let's say I have a bunch of sales figures for a product over a month. On the first page of the report I want to show a couple of graphics (max units by store, max $ by store, that sort of thing), then force a page break, and print the detail report.

Right now I do this using two reports and merging them. That gets messy and it would be far easier (particularly in terms of making changes) if I could do all this in one report.

If you know a clever trick to do this, I would very much appreciate a note.

maybe i'm missing something here...why not use the title band?

Thank you emestoo. This turned out to be a great suggestion. I had actully tried this about 14 months ago but I'd get weird printouts from one of our older printers that, unfortunately, is deployed everywhere. After reading your note, I tried running the old report and this time everything seems to be working. I can only guess that something was fixed in Jasper Server since we try to keep up with updates.

Anyway... THANK YOU for your great suggestion.

You have many options, but i'd recommend using jaspers <break  type="page"> tag, either in the title band or subreport.
