    Graphic image on labels

    I'm creating labels in Access 2000, and I want to include a graphic image on each label. The finished product will be complimentary passes to be issued to museum employees. The image is the logo for a museum, and I want the logo to appear as a watermark image behind the text. So far I've figured out how to merge the list of names from the database. However, in Design View I can't figure how to get the graphic image to go behind the text. In MS-Word, I can set the graphic to appear behind text, but I can't find a way to do the same thing in Access. Should I run the paper through the printer twice: once to print the image, and then again to print the text? Surely there's an easier way...?

    Re: Graphic image on labels

    While in Design view of the Report, select the Image, then use "Format | Send to Back". This will send the image behind everything else (including the text boxes). You'll want to adjust the image before bringing it into Access because there's not a feature like the "Watermark" feature in Word.
