Hello:
Does anyone know of a way to insert a page break in a text file that is being generated by a java program so that when that file is opened in word, each piece of information gets printed on a separate page.
Many Thanks,
Shital Kapadia

Hi Shital,
'\014' is a escape character for page break. Hence you can use the same to get the page break. I have written a sample programe. Run the same redirecting output to a file. that is use the following command after compiling
java PageBreak > text.txt
and open the test.txt in MS-word you will get what you wanted.
public class PageBreak
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
System.out.println("First Page");
System.out.println( "\014" );
System.out.println( "Second Page");
}
}
