    Louis - To print a sub-set of all of the records in a table, you need to embed a multi-record layout in the print format itself.  Once that has been done, you will apply a filter to the field that you want to use to determine which records are included in the printout.

    The easiest way to do this is the create an empty table to serve as the parent of the table that actually contains the records (content) you wish to print.  You can do this by linking the child table to the parent by adding a link in the child table out to the parent and making that link a composition.

    Once you've done this, you can open a blank record in the parent and, from there, go into the print layout editor.  As the parent table will have no fields except the incoming link from the child, all you will see in the body of the report format is a multi-record listing.  Edit the fields in this listing to include the content you want to print and, for the filter field, specify the conditions (filter) that a record must meet in order to be included in the printout.

    This mechanism will enable you to print a sub-set of records from within a table.

    This is quite complicated for just trying to get a quick listing of a few files... Probably a lot easier to do a screen shot!

    Hi Louis, 

    You can also use a view of that table and filter for your records you want to print or ceck them on the left edge of the table view. 

    If you then print with the botton "Print table view" (in the middle above the table) or the print editor (the printer sign and choose there "All" to print) Ninox will print only the records that are shown in the view.

    Best, Jörg

    Thanks you Jorg!  It took me several tries and I had to use the filter.. I could not get it to print just with the check on the left side... THAT would be really helpful because I need to print lists of certain competitors but not based on just one or two filters.  I appreciate your taking the time to respond... I am now just less than 24 hours of having to have this data base ready for competitors to start the check in.. I doubt I'll have time to deal with other issues now, but I will use this contact option again... BTW my name is Louisa...

    Dear Louisa, 

    I missed to mention that you should right-click in the table and and choose the option "Show selction" after you have checked the rows on the left side... then you will get only printed what you see in the view.

    Best, Jörg

    Actually I work on a Mac so I don't have/use  the right click option so I evidently did something else and it worked
