Chapter 3. Reports > Create a Page-Range Indicator on Each Page

3.5. Create a Page-Range Indicator on Each Page

3.5.1. Problem

You're creating a report that contains a large number of items. To make it easier to see the range of items on each page, you'd like to create a page-range indicator. This would show the first and last items on the page, as in a telephone book. Is there a way to do this?

3.5.2. Solution

The answer to your question is a qualified yes. You can create such a page-range indicator, but placing it anywhere but in the page footer is difficult. Although you can place it in the page header, the method to do so is quite complex and is the subject of a topic in the Microsoft Access Solutions database (SOLUTIONS.MDB), which shipped with Access 95 and Access 97. You can also download an Access 2000 version of this very useful sample database, called Solutions9.mdb. Search for that name at http://msdn.microsoft.com to find the download.
