    Unanswered: Printed watermark

    I have a question about the void receipt. If the receipt is void. I would like to print void receipt with watermark like in word. Just like void check. Is it possible in the report. Thank you!

    That is a printer setting, nothing to do directly with Access. E.g., my printer at work (an HP4100B network printer): when I click File-->Print, and the dialog box comes up, I click "Properties", click on the "Effects" tab, and the Watermark combo is right there. Just click "Edit" to create/edit a watermark, or set an existing watermark for the current report. Saving the setup marries the watermark to the report.

    Hope this helps,

    Sam

    You could just slap something across a report using labels... You can set a property of them to only be visible on print (or other)... That is, if memory serves correctly

    Kewl...Does the other printer you might use have this option as well.

    Like George mentioned....slap a label (with the Visible property set to No) across the report and when the condition is met....make the label Visible.

    (like I'm gonna rip through a printers dialog either manually or programmatically every time I want Void written on a receipt)

    DOH....did I say that out loud?

    Actually A2002 has a field on the [format] tab that says display when: always/print only/screen only just do the print only one.

    Better yet... create a yes/no column named void or something and set the data source of the label to =Iif([void], "VOID", ""). Now the watermark will only show for records that are voided. (And set it to be visible always.)

    If you're printing straight from a form and don't want the watermark to show on the form, try this: set the watermark to be "print only." Add a radio button that is screen only. During data entry, the radio button shows you whether the record is void. When printing, the big watermark comes out. This trick saves a lot of duplicated effort involved with creating a separate form and report.

    This is nice. I did try to use label with void text on it. It looks good. But the thing is i would like to have void word cover the whole receipt. I try to add the font size and let it show on the center. Is that way to have void word cover the whole receipt? Maybe i could use image. So that will be good. What do you think?

    Well then...Use the Image control then. Make a Image that will look exactly as you like it. What the hell.... get it off the Internet if you like. Convert it to a Watermark....whatever. Stretch the Image to waterever size you want. Make the Image Control visible when the right condition is met.
