Part 7. Creating Reports > Setting Up the Page

Setting Up the Page

After you open the report you want to modify, open the File menu and choose Page Setup.

The Page Setup dialog box opens. In the Margins tab, change any of the margin settings: Top, Bottom, Left, and Right. (The default value is 1.)

To change page options, click the Page tab.

Select an orientation for the report. If the report contains only a few fields, choose the Portrait option; otherwise, choose Landscape.

INTRODUCTION

In addition to arranging the items and sections of a report, you can make changes to the setup of the page. For example, you can change the margins, select an orientation (landscape or portrait), choose the paper size, and more.


To select a different paper size, click the down arrow next to the Size field and select a size from the list that appears. (Your printer must be able to handle the selected paper size.)

Click OK.

Access returns you to Design view. Click the Save button on the Standard toolbar in the main Access window to save the changes to the report's design.

To see how the page-setup options affect the report, preview it. The preview shown here shows a different top margin, landscape orientation, and legal size paper.
