Inserting text as background

I was wondering how to insert a text across a report and put it as a background. For example, I am trying to insert "SAMPLE" on a diagonal across the report and select the "move to back" option. When I do this, the bottom half of the report gets moved to the next page. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a different way to do this???

Hi Megan,

Have a look to this:


How can you design a report so a pre-printed form or a watermark underlies the data on the report?


Use the 'Underlay following section' formatting option to achieve this.

1. Create an additional Page Header section:

ยท Right-click the gray area to the left of the Page Header section

- Select 'Insert section below'

This inserts a second Page Header, so you now have a Page Header - a and a Page Header - b.

2. Re-size the Page Header - a section so it is the height of the page.

3. Insert the bitmap image (a .BMP file) of the pre-printed form or logo for the watermark into the Page Header -a section.

4. Go to Format | Section to open the Section Expert window, and select the Page Header - a section.

5. Select the 'Underlay following section' option.

6. Close the Section Expert.

The bitmap image in Page Header - a now appears beneath all the sections that come after it, up to the Page Footer.

The Page Headers and Page Footers cannot exceed the vertical size of the report.

NOTE: =====

Ensure that you suppress the Page Footer of the report because the Page Header cannot underlay the Page Footer.

Hope that helps!!
