Access 2010 report problem

Posted on 2015-01-06
Last Modified: 2015-01-08
Please see the attached Access database.  It will open a form with December 2014 in a text file and a command button.  The "Go" button runs the queries and open two Reports.

The report titled "qryReport" is the culprit.  It's recordsource is the query titled "qryReport.  The first item in the report is "BLS - Initial" listing 12 Companies and their total for the month.  However if you look in the recordsource query there are 15 Companies.  Those missing from the report have the same total for the month.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Do you have "Hide Duplicates" turned on for any of the field properties in the report?

I believe the problem is that you have what should be in your Detail section inside of a Header instead.  The header is grouping the values of the underlying query together, which is why you're not seeing each actual record.

If you take the two fields that are in the "qryCoTotals.[SumOf# Completed] Header" and move them into the detail section, you will see 15 records for the group in question.

See attached copy of the database file.

Thanks Robert! I thought the problem was in this area but had looked at it so long I could not make sense of it.
