Access 2003 Label Report - Text Position On Label Question


D

Dermot

Hi
I am using an A4 page of 8 labels, measuring 99.1mm x 67.7mm.

I created a label report using the label report wizard.

When I view the label report the label text is left justified and positioned
top left of the label. (In the corner)

Question
How can I position the label text left justified and centrally on the label?

"Centrally" vertical or horizontal? Have you tried just moving the text boxes
left or right or up or down?

Thanks for the reply Duane

I have not tried moving the text boxes yet...I'll try that.

I don't really understand the position of the text boxes in relation to
their position on the label when the report is viewed in design view.

Can you help me understand this a little better?

Thanks for the thorough explanation Chuck.

Is it possible in the label report to visibly see the ouline (border) of
each label.

This generally corresponds with the size of your report section. What you see
is the label.

Hi Chuck
Thanks again.
I meant the actual edge of the labels, not the text boxes border.

Yes.
Open report in design mode. Click on a text box. Click on properties. Click

Hi Chuck
Thanks yet again
That's exactly what I was looking for....... so it's the detail edges I
line......
Yes, I just wanted to be able to see where the text is in relation to the
label edges, I would remove them once that has been established.
Thanks

Hi Chuck
Sorry to return....please advise a little further?
I tried placing a rectangle over the text boxes and detail area.
I set the background property to transparent.
The problem is that when I view / print the report the last address line has
a large space after the previous line. Removing the rectangle returned the
full address to be spaced correctly.

The same happend when I drew line around the edge of the detail section.

The rectangle method would be my prefered method but I'm not sure why the
last address line is detached from the other address lines when all text
boxes are viewed correctloy in design view through the transparent rectangle.

Would you have any further suggestions?
