Combining Nodes

Use

The more extensive a form, the less clear the node hierarchy in the tree structure. To avoid this, you can combine related nodes under a folder node. When displaying tables, you can use the folder node to protect multiple table lines against automatic page break (see: Page Protection for Tables).

Nodes assigned to cells of a template can be identified more easily in the tree structure if there is a folder for each line or column.

Depending on the length of time by which the last date for payment has been exceeded, each dunning letter should start with a different introduction. Create a text node containing the relevant dunning letter for each dunning level and specify conditions to print only one of the nodes. In this case, it is a good idea to group the different text nodes together in a folder.

Procedure

  1. Create a node of type Folder in the navigation tree of the Form Builder.
  2. Enter a unique name for the node and a description (for example, cells of the third line).
  3. To assign other nodes to the folder, use Drag&Drop to put them in the folder node or insert new nodes as subnodes.

On the Events tab, you can activate a header and a footer area. For more information, see Printing Tables.
