Adding Lines to a Report
You’ve used the Line tool to add lines to a form. You can also use the Line tool to add
lines to a report, and you’ll use the Line tool to add a single line above the subtotal con-
trol and a double line above the grand total control.
You’ll switch to Design view to add the lines to the report.
To add lines to the report:
1. Switch to Design view.
2. In the Controls group on the Design tab, click the Line button , position the
pointer’s plus symbol (+) at the upper-left corner of the subtotal text box in the
InvoiceItem Footer section, hold down the Shift key, drag a horizontal line from
left to right, so the end of the line aligns with the upper-right corner of the subto-
tal text box, release the mouse button, and then release the Shift key.
3. Click the grand total text box in the Report Footer section, and then press the
key
four times to move the control down slightly in the section, and then deselect all
controls.
4. In the Controls group on the Design tab, click the Line button , position the
pointer’s plus symbol (+) at the grid dot just above the upper-left corner of the
grand total text box in the Report Footer section, hold down the Shift key, drag a
horizontal line from left to right, so the end of the line aligns with the right edge of
the grand total text box, release the mouse button, and then release the Shift key.
Next, you’ll copy and paste the line in the Report Footer section, and then align the
copied line into position.
5. Right-click the selected line in the Report Footer section, and then click Copy on
the shortcut menu.
6. Right-click the Report Footer section bar, and then click Paste on the shortcut
menu. A copy of the line is pasted in the upper-left corner of the Report Footer
section.
7. Press the key twice to move the copied line down slightly in the section, hold
down the Shift key, click the original line in the Report Footer section to select
both lines, release the Shift key, right-click the copied line, point to Align , and
then click Right . A double line is now positioned above the grand total text box.
8. Save your report changes, switch to Print Preview, and then navigate to the last
page of the report. See Figure 7-28.
