Controlling page breaks
Normally, Access fills each page from top to bottom, starting a new page
only when the preceding one is full. You can insert a page break (start a new
page) wherever you want, however. You can add page breaks to a report in
several ways:
After each record (print one page per record): Set the Force New
Page property of the Detail section to Before Section or After
Section. If you choose the Before & After setting for this property,
Access makes sure that only one record is printed on each page. With
the report in Design view, double-click the section name bar at the top
of the Detail section to display the property sheet for the section and
then click the Format tab to see the Force New Page property.
After each group of records: See Chapter 1 of this minibook for details
on grouping records. Set the Force New Page property for the Group
Footer to After Section. Access prints the Group Header section, the
Detail section for each record in the group, and the Group Footer
section; then it starts a new page for the next group of records.
Within a section of your report: Use a page-break control. The Detail
section of the report, for example, may print a packing slip and an
invoice for each order on separate pages. To add a page-break control to
the Detail section of the report, click the Insert Page Break icon in the
Controls group on the Design tab of the Ribbon and then click where
you want the page break to occur. Access puts the page-break control in
the left margin of the report.
