Hi,
I am using pod (version 0.6.0, great tool !!) to generate odt file with complex nested tables
In the result file (odt file) the data are truncated (the last page is blank). If I modifiy the bottom margin (of the page) to 0 inch the datas appears complete !!
Do you know why ?

Hi,
I don't know why. What I know is that OpenOffice behaviour becomes approximative with complex nested tables.
If, in your table structure, you have tables that were there only for adding a POD statement (note), you can tell POD to remove the table from the result (write "do table- if/for" instead of "do table if/for", so add sign "minus" after "table".
Does it help ?
Cheers

Thanks for your answer.
Unfortunatly my tables have more than one cells so I can't use the table- solution. I 'm going to try to simplify the structure of my table

Note that the first level can be a section ("section-" works), and then tables and sub-tables...
Also: every table has properties in OpenOffice. Be sure that your tables can span several pages, be split, ...

I have already check the tables properties.

What's the advantage to put a section at the top level ?

What i need and try is :

------------------------------------------------------------|
  Header table 1 |
         Header table 2 |
                  table3 table4 |
                   cell cell |
                   cell cell |
                   cell |
------------------------------------------------------------

Can you help with this problem?
