Using MS Access/Image control behavior on a report

Advertisement


Question
I've inherited a report with image controls.  Control Source is a path, Size Mode is Zoom, Picture Alignment is Center, and Picture Type is Embedded.  The report and images work (correct images are being printed) but they seem to "drift" in their positioning on the printed report.  Boxes mark where the images should appear on the paper used.  These images drift out of the boxed area.  It requires constant tinkering to move the image control so printing is accurate.

Any thoughts on how to correct this problem?
Thank you,
Theresa

Answer
I suspect the issue is that that the image doesn't fit the control boundaries properly. Is the Image control totally within the box control? Is the Image controls Can Grow property set to Yes?

You can also try to programatically set the Top and Left properties of the control in the ON Print and On Format events.

Hope this helps,
