How to Print Very Large Fonts

P: n/a
I have a need to print very large font numbers on a card stock size of
5.5" x 8.5" in Access 97. The character count will not exceed 3
numbers across. So I'm assuming that a 3.5" to 4" height should work.
Of course, 72pt fonts fall considerably short of this size.

Can I use either Labels or Reports to do this? Any special setup
requirements? I don't necessarily need to rotate the text. Can basic
fonts be resized? I remember seeing something about
DataSheetFontHeight and a 127pt maximum in Access. Is this an option
to pursue? But 127pt would still be short of the height that I need to
attain.

Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks, Rolan

A couple of options:

1) Use the RotateText ActiveX control on my site with zero degrees of
rotation. Works for both Forms and Reports and can be bound to a field.

2)Use the Print method of the Report object to draw the text yourself.

I would suggest the second method.
