Using MS Access/Reports

Question
QUESTION: I would like to create a continuing notice in an Access report. I know how to do this is Crystal Reports, but I canno remember how ot do this in Access. Ex, when grouping data and you set the group header section to repeat, I would like the next page that continues the section to say "continued from Page X" and so forth. Also a "continued from" notice would be nice. Can you help? Thank you.

ANSWER: There is no inherent feature in Access that will allow this. You might be able to do it in VBA by detecting the new page and setting the caption property of a label. I've never tried and really don't see much of a value in it if you have sequential page numbering.

Hope this helps,

QUESTION: Thanks for your help Scott. Basically it isn't so much the page number that I need referenced but the fact that the continued group being displayed is not the full group; that it started on the previous page and involves navigating back to view the whole group. Can you provide a piece of sample code that I could try? I'm not sure where to begin on that. Thanks again. Mark.

Answer
OK, I checked with some of my colleagues who made some suggestions. I would try This solution first:

Take a look at the “HasContinued.mdb” sample

If that doesn't do what you need, let me know.

Hope this helps,
