What you could do is set the height of each table row to some length ie 5mm. You then know how many table rows will appear on each page. Count up the number of rows in the table, calculate the number of rows that will appear on the last page. Insert Y empty rows at the end of the table to pad out the table to fill the page.

Thanks for the quick reply Scott,

I don't think I want to use page footers in this case
(although I'm willing to if they can solve what I want
to do ) - but I understand where you are coming from.

The reason is that the xsl I've written produces
documents that go over a few pages and I wanted to put
a row at the bottom of the last page to show some totals
using table-omit-footer-at-break, but keep the size of
the table consistent on all pages ( otherwise I could
just put an table after the fixed table )

My guess is table-footer is working exactly as intended.

Are you sure you don't want to use a page footer?  Something that always
gets placed at the bottom of a page?  If so, look into using

<fo:root xmlns:fo="";>

                <fo:simple-page-master master-name="example"
margin-top="10mm" margin-bottom="10mm" margin-left="10mm"
margin-right="10mm" page-width="170mm" page-height="170mm">
                        <fo:region-after extent="20mm"/>
                        <fo:region-body margin-bottom="20mm"/>

        <fo:page-sequence master-reference="example">
                <fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-after">
                <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">.....

Subject: table-footer at foot of table problem


Please excuse me if this has already been asked - I've trawled through
the archives and read the FAQ to try to find an answer, but to no avail.

I am using a table with a fixed height, and a table-footer element.
I may be missing something, but I would like to have the footer at
The bottom of the table, rather than after the last table row in the
body section. Does anyone know how I can achieve this?
