2nd column on a Report preview (access)

P: 52
Hi,
have a Report that creates labels. Just 6 textboxes on top of each other in the Detail section.
They are located on the left of the Report so when I open the Report I only get one column. Is it possible to have 2 columns?

Printing and Print Preview comes out correctly but opening the report does not add a second column.

Thanks

Then have the default property for your Reports as "Print Preview". Report View does not properly show columns. I have no idea why Microsoft even has that view.

Neruda,

Please help me to understand exactly what the problem is:

Printing and Print Preview comes out correctly
I'm not sure there is anything to fix if it prints correctly.

but opening the report does not add a second column.
But it prints and print preview is correct? How are you opening you report other than Printing or Print Preview? (Thus, as a side note, I will encourage every user of Access to DISABLE the EnableLayoutView property of every Form and Report in their arsenal for this very reason! If this property is enabled, it becomes the default view when opening these objects and their view is never accurate.)

Perhaps the second comments above are your solution?

Hope this hepps!

Hi,
the default view property of the Report is "Report View". So when I click the Report the pop window up shows just one column.

If the default view property is "print Preview" it comes out correctly.
