[reportlab-users] newbie question

Hi Folks,

I'm new to using ReportLab.  I have a question which I hope will be easy. 
I'm changing a program to generate a PDF with the same header and footer 
on each page.  What is a good way of doing this?  The program already uses 
SimpleDocTemplate.  I thought, perhaps, one could just do this:

 doc.build(Story, onFirstPage = myFirstPage, onLaterPages = myFirstPage)

Thus, all the pages should use the same function and be formatted as the 
'first' page.  However, that results in the later pages overwriting the 
header on the first page.  You can try this out with the examples.py 
program.  I hope I have explained myself clearly, thanks for help.
