I've been studying the PDF documentation to see how I might achieve the following (but suspect it might not be possible at the moment):

I want to reproduce an existing A4 form which allows a list of exam candidates to be writen in the top section, while the bottom section contains fixed instructions and space for an examiners comments. So effectively I need an OUTPUT2 task to produce the list of candidates, but want the lower half of the form to contain a formatted section (or maybe an image of the formatted section).

Is there a way to achieve this at present? I was looking at the additional data zone functionality, but of course this assumes a DETAIL output rather than a list.

What you want cannot be achieved with a simple LIST view, it can only be done with a DETAIL view with additional MULTI areas. It is still possible to list multiple records in a DETAIL view - if you look at the sample invoice in the EXAMPLE subsystem you will see that this contains an area which can hold any number of invoice items.

Assuming that your database contains an EXAM table which is the parent of CANDIDATE, you will need to access the EXAM object, and within its '_cm_output_multi()' method you need to extract all the CANDIDATES for that EXAM.
