Lesson 22. Customizing a Report > Working with Objects on Your Report

Working with Objects on Your Report

Working with report objects in Report Design view is exactly the same as working with objects in Form Design view. An object is any control, such as a field name or a title. Turn back to Lesson 14 for the full story, or follow the brief review here:

Selecting objects Just like in Form Design view, you select an object on your report by clicking it. Selection handles (little squares in the corners) appear around it. See Lesson 14 for more details.

Moving objects To move an object, first select it. Then position the mouse pointer over a border so the pointer turns into an open black hand. Then click and drag the object to a new location.

Resizing objects First, select the object. Then position the mouse pointer over one of the selection handles and drag the handle to resize the object.

Formatting text objects Use the Font and Font Size drop-down lists on the toolbar to choose fonts; then use the Bold, Italic, and Underline toolbar buttons to set special attributes.
