    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:
