How can I remove the blank page at the end of my output?

Overview

You may find that when you output your report or document, there is a blank page at the end. Here are some solutions!

Resolution for Word

This can happen for a number of different reasons.

 

It may happen when you insert a Microsoft Word page break in your forEach loop so that each iteration of your loop starts on a new page. Instead of using a page break, select your beginning ForEach Tag and change the paragraph settings to Page Break Before.

  1. Click the paragraph that you want to follow the page break.

  2. On the Page Layout tab, click the Paragraph Dialog Box Launcher, and then click the Line and Page Breaks tab.

  3. Select the Page break before check box.

 

Other possible reasons are:

  • You may have a page or section break inserted at the end of your document that you no longer need, or didn't realize was there. In your Windows options, choose to Show Formatting and check for unneeded breaks.
  • You may have an Out Tag or Import Tag at the end of your document which has been changed in the Tag Editor to include a section break. Open that tag and navigate to the properties section to change the feature.

Resolution for Excel

This may happen for a number of reasons. In addition to the possibilities mentioned above for Word, there is an additional possibility inherent to Excel.

  • If you are only using 1 sheet in your spreadsheet, but there are additional unused tabs (Sheet 2, Sheet3, etc.), those additional tabs will be included in your final document as blank pages. Simply delete any unused sheets and Output normally.
