I am having issues trying to create a report that is going to become a Mail Merge. I need to have a single page with each part of the layout below if that makes any sense.

Example data.
Field layout is.
Name, Address, City, Zip-code, St, Telephone, Create Date, Amount, Description, sa-prd

code is
SELECT, customer.Address, customer.City, customer.[Zip-code], customer.St, customer.Telephone, CONVERT(CHAR(10), SaBudget.CreateDate, 101)AS Create_Date, SaBudget.Amount, SaBudget.Description, SaBudget.[sa-prd]
FROM SaBudget INNER JOIN customer ON SaBudget.[Cust-no] = customer.[Cust-no]

When I create my data source and then create my dataset i use that query and when I execute this it gives me the data I need so the next step I figured would be input the image onto the Design screen so I did that. I chose Embedded and the size was original size. and hit ok. Next I clicked on text box dragged and dropped them right next to the name and address of the ones on the image so i can see what the data. Now I then right clicked on the textbox and went to expression and tried to select Fields but it comes up with Report Item not linked to a dataset. So I look below and see datasets and it actually has all my fields but it has them as First and SUM. When I use those and then preview it only shows me the 1st page and when i try to export it i only get 1 page as well. Please help I am confused. Also when I take the field and drag and drop it onto the page it automatically goes to expression.
