I have an access(2000) report which is laid out like an invoice. Header / Detail / Footer.

Is it possible to fill the background of the detail section with an image ?

If so, how ?

Any image you insert is for the entire report, not just the detail section.

Maybe I am misunderstanding the question here, but couldn't you just Insert/Picture in the detail secion, then do Format/Send to Back???

I inserted a picture  on the report. There is no option to 'send to back' in Properties/Format.

Do you know of another way ?

Sorry I had misunderstood you eariler.  Was a long day!  Once you place the image on the report, keep it selected and go to 'Format' - 'Send to Back'.

Keep in mid, the detal section size will vary depending on the amount of data in it, so you'll want to mess about with the pictures properties a bit to get the settings that are the most acceptable.

Nope, I don't know of another way, but as 1William said, if you have the picture selected, then there most definitely should be a Send to Back option in the Format menu.  Are the options there in the menu at all (i.e. were they just grayed out??).  If they weren't even there (even when you expand your menu options), then go to View/Toolbars/Customize, to the Commands Tab, look in the Form/Report Design category, then scroll down until you see the Send to Back option and either add it to a toolbar or but it back in your Format Menu.
