    Forcing Page Breaks (2000/XP)

    I have a report that for 1 unique set of data is 4 pages long. It is all the data relative to a job that the client is working on and what they would like to do is print out a specific job (4 pages). I am trying to force a page break at certain points in the data so that logical pieces of data stay together but where there appears to be no natural (grouping) break - rather like "Insert Break" in MS Word. Is there any way to do this in Access?

    A report is really nothing like a Word document, so I'm afraid there is no Access equivalent to what you're looking for. You can use page breaks, but since you don't know ahead of time what data will occur in the detail section, that can be problematic. The usual way to handle this kind of thing in Access is by using the Setting and Grouping dialog in the report's design view. That will allow you to create group headers or footers and to control whether a new new page is started before or after a section.

    Just thought I would let you know that in this case the only answer was to create 4 separate reports and calculate the page numbers so that they ran consecutively. The client only ever prints 1 job at a time so this works just fine.
