I want to ask you about special ASCII characters used in DataWindow text
object.
I can use "~r~n" signs for new line and carriage return. If I use "~f" for
form feed I get only little square.
What do I do wrong?
What is the difference between "~r~n" and "~f"?
What should I do to feed form?

Thanks in advance

Formfeed is related to printers and paper sizes. What exactly do you expect
to happen by using it? In a GUI environment, it has no real meaning.

I want to feed sheet of paper during print job.
"New page on group change" property is useless in my case because I want to
feed form in the middle of data row.

Beats me how to do this - but there is a much better chance you will get
useful suggestions now that you have provided some useful information.

I'd try to use New Page on Group Break property for this.
Build a group on some dummy column and modify it's value when new page's
needed.

But I can't set two different values into dummy column in one row.
I want to do:
1. Print a form with some data
2. feed a form
3. print another form with some data.
The problem is that data in both forms came from the same row.

Nah, add a subreport that doesn't trail the footer.
Or share different datawindow's from the same row and print them both.
