Report question - Keeping text on the first page

Hi all,

I have a report with a subreport in it.  If not all the information fits on one page it currently moves to a second page.  Is there anyway to break up the text so as much of it as possible appears on the first page and the rest goes on the second?

Regards

Chris

Generally that's what Access do - put as much as possible on the first page, and the remainder on the second. Is that not happening with yours?

If not, then remember that you're actually working with 2 reports - the Main report, and the Subreport. Formatting options set in one report can affect the layout of the other. In this case, since it would seem the text you're concerned with is contained in the subreport, you are probably better off trying out the options in the subreport first.

There are quite a few options available for formatting. Click the Detail section of your report, then review the various items in the Format tab of the Properties dialog.

If your report is Grouped, the GroupHeader/Footer will also have these options. In fact, EVERY section of a report has options like Force New Page, Keep Together, etc.

Could be a number of settings ..
Try right clicking on the section bar at the top of the section that holds the subreport, and displaying the section properties.
See if KeepTogether is set to yes - if so change it it to No.
