    Split a Page table across multiple pages while printing along with heading

    Hi all,
    I am printing a page with tables made up of div's using the ID by separate JavaScript function by passing the div's Id as Parameter to that function. What happens was , when we see the printed document, the rows of table are split across pages and data is half printed on each of them. the end row is splitted and it looks awkward. I need a way to split the row either to completely include in a page or to be split to next page. Along with that I need to print the heading of the table before the starting row of the next page as it would be easier for the reader to check upon what column corresponds to what data.
    For more clarity I have posted here my JavaScript code which prints the div based upon its ID.
    function printdiv(printarea)
    var headstr = "<html><head><title></title></head><body>";
    var footstr = "</body>";
    var newstr = document.getElementById(printarea).innerHTML;
    var oldstr = document.body.innerHTML;
    document.body.innerHTML = headstr+newstr+footstr;
    document.body.innerHTML = oldstr;
    return false;
    Please help if anyone has a solution for this

    I did that, and it is not easy. I did not use javasript I set up 2 style sheets something like
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mainStylesScreen.css" media="screen" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="MainStylesPrint.css" media="printer">
    which was div PrintOnly defined, so it has display:none in mainStylesScreen.css and what ever you need in MainStylesPrint.css
    and the opposite div DisplayOnly
    So you build your page and insert divisions in order you need and in PrintOnly div use {page-break-after:always}
    it is easy part. Complicated part is calculate in asp page size and where dynamically insert that div's. Remember on page break you need close table before page-break-after:always and open on new page...
