I am creating an Organization Chart using an Access Report to be exported as a PDF.

The report has a Header w/Sub header.  The header consist of the Unit chiefs Name & Title, and Org Name.

The sub Header has the Office Assistants (OA) Name.

My current report is made up of Columns and my current version wants to redisplay the Unit Chief and OA information in the first column - How do I prevent this from being displayed multiple times.

You haven't given us a lot of info, eg the data source of the report and the fields you use in the design of the report.

Have you thought of making the column 1 data field visible=false?

Set the Hide Duplicates property of those fields to True.

I changed what data gets updated into the temp table - which is the source of data for the org chart.  Thanks for the input.

Found solution  - by rewriting the query.
