Reporting Text Tool Not Working

Hello,

 

I would like to use the text tool, only on the first page as a header of sorts.  I have 14 basic tables union'd together,  a layout tool to make them vertical and then the text tool, header, and render tool.  Here is a high level view:

Here is a close up:

The text however, is showing up before every table.  I need this to act as a title on the first page only.  It's multiple lined so the header is not working.

Hi @jbh1128d1!

 

Thanks for your question.  It was an interesting challenge.  Here's a written description as to how I solved for it:

 

  • After your "1st" page table, insert a REPORT TEXT tool.
    • Configure it to "Attach text to existing field (e.g. TABLE)"
    • Position "above existing object"
  • Continue as you have your workflow

This will put the text on the first page as a header of sorts.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark
