An amusing bug – Report with 36505 pages has negative page numbers
A most amusing thread ms access negative page numbers
“I have an access report that generates 36505 pages (un filtered, and about half of each page is taken up by group headers and page headers) , though the footer at the bottom of the report page says "36505 of -29031".”
Some good sleuthing found that the Pages variable is an integer while the Page variable is a long. I can just see the discussion in the Microsoft Access product group. “But nobody will every have a report longer than 10,000 pages” <smile>
Also there is a work around for this problem in another posting. Well, I suspect if you hit 65K pages you will run into the problem again but hey, no report will ever bet that large.
