    (a) Use a rectangle.

    (b) Format - Align - Top/Bottom and Format - Align - Left/Right

    Thanks, StarTrekker,

    I've got the rectangle OK (its easy, yeh )

    But I am not sure where to format the printed page with align top/bottom/left/right???? I have managed to align the Form on the screen, but when I print the Form on paper, it is not centred properly?

    Cheers,

    To centre stuff, just make all the controls equally wide (Format - Align - Left and then Format - Size - To Widest) and then hit the centre alignment button.

    Centering vertically on a page isn't something databases do well since typically, the depth of the page will depend greatly on the data you're printing... which would normally be different every time you print. Just align to the top.
