Access Reports thinks <body> is a parameter RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a personal Access database. I created a simple report based on the article "Extending Access Reports with Word and HTML" at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/aa191485%28v=office.11%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396 

    What I did was to place the HTML code in labels. I placed the <HTML>, <body>, <title></title> and <head></head> in the Report Header. For some reason when I run the report, it asks for data for <body> as if it was a parameter. How can I turn this off? This only happens with the <body> tag. I'm using Access 2016.

  • I am unable to reproduce the behavior you are describing.

    We'd need a step by step guide to reproduce your setup, or a demo version of your database to review.

  • I found the problem.  I had the </body> in the Report Footer, but I encased it in a textbox. When I place it in a label , like I did in the Report Header for <body>, the problem went away.

    Thanks for trying.
