Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Printing reports, part of Access 2010: Forms and Reports.
We've seen the Print Preview screen many times throughout this course, but we've…never really stopped to take a look at the ribbon.…Let's go ahead and open up our Lifetime Sales report in Print Preview by right…clicking on it and saying Print Preview.…Now most of these buttons are going to be pretty obvious in what they do.…We can change the size of the paper or set its margins, I can change from…Portrait to Landscape paper.…These changes however would alter the layout on our report.…For instance, if I switch to Landscape, Access will redraw the report on the new…page but it doesn't actually take advantage of the space over here on the right.…If I wanted to make this a landscape report;…I'd want to go back in the Design View and reorient my page so that I can take…advantage of the extra space.…
