Is there a way in report design view to place an image that covers the complete report form (mine is 6cm X 16cm) and then add fields 'on top of' that image so they print together?

Ratslinger is correct.

If you still need background images in your report, you may want to look into making a report using your data and then editing the report output document in Writer where you have more control of the document appearance using background colors and bitmap images, etc. Just an idea.

Thanks. I was hoping there was a way to use the 'Arrange' menu option in the Database that is available in other LibreOffice modules so that objects can be moved forward and backwards and layers can be established. I want to use the Database report to print event tickets and clients often want graphics and logos as well as the event info on the ticket.
