  • Making an object underlay a following section
    Making an object underlay a following section
    To make the picture underlay the following section
    1. On the Report menu, click Section Expert.

      The Section Expert dialog box appears.

    2. In the Sections list, click Page Header, then select the Underlay Following Sections check box.
    3. Click OK to preview the report again.

      The picture now prints in both the first Group Header and the following few Details sections, next to (instead of above) the text in the body of the report.

      Note:    Using the technique of placing a picture to the right of the body of the report, you can set up a chart or an employee picture to print beside the details pertaining to that chart or employee.

    4. Once you are finished previewing the report, return to the Design tab.
    5. Resize the picture vertically to make it two or three times larger, then preview the report again.

      The bitmap file now underlays more sections.

    The area in which the picture underlays depends on the following conditions:

    • The size of the picture.
    • The section in which the picture was originally placed.
    • The position of the picture in the section.

    By modifying size and placement of an object, you can create a variety of visual effects, using the underlay feature.

  • I can see the watermark. But the box objects disappear when watermark is present. Text is fine though. My watermark is a png image. Any ideas?
