    Continuous Report (2000)

    I've done a search, and found suggestions on how to make a report continuous and not go across pages, neither of which seem to work

    1) Setting all sections 'Force New Page' to NONE

    2) 'Keep Together' to NONE


    ive changed these settings for all sections of the report, but it is still giving me 3 pages, and not a single long sheet.


    Anyone know whats going on here ?

    Where is all the white space? top? bottom? in between the detail lines? or is a page break appearing after a particular group of data?

    Re: Continuous Report (2000)

    The report is coming out on 3 pages, first 2 full pages, 3rd part..


    what i'm after is one continous stream of detail..ie: not using 'pages' at all. or.. if you like 1 'page' only.,

    apparently this can be done, patt in an earlier thread got it to work, he got it to work by making a blank report and copying all the
    fields over. ive tried that already, no joy.

    I presume you are using Sections - do you need them? Placing all the information to be displayed in the detail section would give one continuous stream of data. Data could be sorted in the query, rather than in the form.

    Even deleting all the sections bar 'detail' still gives me multiple pages ...

    Have you looked at page setup - reduce the margins top and bottom. If you don't need a footer or header, make sure that the space it takes up in the form design is reduced. Finally - are you sure that the amount of data will actually fit on one page? Try reducing the font size if all else fails

    Re: Continuous Report (2000)

    Report preview and output is constrained by the printer driver. Unless you are using a plotter, how would you get one long page instead of three? Are you trying to achieve something like Excel's ability to size the printer output to a single page? That happens independent of the printer driver, but Access reports don't work that way.
