Creating and Managing Report Sections
of the entire
report or of
To see or change the properties of a particular section, double-click the
section header, or select the section header and click the Property Sheet button
in the Tools group on the Design tab of the Ribbon. When the property sheet
is visible, you can click a section header or control to see its properties.
You can display or hide the property sheet quickly by pressing Alt+Enter.
Adding page headers, footers, and numbers
To add Report or Page Header or Footer sections, right-click anywhere in
the report in Design view and choose Report Header/Footer or Page Header/
Footer from the contextual menu. Access adds these sections in pairs: If you
have a page header, you have a page footer. You can leave one or the other
section blank, though. To delete a Report or Page Header or Footer section,
choose the same command again: Access deletes the Header/Footer pair and
all the controls in the sections (after warning you that it’s about to do so).
If you want just a header or just a footer, change the height of the section
that you don’t want to appear by dragging the bottom border of the section
up to the top border. The header or footer is still there, but you’ve shrunk it
to nothing, so nothing prints.
You can’t do this, of course, if you have something in the section, such as a
control. Be sure that a section is empty before you try to hide it by dragging
the bottom border up to the top border.
