    Is there a way in Access 2000 to define the default page setup for reports,
    specifically with respect to portrait vs. landscape. I have found an option
    to set the margins, but nothing to allow me to set portrait (8 1/2 by 11) as
    a default.

    Thx

    What happens if you create a blank report with the orientation you want, and
    save it as the template for new reports, under:
    Tools | Options | Forms/Reports | Report Template

    Peter,

    I like to have a consistent look to my forms & reports, including the fonts
    & locations of the titles, subtitles, selection criteria, etc. Simply create
    a form that has all of these set up the way you like, including the Page
    Orientation (File, Page Setup, Page tab, Landscape), and save it to something
    like "MyReportTemplate". When creating a new report, copy this definition to
    a new report, set the RecordSource property, and add your fields (or change
    the ControlSource property of already embedded ones).

    Hope that helps.

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!
