Hi,
What I want to do is simple in principle, but I can't work out how to do it!

I have data in a table that has a number of fields (40+), two of which are forename and surname.
I wish to create a report that has on the top forename and surname (which seems easily done), however I want the rest of the fields for that particular person showed on that page.
When I create a report using the wizard, the fields flow in a row across several pages.
I would like them to essentially wrap wround and stay on one page.

Any advice?

Repeat Last Command
Pressing F4 adds dollar signs when editing a formula. When not editing, F4 repeats last command.

If the wizard isn't wrapping the fields on your page, you can try using other wizards. Your best bet is to adjust the detail section in report design view by moving the fields around, so you can fit all the data on one sheet.
