I have a report that my boss request in a PDF format.


When it is in the PDF format the first page looks fine but the second page has a dark back ground showing. How do I stop that from happening. Why does that happen?

What is the format of the report to begin with?
What are you using to convert this report?

You could save that one as a .jpg and manually lighten it, but it would be easier to alter it from the source material.

Are you using adobe acrobat or reader?

Thanks for your time

I am using adobe acrobat.


I dont understand what you meant about the format. It is a report in access. Now If this helps they are all text fields with code in it.

I need to be able to have my users use this button. I cant have them changing it to a jpg and then lighten it. I had this issue before and all i had to do was change something in the settings in the report. I cant remeber what I did.

Highlight the darkened areas in design view. Change the "Back Color" property (Format Tab) to #ffffff

This should change the cell color to white.Property sheet

It might be an alternate row color, for higher versions of Access.

It would help to know the version of Access and the version of Adobe Acrobat.

In the report settings check the alternating background color.

Make sure that both the Background and alternate background are #ffffff in the Headers, Footers, and details sections.

(I've had Background1 be a different color for each of these fields)

Thanks for taking the time export to give your time to help. I found out the problem the Detail has a alternate background color and it was not Background 1. I change it to that and not all of the backgrounds are now white
