MS Access 2010 Reports - Hidden word coming out on subreport

Hi Experts,

I have this report in Access.

I have a Subreport that I am using from other reports and all of them do not have the problem, only the one I am working on

The Sub report has a company logo which this subreport is placed in the Report Header Section of the report.

On my report there is a word that comes out next to the logo that I do not want and it looks like the word is Portrait but I only see it on Print Preview and because of the logo it looks like: trait only shows.

When I try to find it in Design View. I can not find the word.

Any idea's where this is coming from?

Thanks for any help.

Have you selected the logo and done a "send to back" to see if there are any objects sitting behind it?  Could be that you don't see it on screen because the graphic is obscuring it, and printing either shows it do to a difference in dimensions or tranparent areas of the image, etc...

Yes on the logo I just sent to back and still nothing shows.

So let me restate:

In the Design View I do not see the text in question
In the View I do not see the text in question
But
In Print Preview Or when I print the report the hidden text shows.

Please help and thanks

How about drawing a selection rectangle around the area (including the logo) where you are seeing the text.. do you end up with just the logo selected, or do you end up with multiple items selected.   If you're seeing text, there's got to be something there generating it.  

Another idea.. save a backup copy of the report.  Then try deleting just the logo.  Do you still see the text?

I ended up deleting the subreport inside the report and going back and getting the subreport again.  It now looks like the hidden text is gone.

Thanks.

Sometimes that's the best/quickest route when dealing with such an issue.

Question?

Does altering the subreport while inside another report alter the whole subreport for other reports?  Or is it just in that report you are working on?

It alters the subreport for other reports.   I tend to force myself to open the subreport separately when making changes as a reminder to myself that changes made in the subreport are IN the subreport.
