Otherwise, SKIP statements are ignored at the end of the last page.

Example

The statement
REPORT TEST NO STANDARD PAGE HEADING. DATA: ROW TYPE I VALUE 3. WRITE 'Line 1'. SKIP TO LINE 5. WRITE 'Line 5'. SKIP TO LINE ROW WRITE 'Line 3'.
produces the following output:

Line 1

Line 3

Line 5

Note

The statement SKIP TO LINE lin is executed only if the contents of lin lie between 1 and the maximum number of lines per page (see NEW-PAGE LINE-COUNT ).
