Controlling the Overflow and Relative Positioning of Objects


You may control the overflow and relative (vertical) positioning of reports and graphs in coordinated compound documents. This is done so that reports fill the entire page, as well as maintain their relative position in the document.

Overflow is defined as the area of a report that exceeds its defined space in the page layout. For example, a multi-page report and a graph can both be added to a single page layout with the graph positioned beneath the report. The report can flow or fill the page and the graph can be relatively positioned to the report, so it is placed at the end of the document following the complete rendering of the report.

Overflow and positioning options are available from the Properties window and from the Positioning toolbar in Document Composer.
