LB problems.


Is there anybody who can help me?
How Level Breaks work over a data sequence of many fields?
Given a well defined recordset is there any way to forecast where the recordset breaks?
Is there any logical or math method?
Where can I find examples?
Thank You

my only way of dealing with this issue (multiple fields involved in determining level breaks) has been to code my own logic in E.R. and use conditional sections to print sub-totals, headings, etc. Basically just traditional programming (maybe cuz I'm a traditional programmer? ;)

Another "feature" to bear in mind is that, in Xe, it is not possible to make a LBF section conditional, despite what the documentation says. Creating a (conditional) custom section may therefore be your best bet.

Of course, the sequencing and subtotalling parameters should be consistent.
