    This might sound like a stupid thig to do but it would help me no end.

    i run courses and have a database that maintains all my information, i would
    like access to produce certificates as well to save me time typing them out.
    i have a query set up to generate the names and information reqiured for the
    certificates.

    i would like to modify a report to look like a certificate and populate it
    with information from the query. at the moment i use powerpiont to produce
    the certificates, is there any way that i could use the powerpoint slides in
    access reports or make the report look like a certificate.

    i have tried doing a screen dump and then using that picture as a background
    in a report but it does not fit on the page.

    any help would be appreciated,

    thanks

    Phil

    Word has a lot of the drawing tool functionality of Powerpoint - what about
    setting it up as a mail merge linked to Access?

    Thanks for your reply Sheila, i managed to do it by setting the Image
    properties to Zoom, i needed to use powerpoint as it was a custum slide that
    i needed the background from.

    it works now and looks really good

    thanks
