Having the record ID# at the top confuses people. &nbsp;How can I keep this from printing? &nbsp;It's not one of the form elements, and I tried unselecting the header/footer box to no effect.<br /><br />I've attached a screen shot. &nbsp;Circled in red is the record ID (key), and the alphanumeric #. &nbsp;It's not just the field label that's confusing - I can change that, it's that having two record numbers at the top of the form confuses people. I also know I can make my alpanumeric field the key field, but as people have advised, it's really best to leave the key field alone, and at this point, there's so many table relationships to the key field that I am loathe to change it.&nbsp;<img src="https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/s3_images/1624775/RackMultipart20170721-70609-12k2chx-Capture_inline.JPG?1500659434" title="Image: https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/s3_images/1624775/RackMultipart20170721-70609-12k2chx-Capture_inline.JPG?1500659434" /> question 3 3 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7558321 7558321 Get data from multiple tables 2017-07-21T18:16:30Z 2017-07-19T18:25:49Z chetan patil http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9184829 https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/a52334b10072eb87cd7ff9ca4683ffaa?d=identicon&s=55&r=PG chetan_patil I am creating the report to extract the data from multiple tables.
