We have a one page contract that we print two copies and on the first page I need to have in the background "Original"  
I know it can be done, just don't remember how.

The best way to handle watermarks in Access reports is in the Printing Preferences of your Printer Driver.  See attached image below.  

There you can set the watermark option, select/enter the watermark and set options for the first page and other pages.

You can put an image on a report by using the Picture property on the Format tab.  You can also stretch it to fit the entire background.  The problem is that you can't control its density so you can make it fade as you can with a Watermark on a Word Doc.  You have to have the image at the right density when you add it.

All of our printers don't have that feature.  I'll try the other suggestion

Using the image method will print the watermark on each page.  You will need two command buttons to print your report ... one with watermark and one without watermark.
