Access 2016 Form Printing Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on a data system in Access 2016 involving contracts. Here is the workflow:

    1. I enter information into a form.

    2. My collaborator accesses the form and adds information.

    3. My collaborator prints the form, signs it, and sends a scan back.

    The form is formatted to be printed, but the form detail is absent from the printed version. The header is there, but the rest is blank. How can I resolve this issue? Is there a setting that is causing this issue?

    Thank you for your help.

  • Hello MHdata213,

    How did you design the form? Is the form bound to a table so your collaborator could see the information you enter?

    If you print the form directly after you enter information, will it success to print the detail body.

    Besides, Access form is not design for printing. For printing, I think a report will be more suitable.
