Printing problem

P: n/a
How do I hide the buttons when I'm printing a form off? I want the buttons
on the form normally but not on the printed version.

Another problem I've encountered is how do you get rid of the record
navigation bar at the bottom of the form?

1) If you are printing a form and don't wish to show the buttons, you
can set each of the buttons Display When property to Display Only.
It's on the Form's Format tab.

2) Forms are best used for data entry and manipulation.
Reports are designed for printing.
You can create a report, which will give you much more control over
what is printed.
Right-click on the Form name. Select Save as Report.
Modify the report to show or not show what ever you want.

Thanks Fred, much appreciated. Sorted both problems out in the forms format
options.
