    Question Multiple records per page for Access 2007

    I'm using Access 2007 and I want multiple records per page. I have too many columns for the Tabular format, even in Landscape orientation, so I chose Justified format. But Justified only allows you to have one record per page. What do?

    Never even tried Justified format, had no idea about limitation.

    I have consolidated a wide report by arranging the textboxes as multi-line. Labels are also multi-line in the page header. Then a line control separates the records.

    No sample on hand that I can easily attach here.

    Fairly simple technique. Arrange the textboxes in two lines in the Detail section. Create a line control just below them to define each record. Then arrange the labels in two lines in page header section. If you want, shift the second line of labels and textboxes so they aren't exactly below the previous line. Do any fields have very long strings of text? I think will have to set the CanGrow property of first line of textboxes to No or they might expand over the second line.

    Ah, got it! I was using a wizard instead of creating one manually. Thanks!
