    Unanswered: Need help with my report form

    Can I get anyone to take a look at my db and my old reports and help correct the errors I have added to it?

    Somehow I have screwed my weekly report form up. I had it looking ok except for needing a footer, page #, page breaks, , adding a summary page etc. and I added them but somehow I made my reports go from 12-14 pages to 36+ pages which is not what I was wanting. Can anyone take a look at my db and my old weekly reports that I am trying to base my new report on my new db off of? I can donate you a few dollars for your time and help if that gets it fixed any faster.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    If you can help I will send my new db and my old reports so that you can investigate where i have made my errors.

    Well I don't see any problems with the reports... apart from some basics like closing up the detail section's height to save pages.

    What exactly is it you need?

    It shouldn't be 36 pages. I wanted some page breaks but it made the report go from 14 pages to 36 pages. Also if you look at the Tower 16th floor info. All of the info from the Tower which is a 16 floor inpatient care area is listed on the 16th floor instead of it being broke up between different floors.

    If you look at the tour data itself it might be easier to understand what I am saying!

    On problem at a time. Exactly which report are you talking about? There are three weekly reports. And what date range are you using to see the 36 pages?

    I'll move onto the other issue later, but it sounds like you've messed with grouping somewhere along the line.
