    Default Version 9 Missing Report tab

    Suddenly the "report tab" is missing on my control panel. I realize that this is an older version but it is all I need for my requirements. I'm not sure why the report tab disappeared but I can't make any new reports now. All I want is to make some labels. Help, please.

    Right click on any of the tabs in the control panel and re-check reports.

    Right click in the tabs and see if the layouts option is checked.

    If so, then uncheck it.

    If layouts is checked, you can create new reports and other layouts by pressing the new button and you'll be prompted for the layout type.

    Stan, they were all checked.
    Al, the layout was checked, I unchecked it and voila the report tab appeared. Thanks so much to both of you.
    I really appreciate the quick help.

    Yes they were checked, but the tabs that weren't showing were also dimmed until you unchecked layouts.

    It's merely another way to present the objects in the control panel that sometimes gets inadvertently changed and causes some confusion and slight panic...

    Hope the rest of your day goes better...

    Oh, yes it will go much better. I'm amazed how quickly I was able ( with your help) to solve my problem. You can really get stuck on the simplest things sometimes.
