Tip : Move the entire row to next page when one or more text fields data overflows to next page

Hi,

Usually, Clients needs data to be displayed neatly at server UI level though it would be an excel extract or pdf extract.

This tip is useful when report text fields data overflows to next page with wired look and feel.

Solution : 
1) Remove "Detail Over flow" option for all the text elements that are kept on detail band if  the property is already applied.
2) Select the detail band and look into the properties of it.

    Chose Split Type = Prevent instead Stretch

Split type property specifies the band behavior to split the data.  

This will solve the data over flow problem and there would be no half text displayed in page and remaining text will be displayed in next page rather the entire row will be pushed to the new page.
