Access Report Page Header is not showing up, only the details.

My access Report page header is missing even though I have the details on it.  I checked the page header property and it's set to "yes" on visible option.  Any other suggestions or recommendation to fix this problem.  thanks!

    I'm not sure what you mean by "even though I have the details on it". Does the header show in Design mode? How about Preview mode? What about when your print it?

    What I meant was that the the report shows up without the labels in print preview and also when I print it out.  For example, this is the output I get
    coney Island Hospital     7718-000-0000    21548745    Brookly   NY 11218

    I want to have them labeled as:
    Hospital    Telephone Number   TaxID    County       City    State

    Here are some ideas...
    Have you looked at the Visible property of the labels to see if they are set to Yes?
    Also, is the report only 1 page in length? If so, look at the Format tab of the Report itself to see if the Page Header is set to something other than All Pages (e.g. it might be set to Not with Rpt Hdr) since that would suppress the page header from appearing/printing on 1 page reports.
    Lastly, look to see if there is any VBA code that might be changing the visibility of the page header to No.

    I appreciate all you guys help, but I found the solution.  I realized that on the report page veiw, when I clicked "File- page setup- Margin Tab -Print Data Only option needs to be checked off.
