    What is the best way to have my company details print in all reports. I
    assume there is a better way than manually adding labels to each report,
    however, if I enter the details in a New Table called say 'Company details'
    how does that then relate to the other tables. I am using Access 2003 and XP.
    Thanks for any help.

    Store the value in a table, and use DLookup in the text box to display the
    name on the report.

    For example, if you have a table named tblSys, with fields:
    TheVariable (text, indicating what is stored, primary key)
    TheValue (text)
    you could create a record like this:
    CompanyName XYZ Ltd

    Then the text box on the report would have this Control Source:
    =DLookup("TheValue", "tblSys", "TheVariable = 'CompanyName'")

    For more help on DLookup(), see:

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!
