    I am trying to create a new report with some images and text and am after some suggestions.

    In the detail section i have an image to the left and a series of text fields to the right.

    The image has a height of approx 100px and the text may be a 50-60 lines long.

    The issue i have is that when the page breaks the image may get cut in half. I have tried setting "keep together" on the detail section and this solves the problem, but i end up with large blank areas if the text won't fit on the page.

    What i would like is for the image to be printed if it fits fully and then split the text over the pages.

    Can this be done?

    Any suggestions welcome.

    I do not think there is any direct way of achieving the results which you expect to get, other than setting the KeepTogether property. However you may want to do something like: If me.control.height + > paperheight then..."Your condition here". You can force the page break through code by saying Me.Detail.NewPage if the above condition is satisfied.
