I have a report which prints information relating to a Stock Record. Generally speaking, the report header occupies about a third of the first page, then the repeating detail section can contain any number of photos which are printed also. ie 1 photo per record in the detail section. I have deliberately sized the picture control so the height is just under a half of the page height. So under normal circumstances, we get the header and first photo on page 1, and then pairs of photos on subsequent pages. The picture is not a bound control. The detail section contains a hidden bound text box control. This text box contains the path to the image file. Then in the OnFormat event of the report, I set the picture to display the required image.

However, there is a subreport in the header section which means that the report header can grow in height. If the report header grows to more than half the height of the page I would expect that the first photo should jump down onto the second page. But what actually happens is that Access prints part of the photo on page 1 and the remainder of the photo on page 2. I have got the Keep Together property of the detail section set to true.

So how can I stop this photo from spanning 2 pages?
