this a re-post of my 11/24/2012 post on FoxyPreviewer. let me know if the latest zip file contains enough simple coding to understand the issues encountered by me. thanks.

Using Foxypreview Preview, the page number (_pageno) of the "Quotation" report is 2 and the second report "Terms and Conditions" is numbered page 1. for PDF output the "quotation report starts with page 4 and the "Terms and Conditions" report appears three times as page 1, 2 and 3.

here is a simplified sample of the issues - page numbering and loss of last line of text from a memo field and the addition of "..." at end of same memo field text.

my apologies for the delay.
