After you add the basic text in the Report Wizard, you need to create some additional text. The text must reside inside of the repeating frame, so before you add text, you will resize the repeating frame.
To resize the repeating frame:
Click the Paper Layout button in the toolbar to display the Paper Layout view.
In the Object Navigator, type
R_G_ENAME in the Find field to locate it.
Click R_G_ENAME to select it. It is simultaneously selected in the Paper Layout view.
Click the title bar of the Report Editor to make it the active window.
Click the bottom handle of R_G_ENAME and drag it down about 4 inches (10 centimeters).
To add more text:
Click the Text tool in the tool palette.
Click about 0.25 inches (0.5 centimeters) below the first text object.
Type the following text:
Because you're one of our top sales representatives, we would like to invite you to a celebration dinner after the picnic. Employees such as yourself brought in over $10 million in increased revenues this year, a 15% increase over last year. The dinner will be held at the City Inn from 7:00 PM to midnight. Dinner will be served at 7:30 PM. Please reply to Human Resources if you plan to attend.
Click once in an open area of the Paper Layout view.
Choose Tools > Property Inspector to display the Property Inspector for the boilerplate text object:
Under General Information, set the Name property to B_SALESREP.
Click the title bar of the Report Editor to make it the active window again.
