Create Multi Page Letters on one Access Report

I recently posted a question on this.  I have many pages of legal documents that must be combined as one access report.  All of the document pages/reports pull data from the database.

I set up each page as its own report and wanted to combine them all to print as one report.  I got an excellent suggestion to add the individual pages as subreports on one main report.  I tried it with a five page report and it worked great.

Now I am trying the technique for the second time on a nine page report and it's not working great.  When viewed individually all the pages fit onto one page.  When I pull them into the main report as nine subreports, the individual page/reports no longer fit on a single page.  The formatting is all askew starting with the first page, which get broken apart over two pages.

I pull each report in as a subreport, one by one.

It's a mess and can't be delivered as is.  I am wondering if there are any tricks to using this approach?

Any ideas on what the issue might be.

Most likely the formatting options are causing this. When you work with Subreports in this fashion, you must review the options for both the main report as well as each of the subreports. For example, you must be sure that you have set the Keep Together and Force New Page options correctly.

Regarding "formatting" - I'm not sure what you mean by that. If you could show a screenshot, perhaps we could provide you with more suggestions.

Yes, I checked the setup on both and the main report was different on the most recent 9 pager.  When I made it consistent with the way the main report on the 5 pager had been set up it all worked as it should.
Thank you
