Part 7. Creating Reports > Resizing a Report Control

Resizing a Report Control

To change the size of a report section, place the mouse pointer on the section's border, click, and drag.

The report section is resized.

To resize a label, click it to select it, and then drag one of the sizing handles (any black box except for the bigger box in the upper-left corner) until the label is the size you want.

INTRODUCTION

If the contents of a field name or field entry are not completely displayed in a report, you can resize the control, be it the field's label control, text box control, or both. In addition, you can resize sections or the entire report as needed to make room.


TIP

Using the Big Selection Handle

The bigger box you see when you select a control is used for moving the control. See the next task for information on moving.


The label is resized (here, made larger).

To resize a text field, click it to select it, and then drag one of the sizing handles (any black box except for the bigger box in the upper-left corner) until the text field is the size you want.

The text field control is resized (here, made smaller).

Click the Save button on the Standard toolbar in the main Access window to save the change to the report.
