I'm having problems changing the ruler units, I want to change them from cm

to inches, and I want to have grid dots in my report design view so that I

can place things more accurately. Please help me find out how to do this.

Thanks in advance!

      In addition to Doug's comment about your regional settings, you should note

      that the finest grid setting on the property sheet that can be seen is 24 x

      24. You can snap to finer settings, just not see them.
