Abstract

A technique that is often used when printing documents is to have a heading that prints at the top of each page. These headings are especially useful for printing column headings on tables of data that exceed one page in length. The IBM program product "Document Composi (Image Omitted) tion Facility" provides this function using a technique that is referred to as running headings. Running headings allow the user to define one or more lines of text that are to be printed at the top of each page. During print processing the running heading lines are printed at the top of each page. One problem that exists with this implementation of running headings is that the headings always must start printing at the top of a page.
