Vertical Lines In Details Section
The Detail Section has vertical lines which should meet the vertical lines in the Page Header and Page Footer. My problem is that the detail section can contain a variablenumber of records resulting in there being empty space between the last Detail record and Page Footer, and therefore no vertical lines to meet Page Footer.
Would really appreciate guidance on how to extend the Detail Section vertical lines in order to complete the table.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I am currently trying to do this with line objects but, if you've tried this yourself, you will know that it is not easy to get individual vertical line objects to join up to make a nice, seamless box with seamless vertical column lines.
I need to be able join the vertical lines between the Header section, the Detail section & the Footer section so they come out looking like one clean vertical line. Is there a littletrick to this that I'm not aware of? Or are my vertical lines destined to come out as vertical dashes?
I would like to dynamically expand the vertical size of the details section to only show the required space to show all 15 lines in the memo field, so that if I had 3 detail lines as so:
detail line 1,: memo field has 15 carriage returns
detail line 2: has 1 carriage return
the detail section will really only be approximately 16 lines in height not 30.
I need this to print an entry pass like ticket for an event.
The participant comes and tells his membership number, I just enter the number in the search box of the form, and then the form should pull all the necessary details of the participant on to the form.
I want to have tabular columns and rows(horizontal and vertical lines) and place the fields of the database table into different cells of the table for proper alignment and for the rectangular shape of the ticket.
By the bye, how are we refer to a table of horizontal and vertical lines, when we are dealing with issues in Access? Is there a word for it. I mean a non-database table.
Part# Description QTY
The three fields have a grid around it.
My problem is if I only have 4 parts to report the details section shows only four lines and the report has a large blank in it till the page footer.
I want the details section to continue to fill with empty values till it reaches the end of the page. I don't want a report footer.
This way I will have info then empty grids till the page footer
So far I have a counter in the details section (just a running sum txtbox initialized to 1) and am able to switch on/off the section footer visibility using the Footer OnFormat event for PRINT PREVIEW, but I want to be able to do the same inReport View as well, and of course the Section Footer OnFormat event does not fire.
Of course Access 2010 will not let me change the visibility in the Footer OnPaint event.
Bottom line is that I need to toggle on/off the Section Footer visibility in Report View and Printer Preview.
I've never seen this before and can't figure out looking at the text box property how it was set up.
Tried generic HP laser printers as default printer, Update the video driver too.
in other words if 5 there are 5 records, there must 5 lines in the detail section with the relevent information and 9 empty lines.
Then if there are more than 14 records, a 2nd page must print out but in exactly the same way as the first ie: if there is 16 records, the first page must have 14 in the detail section, te2nd page must have 2 lines with the relevant records and 12 empty lines.
