Default Looping

I have a table that is defined in % for width, with no definition for height. It is composed of 3 parts that can vary in height depending on how much information is populated. The third part will be lines (notebook paper style) that should take up the space not taken up by the first two parts.

The issue I am having is how to tell how much space is left on the page for the lines so that I can base my loop on that. Any suggestions? Thanks.

There tend to be two general approaches to this kind of problem. One is to do an absolute computation - something that examines the data and works out how much space is occupied by the first N rows starting at X. The other is incremental, you recursively process the rows keeping a running total as you proceed. Neither is especially easy, I'm afraid.
