Banding

The Banding tab contains properties for banded output of the page. This means that the page is printed repeatedly for each possible value in a specified field.

When the check box Loop Page Over Possible Values in Field is marked, the page will be printed repeatedly while selecting each possible value in the field specified in the drop-down box below. If there are no possible values in the specified field, nothing will be printed. Note that if a selection loop has been specified also on the report level you may face a situation where the report selection excludes all values in the page level loop variable. The page will then be skipped for that report loop value. After completed printing, the original selections will be re-applied. If page numbers are used, these will be continuous over all pages printed.
