Report Detail Height -- wont go less than .5833"

P: n/a
Hi:

Stuck on another thing.

On a report I am creating, I want to make the detail section one line vertically. However,
in design view, I click on the page Footer Bar ,grab it with the "double arrow and
cross", and try to move it up and while it moves, as soon as I release it jumps back to
its original position. For some reason the property "height" for the detail section is
stuck at a minimum of .5833". The height will go LARGER but not smaller. Clearly there is
some parameter that's holding it at that, but I cant find it!

Can anyone point in the right direction?

Regards

Thanks.

Im not quite clear what you mean by "control" on a report. There are no buttons, and only
one line of fields, none of which is at this height. The Bar on the left of the Report (in
design mode) wont move up either. Can you be a bit more explicit as to how I could correct
this?

Thanks again

John,
You may have a line, or a page break (or something), set just at that
point in the detail secton.
One way to check is to first make the detail section bigger. Then drag
your cursor along the left ruler (just for the detail section) to select
all the objects in the section.
You'll probably see a line at that point. Move the line up, then resize
the section.

Thank you

Yes I found that I had a line that I had inadvertently set to trasparenrt..and couldn't
see.

Once I moved that, it all worked.

Thanks a lot

Such a lot of good people in this newsgroup!
