Including Footers on Subreports in Access

68 New Member
My users have a database that they store the rules and requirements for how they do business in. For example: the Fiscal Policy or Board of Trustees Policy. The way the database reports are set up the user can print out the Title Page for the Fiscal Policy Manual and in a separate report the Table of Contents for the Fiscal Policy Manual and in a third report the Policies for the Fiscal Policy Manual. These 3 reports combined make up the Fiscal Policy Manual.

I am being asked to combine these 3 reports into 1 report. I can do this with 4th report that holds the 3 sub-reports. The issue is that each report has a different header and footer (in particular page numbering) and when I combine the reports I can not get the header or footer of the sub-reports to show. If I add a Header to the main report I am getting the header for the 1st sub-report (which then shows duplicative headers), but I can not get the header or footers for the other 2 sub-reports. Is there a way to force the header and footer to show or hide for each sub-report? Or is there a way to set page numbers to start on page 3 instead of page 1?

If you know of a better way to accomplish this and are willing to share with me I would really appreciate the help. I am stumped on this.

Thank you for reading my problem and sharing any solutions you have come across with me.

Simplified the control source in the "Page N of M" in the test database. It now reads:
=IIf(([Page]>[z_ctrl_txt_offs et]),"Page " & ([Page]-[z_ctrl_txt_offs et]) & " of " & (([Pages]-[z_ctrl_txt_offs et])),"")

Updated the database in Post #16

This has all of the changes incorporated in the code and the control.
I have also reordered the SR(#) grouping. The mock-page header was repeating within the detail section when the PK was chaning (1 to 2 to 3 etc...) The SR# group(=1):heade r was promoted to the top level and the general record sorting a grouping under "=1" in the subreport. Also set the SR# mock-page header to repeat by setting the repeat section setting for "=1" group to true.

My pleasure.

To be honest, I don't usually do the full blown database and code prefering instead to "help you help yourself" approach; however, reading the MVP forums, the MS sites, and other forums, the page numbering thing is a real task - even for the MS-MVPs!
Well we have it now, let's just hope your Boss doesn't want the "i - xi" type page numbering for the TOC, I might just cry ;,-(
Good luck with the rest of your project!
