I assume the two "parts" would have similar data (i.e. be pulled from the same Record)? If so, depending on what data you've got to show, and how it must be summed/averaged etc, you could either (a) do this with a single report (everything in the Detail section of one report) or (b) use Subreports. I'd suspect you'll need to use Subreports:

1) Build two subreports that represent each "section" of the overall report - i.e. one for the F&A copy, one for the External copy.
2) Build another report that will hold both of those subreports.

As to your "For Accountants Use" section ... that could be tough to get that to display correctly ... Access likes to fill things from the top down, and if you have no records "above" this, you'll have trouble forcing that to move "down" ...

The stumbling block with these types of reports is that Access can have a tough time duplicating exactly a report similar to a paper Voucher (Invoice, Reciept, Bill, ...ect)
This will be the graphical "Design" of a report like this.

Sum issue can be:
Blocks that span many Detail records.
Can Grow/Shrink properties
Text Wrapping
"Padding" the report with Blank Records
Borders around sections

As any expert here will tell you, you can "Do" anything.
How much trouble you are willing to go through is another story.
;-)

So asking us "How should i do it?", is a bit vague and actually seems like you are asking us to walk you through the entire process.
Is the datebase already complete and fully functioning?
How familiar are you with Report design?

Perhaps you should start by asking a *specific* question about this.
