Number of pages has nothing to do with the NODATA character so there must be something else going on. Once the SET NODATA=' ' is set, it's valid for the entire report.

The concept of "pages" in HTML isn't really there. Are you using On-Demand paging and seeing this?

Hi darin,
i used SET NODATA=' ',But some how its displaying correctly in the first page which gets after i run the report,once i navigate from the report output to page 2 or any other page i am getting the missing parameter '. ',which i want o get rid off.

i am using a report with pagination kind i.e; i have links for 1-12 pages in the report output.

i am surprised to see why the "Set Nodata" is being passed to the page which come after i run only,why not to other pages.?

When you say you have links to the pages, what are the links doing? Re-running the report and getting page two? Links to static pages? Still not quite sure what you are doing.

Try ON TABLE SET NODATA '' instead of SET NODATA=''
I think, only for the first page, fex with SET NODATA command was included. For the consecutive calls that fex might be bypassed.

So try this way,
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM SALES BY COUNTRY ACROSS SEATS
ON TABLE SET NODATA ''
END
