Overflow header - Subform table


i have a strange problem but could not find a right information.

There are 2 master pages in the form. I have created a subform table called "TABLE" (Role "TABLE", and flow layout). Overflow here is "CONTENT_2" (Content area of the second master page). Overflow Leader "HEAD"

Within the subform there are 2 more subforms "HEAD" (Role "Header Row") and "BODY" (Role "Body Row"). Both with flow layout but "Western Text"

My problem now is: The head data is printed in the second page BUT all fields from the head are left aligned and completely overwritten. Also the content from the body row which should start after the printed head overwrites the header line.


Header Page 1

Header Page 2

Do you know any solution for this?

Best regards,

Hello Philip,

1st issue - All the fields from the head are left aligned and completely overwritten in the second page.

---> This is because the HEAD sub form is of type "Flowed". Make the HEAD sub form as type "Positioned". And then you need to position all the fields one beside the other and this issue will be resolved. Always remember that the overflow leader sub form should be of type "Positioned" to avoid such problem.

2nd issue - Even the content from the body row overwrites the header line.

---> You have not shown any screenshots of the sub form properties which appears on the right hand side in the layout. But hopefully I think the 2nd issue by itself will get fixed once you fix the 1st issue. Well even if it doesn't, then this issue might be occurring because the TABLE sub form is "flowed with western text". Make it as "flowed with top to bottom". And also remove the check "Allow page breaks within content" from BODY sub form. Then this issue will be resolved.
