[reportlab-users] Dynamic Tables

Hope this helps a little...

I am hoping to create an invoice template that can be used over and over
repeatable. I was looking around online, and found that the flowable
element paragraph can accept certain XML tags. I have yet to see an
example of the <table> tag being one of them. Is there an example of
this anywhere that you know of?

I'm not sure what you mean. There's really no such thing as a "static
table". The Table class just takes strings. You can send string
constants, or you can send your data as a string. There's no difference

in usage. You just build up a list of lists and hand it to the Table
class constructor.

Perhaps you could post an example of what you are looking for.
