I have a document that is at minimum 2 pages and could be as long as 20 pages or more. Page 1 is always standard with some text, boxes, and data selections. Page 2 has rows and columns of data where I use a repeat and overflow condition of &iterationcount=60.

If my data carries over past 60 lines, I want it to begin a page 3 (which it does do) but without regenerating page 1 as well.

So if my data is long enough to generate 5 pages of data, my document looks like this:

Page 1
Page 2
Page 1
Page 3 (overflow data)
Page 1
Page 4 (overflow data)
Page 1
Page 5 (overflow data)

I want it to be:

Page 1
Page 2
Page 3 (overflow data)
Page 4 (overflow data)
Page 5 (overflow data)

A practical example might be your cell phone bill with an itemized list of calls. Your page 1 shows what you owe, but pages 2 through whatever lists all your calls. Can this be done?

Dustin,

Using the overflow method should not cause the first page to reappear between each overflow. Please open a web support ticket and attach your PlanetPress Design document and we will take a look at it. You can do so on this page:
