2 page form

P: 42
Hello all.

This is probably a basic problem but I cant seem to work it out. Basically I have a printer that prints to plastic cards that are double sided with personalized information which I get out of access table. I have been told for double sided cards I can set up a form in access and basically have page 1 and page 2 and tell the printer to print double sided in the drivers. What I cant work out is in access when I create a form it is one page. I cant seem to find a option to create a page break in the details box or create a second page. Is there a way?. I can do this in office but I have been told office can trip out printers a bit with mail merging.

So basically these card are the size of a business card.

And there will be X amount of fields on one side and X amount on the other. And I need page 1 and page to for each Card. Then in the drivers I select print both sides.

Any help would be appreciated.

Put your form in design view and the go to the Access Toolbar (where you can find the page break icon). Click on it to select it, then drag it to where you want the page break on your form.

I don't know why but I cant find it. In help I can see what the button is supposed to look like. I have looked through the toolbar options and I cant seem to locate a option that says page break and to turn it on.

Look for the toolbox on the toolbar. The toolbox is the one that has a hammer and wrench showing. Once you click the toolbox, you will see various icons for different controls. The page break control should be approximately the fifth row down on the left. Just in case you did not know, you need to be in design view to see the toolbox.

Yea the hammer and wrench is on the left hand pane. I'm using 2003 office. When I click on it I get a list, NO icons, one column. When I roll over it I get a pop up MORE CONTROLS. I cant see anything in there that says Page Break or Break in the list. There are no icons just a list.
