MS Access - Overlapping Sub Reports

diana_g asked
Last Modified: 2012-07-12
Hello Experts,

I have a report that is contains 3 subreports, one after the other (see Report - Design View).  I created one subreport and then copied it to create the other two, only changing the Data Record Source and the Caption under Properties.

The subreports can vary in size (height) depending on the amount of data that needs to be displayed.  Typically, if a longer time period is selected, there will be more data for each subreport. (see Report - Good)  So, it should expand vertically and when it is finished, the next subreport should start.

I am experiencing an issue in that when I run the report, the third subreport always overlaps over the second (See Report - Error Overlap).  

Looking for some help as I do not understand why only the third report overlaps.  

Thank you for your help!
