12 page Contract Report

12 page Contract Report

12 page Contract Report

(OP)
Access 2003
I have a 12 page contract currently in Word. I only used data from 2 fields in a query in this report. The rest is static text. I currently mail merge to Word to print it out. I would like it to be a report in Access to make it a more seamless user experience. I am not sure what the best way to go about putting that much static text in a report. Any Assistance pointing me in the right direction is appreciated.

RE: 12 page Contract Report

Without much information, I would consider dividing the contract into sections and copying into records in a table. Then use the table in the record source of a report. Make sure you include a field that identifies the sequence of the records.

For instance, setup the table with a MEMO field and then each paragraph could be a separate record in the table? I believe I can handle this. Thanks Duane!

RE: 12 page Contract Report

That was my initial recommendation. You can use the Replace() function if you need to do some type of merge in the paragraphs.
