Report.Page Event (Access)
The Page event occurs after Microsoft Access formats a page of a report for printing, but before the page is printed. You can use this event to draw a border around the page, or add other graphic elements to the page.
To run a macro or event procedure when this event occurs, set the OnPage property to the name of the macro or to [Event Procedure].
This event occurs after all the Format events for the report, and after all the Print events for the page, but before the page is actually printed.
You normally use the Line, Circle, or PSet methods in the Page event procedure to create the desired graphics for the page.
The NoData event occurs before the first Page event for the report.
The following example shows how to draw a rectangle around a report page by using the Line method. The ScaleWidth and ScaleHeight properties by default return the internal width and height of the report.
The following example shows how to use the Page event to add a watermark to a report before it is printed.
