Overview of the "End of break" block (Break footer)
The End of break block is an optional block found in the reports created with the report editor. This block is created if a break is requested on a sort argument. The Start of break block necessarily exists if this block exists.
This block is run whenever the value of the sort argument changes, after the last iteration of the Body block for a value of the sort argument. In most cases, it contains the counter or total controls for the records corresponding to the sort argument.
Remark: The Start of break block and the End of break block cannot be dissociated. However, one of these blocks can be made invisible (in the description window of the block or via the Visible property).
For more details on the different options available on this type of block, see Describing the report blocks.
Creating a break block
To create an "End of break" block:
  1. Perform one of the following operations in the report editor:
    • On the "Creation" tab, in the "Structure" group, expand "Blocks".
    • Select "Add a block" from the popup menu of the report (right mouse click on the report currently created).
    • Click the "Add a block" button in the "Blocks" tab of the report description.
  2. Select "Break".
  3. Select the item linked to the break currently created. A break will be created for each new value of this item.
    Remark: To create a programmed break, select "No item". For more details, see Break in a report.
