[Solved] Adding a Report Title in Base

Postby andreatk » Fri Mar 28, 2014 1:00 am

It has taken me all day, but I finally recreated in Base from a report I had done in Access. (I am transitioning from MS to Open Office). The only major problem I have: when I created the report, (I tired with and without using the wizard), the title did NOT come into the design. For the life of me, I cannot get the title to appear on the report. I do what I think is adding a text box to the header, thinking it will produce the title on the report, but it won't. I have worked at this all day and still can't do it. Can someone please tell me how to get a title on my report please. (When I imported my database from access, all the reports and forms imported as tables, making me recreate the reports. I wasn't that good at Access, the belly of the work created was done years ago, so I am like an infant learning how to's all over again! Please be basic with your responses, it is an uphill learning curve for this old brain!
Thank you in advance,
Andrea

Right-click> Add Report Title
Draw a label control and edit its properties (label, alignment, font etc)

You make it sound so easy. Thanks for the post. Apparently I did some similie of what you said, when I opened it up this morning, the title was there. I will give your simple version a try on the next report I have to make today. Thanks for the help. :)
