23.3 Add Additional Text

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:

  1. Click the Paper Layout button in the toolbar to display the Paper Layout view.

  2. In the Object Navigator, type R_G_ENAME in the Find field to locate it.

  3. Click R_G_ENAME to select it. It is simultaneously selected in the Paper Layout view.

  4. Click the title bar of the Report Editor to make it the active window.

  5. Click the bottom handle of R_G_ENAME and drag it down about 4 inches (10 centimeters).

To add more text:

  1. Click the Text tool in the tool palette.

  2. Click about 0.25 inches (0.5 centimeters) below the first text object.

  3. 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.
    
    
  4. Click once in an open area of the Paper Layout view.

  5. Choose Tools > Property Inspector to display the Property Inspector for the boilerplate text object:

    • Under General Information, set the Name property to B_SALESREP.

  6. Click the title bar of the Report Editor to make it the active window again.

  7. Repeat the steps above, but this time use the following text and name it B_ALL2:

    We would also like to take this 
    opportunity to thank you for all of 
    your efforts over the last year.  As 
    a result of your hard work, company 
    revenues increased 15%.
    
    
  8. Again, repeat the steps above, but this time use the following text and name it B_ALL3:

    I look forward to seeing you there! 
    
    J. King 
    President 
    Summit Sporting Goods 
    
    
  9. Rename the original text object to B_ALL by selecting it and choosing Tools > Property Inspector to set the Name property.
