Thanks for your help Mark.

I already have the text from the fields in a variable. I don't want to
restrict the printed page to a certain number of lines, but I want to force
a new page after a particular field has been printed.

Maybe I'm being dumb here.  By the way this is win if it makes any
difference. (well it does explain me being dumb)
