Designing a Multipage Report

Most reports display and print on multiple pages. When you design a report, consider how a multipage report displays and prints. You can, for example, design a report so that page breaks occur at logical places. For a report that contains a series of subreports, you can specify page breaks to start each subreport on a new page.

You can also design a page layout that enhances the report’s appearance and usability. A page layout specifies the style of the pages on which report data appears. You can specify, for example, that all pages display the report title in the top left corner, the company logo in the top right corner, a page number in the bottom right corner, and a report-generation date in the bottom left corner. You can also design special effects, such as a watermark that appears in the background. To design a page layout, you customize the report’s master page.
