[reportlab-users] How to avoid repeat formula on spreadsheet table while using platipus?

You will need to write your own logic to handle this.  Platypus tables
are not spreadsheets and they have no knowledge of whether cell
contents are numeric, so they can't maintain totals; and the are built
"up front" without knowing where they will be broken.    Instead of
creating the entire story and rendering it, it may be better to create
"one-row tables" and add to a frame on the page, or have a routine in
pdfgen to draw one row at a time.  Then you will be in complete
control of how much space is left and when to do page breaks.

To provide more help you'll need to show the group some visuals of
what you are doing.
