Microsoft Access - Report - adding more information to one field

Posted on 2014-07-10

I have a report that was auto-generated with Access. One of my fields contains a timekeeper ID. However, the table that holds that info also has a first name and a last name field as well. When looking at the Row Source for this combo box in the report, I have the following query

 Select ELITETimekeeper.ID, ELITETimekeeper.TimeKeeper, ELITETimeKeeper,Lastname, ELITETimeKeeper.Firstname
From ELITETimeKeeper.

The Report shows the ELITETimekeeper.TimeKeeper field, which is just a time keeper number.

I'd love for it to show the last name and first name as well, but I cannot figure out how to do it in the Report. I have it working in the Form, by modifying the Column Count and column width properties, but this does not seem to be working with the Report.

Can anyone help?

In a report, just use text boxes to display the required fields for the record.
