Suppressing Values and NOT Supressing

Suppressing Values and NOT Supressing

Suppressing Values and NOT Supressing

(OP)
I am using the compute code below to supress repeated values on a field which is not a BY field.

The code works great! However, I now face a new challenge.
I need to SHOW the field if it appears on a new page. I suppose this is to duplicate Widows/Orphans from Word?
Can this be done?

COMPUTE FIELD_ABC/A25 = IF FIELD1 NE LAST FIELD1
THEN FIELD1 ELSE ''; AS 'Series'

Thanks,

Leo winky smile  

RE: Suppressing Values and NOT Supressing

You could try setting up a line counter and include it with your compute...

DEFINE FILE XXX
LINECNT/I2 = IF LINECNT GT 55 THEN 1 ELSE LINECNT + 1;
END
....
COMPUTE FIELD_ABC/A25 = IF FIELD1 NE LAST FIELD1 THNE FIELD1
   ELSE IF LINECNT EQ 1 THEN FIELD1 ELSE '';
