Aligning and Formatting Controls and Adjusting Line Spacing

The exact alignment of label and text box controls is more important on reports than it is on forms because in the printed report any misalignment is obvious. Formatting the controls further improves the report’s appearance and readability.

The spacing of the report’s rows in the Detail section is controlled by the section’s depth. Likewise, you can control the whitespace above and below the headers and footers by adjusting the depth of their sections and the vertical position of the controls within the sections. To create a professional-looking report, you must adjust the controls’ alignment and formatting as well as the sections’ line spacing.
