    Default Print current record on form

    Just checking. When printing a form, is this supposed to print fields on a tabbed object? It does not print info on Alphasports Product page.

    Yes I know it is better done as a report. Question still stands.

    Bill.

    Hi Bill,
    I am not certain regarding a tabbed form but on a non-tabbed one all fields will preview and print. Buttons and somethings such as a color determined by a calculated field won't.

    On a tabbed form, I wonder if just the tab that shows prints or all of them---time for a bit of testing I guess!! :)

    Bill, there have been lots of threads on this. Many have reported problems with "complex" forms. i.e. forms that contain subforms, forms that contain condtional objects, and yes, forms that contain tabbed objects. To know for certain I suppose you'll need to submit a formal bug report to get Alpha's official position. -- tom

    You are definitely going to need a stimulis package to get all tabs on a report....

    :D:D Wow!! Yep--Garbage when just trying to print the form....but then had to try what has been very successful in doing in basing a report on a form (importing a form). It actually prints EVERY tab present.....and that is the problem. Every tab is printed over all the other tabs data so is even worse garbage!!
