: After a bit of experimentation, I discovered that by simply putting a Form Feed character (Octal 014) at the beginning of the heading text, RichText does in fact translate it to a "\page" appropriately.

: This is, to my knowledge, undocumented. I hope others might find this as interesting as I do. It greatly simplifies my task of doing a reasonable job of pagination for my reports.

Thanks for the info, it is indeed undocumented. Very nice find!

The RichEdit component seems to have more possibilities after all. We'll do some experiments with embedding printing codes in it and we'll wrap it up in a tutorial next week.

Thanks again!
