    Hi,

    I have a report which I designed using the report wizard, and the data comes
    from a query.

    I want to add another field from the query to the report which I didn't
    specify when I created the report.

    So that I don't have to start fvrom scratch, how do I manually add a field
    and a text box for that field?

    Thanks!

    I think I worked it out.

    I added a text box to the report, and linked it to the required source by
    going to PROPERTIES -> CONTROL SOURCE...

    Is this correct?

    Thanks again!

    Hi James,

    Assuming you have already added the new field to the query, you can simply
    open your report in design view, and then click on View > Field List. The new
    field should be included in the listing. Drag this new field from the field
    list to whatever section of the report that you want to add it to.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
