Page Breaks in BI/XML Publisher Reports

To create a page break after the occurrence of a specific element use the page break before ending group 

"split-by-page-break" form field within the group immediately before the <?end for-each?> tag that closes the group as shown below. 

Business Requirement:

  Sometimes business wants supplier needs to start freshly from the starting of the page to send hard copy of different suppliers we can use page break before ending of the main group  

Page Break Syntax:



<xsl:attribute name="break-before">page</xsl:attribute>

Sample XML Tags:

<?XML TAG1?>
<?XML TAG2?>
<?end for-each?>
