How to make "report view" to appear like "print preview"?

P: 3
I'm working in a 2002-2003 version of MS Access.

I can't access the command buttons while in the "print preview" format but I can access the command buttons in the "report view" format.

Is there a way to reshape/adjust the "report view" format so that it appears similar to the visual format of "print preview"?

Within a MS Access report, I've added a control button & attached an associated macro to that control button.

As end users view the report, my intent is for them to be able to click on that control button, while in "print preview", to abtain additional info. The issue is that when viewing the report in the "Print Preview" format, the control button is visible, but it is not accessible.

Is there a way to click on that control button while viewing the report in the "Print Preview" format?

No. Print preview is not an interactive mode. I would move the button to whatever selection form opens your report in print preview mode.

Reports are effectively end-products which do not interact with users. Use forms for the interaction, not reports.
