coin_arch1.png Hi there from sunny Spain,please excuse the lack of tech jargon but I'm just a humble electronics engineer new to all this forum, forms ,tables etc but am struggling to adapt a sample ms dbase( Service Call Management )as supplied with the disk v9.0 spack3 in so far as one of the forms within the dbase called Workorder Labor(note spelling) although in design & datasheet view mode the comments text box can be viewed when print preview invoice is selected invoice prints as per screen but no comments box & hence no text that was typed into the text box which can be viewed on screen. Do not know if this is a bug with this ms sample database or simply something I need to do re:a wrong parameteror something, prob is I would run debug if I knew how to if it would help :whistling:

Hi dsk! Welcome to G2G!

The comments do appear, but they are just on a different page. On the bottom left of the print preview window, you will see a couple buttons. To go to the next page, you click the black arrow that is pointing to the right.
