Adding and Deleting Report Controls

After you create a report, you can add controls like labels, text boxes, check boxes, and option buttons to display your table and query data. The specific steps you take to add a control and define its data source depend on the control you want to create, but the Control Wizards are there to help you through the process.

When you create a control, you actually create a control (such as a text box) and a label identifying the control. You can delete, modify, or move the label without affecting its associated control.

Add a Control Using a Wizard

  1. Open a report in Design view.

  2. If necessary, click the Design tab.
