I am using Infomaker 6.0. I have a report that when it is printed the
group
break information prints on the next page. The problem is that when
Informaker starts the next page it prints the header information and
then one
detail line, then it seems like it's doing a control break and printing
3
blank lines, after that is the next group break data. Is there a way
that I
can control the number of lines on a page? For example, if I only wanted
50
lines printed on a page and have the group break information repeated on
the
top of the next page (following the header lines )?

To break based on a fixed number of lines, you need to create a computed
field to count the rows.
dummy = int ( (getrow() - 1) / 50 )
Now create a group based on the field dummy. It will break every 50 rows.
