Edit Report Layout - Part 1

Modifying Reports - Remove Report Header

We really get our hands dirty here and will radically alter the report, moving, resizing, removing, and adding (a logo) objects. As well we will control the paging by forcing a new page for each invoice From the Database Window select Reports Select our Invoice report: rptInvoices At the top of the Database Window click Design. HINT: You can also right-click the report and select Design View If the Toolbox (shown above) is not displayed select Toolbox from the View menu. The Toolbox can be dragged to a suitable position. Personal preference is to dock it on the left side of the window. Suit yourself.

Report Header

The Report Header is printed once, at the start of the report. We do not require it each time we print an Invoice so we will remove it. Before we can remove it we need to remove the label and lines in it. Click the label (rptInvoices). The label's handles are displayed Press the DELETE key on your keyboard. At the top of the Database Window click Design. HINT: You can also right-click the report and select Design View Click each of the lines and delete them. HINT: Each line is actually multiple lines. To select the set of lines: Start in a clear area of the report header drag the mouse over a section of the set of lines. As you drag a rectangle shows your progress. Drag into the ReportHeader bar to ensure that you pick up all lines in the set. Drag the top edge of the InvoiceNumber Header up to the Report Header.
