    Unanswered: Display x Numbers or Rows at a time [Resolved]

    I need to show 15 records a one page in a report, also have the sum of that 15 records in each page. Is there any sql command to do that. I am using VB with ADO and ActiveReport as the reporting tool.

    Any help is appriciated.

    Thumbs up

    I was able to produce a report that groups 15 records per page, with subtotals for each group. The requirements are that you have an autonumber field in you table of items you will be reporting, and all items pulled by your query are numbered sequentially (in the autonumber field) starting with 1.

    I based the report on the following 2 queries:

    SELECT Table3.Key, Table3.CUSTNO, Table3.ITEM, Table3.Charge, Int(([KEY]-1)/15)+1 AS Group15
    FROM Table3;

    SELECT Query5.Group15, Query5.CUSTNO, Query5.ITEM, Sum(Query5.Charge) AS [Item Charge]
    FROM Query5 GROUP BY Query5.Group15, Query5.CUSTNO, Query5.ITEM;

    The calculation Int(([KEY]-1)/15)+1 calculates a value from the autonumber field I called KEY; the first 15 items get the value 1, the next 15 get 2...etc., and the report is grouped on this calculated field.

    A small database is attached so you can see how the report, which groups and subtotals every 15 items, was set up.

    Hi Jerry,
    Thanks ever so much for taking the time to answer my question. What you have suggested looks cool, but dont know if it will be full proof though. I my primary key is autonumber but its not sequential as your soloution requires it to be.

    I have found another way of doing it in active report. You can force active reprot to start a new page after x number of recrods (using code). That seems to work for me.

    Thanks again.
