I have a report which provides some totals in the report footer.  When I print it, the footer has a grey background.  How can I fix this?  I've tried every property change I can think of.  I've been using Access since before the Rolling Stones heard of it, so it might be old age, but it's not a newbie problem.

Thanks in advance,

Clive

Hi,

The back color is currently set to what?

Should be #FFFFFF for white.

adding on to Jim's comment ...

1. turn on the property sheet if it is not showing (Alt-Enter)
2. click on the footer section bar or in an area of the footer that does not contain a control to select the footer
3. Back color is on the Format tab -- click in that property
4. Click on the Builder button ... to pick from a list of absolute colors
   (clicking the drop-down arrow shows theme colors which may change if the theme is changed)

Thanks for your responses.

It's not the back colour of the footer which is set to #FFFFFF

I discovered by accidient that it occurs at the top of the last page where there are no detail lines on the last page, only the report footer.  I changed the the lenght of the page header and the problem went away.  It might be a bug in Access, otherwise it would be good to fix it.

Note that it's the page header/footer in the subreport.
