Hello guys.

My problem is that i want to print a multi page report and i want a different title on each page. the problem is that i am using the "System Parameters - Copies" in order to define the number of copies. which means that the number of copies will be defined while printing. so how can i change the title while the report is been send to the "Print Job" ?

Thanks in advance.

Here's an idea: create a (report) package and package variable which will be used as a page counter. Modify its value in BETWEEN PAGES report trigger and, accordingly to its value, set page title.

That's why you should use a package variable, modify its value and check it in order to display a title. Never mind the fact that the function (a trigger, actually) returns Boolean; you don't really use it anywhere.
