Print report on one page

Hey Guys,

Is there a way to print a Access report on one page? similar to the fit to x pages by y pages in Excel?? I have a report that occassionally goes to two pages and I tried selecting the Can Shrink option to a Yes, but it didnt help (I also have a sub-report as the report footer and I set that to Shrink as well.... I dont know if that makes much of difference).

I don't think that you can do something like the "fit to 1 page" in Access Report like in Excel. You can change the size of your text directly on the Report Design so that it puts more information on one page.

Click on a Can Shrink property on the report and press F1.  It's a good read on what the property does.  No where near what Excel does.  Aside from minimizing margins and making sure all the controls have the Can Shrink property set to yes, that's about the limit.  Access does not scale down the font size to make a report page fit a real page as Excel does.

codysheilds,

You might be able to set something like this in the Printer Properties, but it might not get "Saved" for each time you print this report.


The bottom line is that you must design your report so that it can fit the available area.

Some other tips would be:

Decrease the Margins
Change the Paper Size
Change the page Orientation
Reduce the size on the controls.

Or even a combination of all of the above.

You

Give these a try, and "Report" back.
