Report - Page Header (copy to Group Header)


How can I copy the current page header to the group header?   I have Access 2010.  I remember a certain way to do this but have forgot.  I want to use the built in control and not simply copy and paste (I know I can do it that way).   I thought I could right click the page header and find a property or tick mark or something that would allow me to "copy" the page header to the group header.

thank you

Not quite sure what you are asking for here - but to copy an entire section like this I typically:

- Click at the top left hand side of the section (on the form's border works)
- Drag the mouse to the bottom of the section
- Release the mouse... all controls are selected at this point.
- Ctrl-c to copy
- Click on the bar over the section I want to copy to in order to select it
- Ctrl-V to paste

This copies all controls from one section to the other, keeping the layout intact and identical and selected as a group so that I can fine tune the placement of the group of controls as a whole.

The placement of Group and Page headers may depend on the layout of the report you select when you create it.

There is, however,  a "Repeat Section" property of the group header that will allow it to repeat for each page, if the data spans more than one page.  Perhaps this what you are after?

that was an easy way.  I did not know you could click on the bar.   i had thought there was a different way but it works.  

sorry for late response....been swamped in my real job.

boag:  I was a little familiar with the repeat section for each page but it wasnt what I was looking for as I did not need to repeat on each page (i have this already)

thank you.
