Inserting Page Breaks when Printing Reports

Sometimes we have to create reports that are HTML based. Of course HTML is not conducive to formatted pages when being printed. You can, however, format the output using a combination of CSS code and DIV tags. This will then insert page breaks when the report is sent to the printer. Please be advised, that these page breaks will not be visible on the screen, but will be visible is you do a print preview.

In the CSS of the document or attached CSS add the following:

div.pagebreak {
page-break-after: always;

In the body of the document where you want to place the page break at the following:

<div class="pagebreak"> </div>

This will create a page break when the pages are printed.
