    How to hide the page header on the first page of the form

    I am a new Access user and I am creating a form where I have a form header which has the initial information for the first page with a logo in the left corner. Second I have a page header which should display the column headings of the form as well as some text on the top of each page. However I want to hide the page header from the very first page of the form but I cant seem to find a way to do it.

    Can anyone help me?

    Forms don't have pages, they are one continuous display - is this a report? Or are you printing the form (not a good idea)?

    I think that is the main problem. I want to print it and I should be making a report. Basically I have an excel database for which each row contains a Serial number, description, qty and image of an item. These I need to display in a specific format for which I thought I would need to create a form.

    Actually, form does have Page header/footer sections but they only display when form is printed, not when on screen. Forms are intended for screen display and reports for printing. Each can be made do the other but not as well. In a report the page header/footer can be suppressed on first page when form header/footer displays. This setting is not available on form.

    What you want is easily done with a report. Report have much more power features than forms for printing.

    What you need to use is the Report Header for page one (1). Next set the report property for Page Header to NOT print with the Report Header.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
