thanks again for all the help with the Verdana TTF problem.
The first version of my PDF report worked fine!

As always there is of course one of these little details left.
My report contains a table with two columns (description, amount) and in 
some cases description is too long for one line. I know that table can 
handle that properly, only in this report the table is not allowed to 
flow, but should be restricted to one page. The remaining rows should be 
The problem doesn't stop there, I need to know what rows are shown to 
calculate the difference between the total amount and the amounts 
displayed with the table.


	desc 1     #1
         desc 2     #2
         desc n     #n

         other     total - sum(#1...#n)

         total     total

Any ideas how to achieve this?
