I need some help with RML. How do I fix the position of the "Total Amount" in the last page of an Invoice?

My use case is this: I need to print Invoices on pre-printed forms. In cases where the Invoice is more than 1 page, the last page contains the "Total Amount". I need to fix the position of the "Total Amount" to a certain position near the bottom of the last page. How do I do this?


Try the drawString element ( More info on page 15 of this manual:http://www.reportlab.com/docs/rml2pdf-userguide.pdf )

Hello Panida, and I had the same case and is solved by creating a new frame example 
<frame id="second" x1="1.5cm" y1="1.0cm" width="18.59cm" height="7.0cm"/> 

and then before putting the total amount you put blockTable tag: <nextFrame/> to take the new frame 

for more information please consult the guide that you indicated Luis Castanheira

Thanks Lercari. I try per your suggestion, it work perfectly if invoice have few items. But I found problem when the invoice has items more than one page. In normal case when the items is over the 1st page, I expect the remaining items shall continue fill in next page and got summary total. But what I found is the remaining items were inserted into the second frame as I use Any idea, why it happen like that, and how to handle when it has items over one page. Thank you for your help.

Thanks, but when I use the drawString element, the Amount is shown on all the pages. I would like to display it only on the last page. How do I do that?
