    Keep together (Access XP)

    I have a report that shows Purchase Orders and Parts, the Purchase Order has a Group header while the Parts are shown in the Detail section. All straight forward at this stage. I need to keep the Purchase Order group header on the same page as the Parts. What I am finding is that a Purchase Order group header can be printed as the last thing on a page with all the parts on the next page. How can I keep them together. Both the group header and the detail sections have their Keep Together properties set to Yes.

    Patrick: In the sorting and grouping area (button on the toolbar) for the Purchase order header, set the 'Keep Together' property to 'Whole Group'. This will ensure they print on the same page. HTH.

    PS: I used to program in Neat-2 and Neat-3 also.

    Thanks Bill, I had forgotten that one.

    Do you remember the 'CRAM' cards?

    Pat: Ah yes, the olde Card Random Access Memory. I guess we're telling our age now. I worked for NCR from 1968 - 1980.

    And the only way to input was to use punch paper tape, punched cards came later, wow, was that an advance.

    We sure are telling our age, ah what the young ones have not experienced. Or for that matter, maybe they would not want to.
