Jim, thanks for keeping up with this.
<< I think I know the cause...we have 2 sections to the page footer...don't we? >>
Yes. One that has a few text items (signature lines) and a paragraph of legalese that must appear on the first page, and a second that shows the recipient name (Vendor copy, File Copy, etc.) and the page number.
<< Now we have 2 situations
1. where the details are all on page 1 and the terms follow on subsequent pages
2. where details split across 2 pages and then the terms follow on subsequent pages
let me ask you this....If the details split across 2 pages, do you want the footer on the first and second page?? >>
No. What I want to have is the first page footer (PF1) print on the first page only, and have the Second (PF2) print on all pages. If the details spill over from the first to the second page, the page 1 footer should still print on page 1 but not subsequent pages. After the details print, there are about 3 pages of group footer, all one text item (many paragraphs of legalese), that print following the details. It's this group footer that's not reaching the bottom of the page on pages 2+.
<< See...in the Section expert for a given section there are conditions that can apply to the complete section (in this case our Page footer) no matter what (ie. they over ride the subsection conditions sometimes) and then we have conditions that apply to individual subsections themselves
We may have a conflict...or not set them up properly...
Please answer the senarios I mentioned above >>
There you go. Hope what I've written makes sense.
