Chapter 18. Customizing a Report > Working with Controls on Your Report

Working with Controls on Your Report

Working with report controls in Report Design view is the same as working with controls in Form Design view. You might want to turn back to Lesson 11 to review how you manipulate controls and their labels. The following is a brief review:

  • Selecting Controls— Click the control to select it. Selection handles appear around the control.

  • Moving Objects— To move a control, first select it. Next, position the mouse pointer over a border so that the pointer turns into an open hand. Then, click and drag the control to a new location.

    Tip

    Moving Between Report Areas You can't drag a control from one section of the report to another, but if you do need to move it, you can use cut and paste. Select the control (or label) and press Ctrl+X to cut it. Then, click the title of the section where you want to move it and press Ctrl+V to paste it into the newly selected section.


  • Resizing Objects— First, select the object. Then, position the mouse pointer over a selection handle and drag it 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.
