Unbound Objects on Report

P: n/a
itm
I am using a Word document on a report in an unbound object. The
document does not appear on the report the same way it appears as a
Word document. It is much smaller. I tried changing the size mode to
zoom and that helped some but not enough. Is there a way to make the
object the same size and appearance as the Word document? This is my
first attempt at using an unbound object. My boss decided this was the
best way to accomplish his project. Sorry for asking such an
elementary question.

Thanks for your help!

Zoom fits the OLE Object to the OLE Frame, preserving the aspect ratio -- so
unless your OLE Frame is the size of the Word document, it will not be as
your boss would like. Reports are not interactive, so you can't click on it
to edit it with the original software; if it were a Form, you could
double-click and edit, but still only in the Unbound OLE Frame.

Thank you Larry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was having trouble getting the
frame the proper size yesterday I think. Also not being sure of what I
was doing. Anyway it worked perfectly this morning!
