    Default Report Formatting

    I have a simple report with no Groups.
    How do I prevent the Detail Header from repeating with each new record that is printed?
    I want the result to look like a spreadsheet.
    Titles at the top and information re each record below.

    Thanks.

    When in doubt, right click......

    on the section band containing the words

    Repeating Detail Header

    choose delete.

    Stan,

    Thanks. The Band did not say Repeating Detail Header when I started the Thread; however somehow after I received your response, as I right clicked and took numerous shots in the dark, those words appeared. With the Band saying Repeating Detail Header, it does what I want it too, ie one time only at the top of the page.

    Funny wording, but who cares. My problem now is how to recreate that Band Heading in another Report.

    How do I do it.
    Thanks,

    Larry

    When in doubt, right click............

    on the top area where the word Detail appears at the left,

    choose Detail Header (which will place a checkmark next to it).


    You could also right click as indicated, choose Properties, and make several header and footer choices.
