Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding line numbers to the report, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- Sometimes adding a running line number…to the side of a report might be beneficial,…and make it easier to refer to specific line items…during meetings or conference calls.…Using an unbound text box,…we can add this type of enhancements…to our reports quickly and easily.…Let's go ahead and take a look at the…Profit Summary Report that we've been building.…I'll double-click on it to run it.…Now because we're not going through the Main Menu,…Access wants to know…what the parameters for those values are,…for the CBO year here,…now I'm just going to go ahead and leave it blank…and say OK,…and also for the CBO category.…Just go ahead and say OK,…and the report should still run properly.…
