Hi, I think this should be easy but I can't seem to think my way round it. In our invoice data we have a couple of pages at the front which aren't printed. Date starts on page 3.

One page contains a line that we'd like to read in the design, store and use on other pages.

So an example we only want to read a line on page 2 that might contain "01" or "02" etc in a certain position eg; =@(5,7,10). How can I store this and then use it on other pages of data.

Thanks

On each of the pages of your form, set the following condition:
Code:
   =&current.datapage>2

This will ensure that no page gets printed for data pages 1 and 2.

To store a reusable value found on page 1, create a metadata field named MyValue and set its level to Document. Then, set its value to the appropriate data selection and the condition for that value to:
Code:
   =&current.datapage=1


Then you can use that metadata field value anywhere in subsequent pages by using a custom data selection set to:
Code:
  =GetMeta('MyValue[0]', 0, 'Job.Group.Document')
