Part 3: Creating Forms and Reports > Printing Basic Reports and Mailing Labels

Chapter 14. Printing Basic Reports and Mailing Labels

The final product of most database applications is a report. In Access, a report is a special kind of continuous form that is designed specifically for printing. Access combines data in tables, queries, and even forms to produce a report that you can print and distribute to people who need or request it. A printed version of a form can serve as a report, which often is the case for reports designed for decision support (one topic of Chapter 19, "Adding Graphics to Forms and Reports"). By printing a continuous form, you can create a report that displays some or all of the values of fields in a table or query.

This chapter describes how you create relatively simple reports, including multicolumn mailing labels, using the Report Wizards. The chapter also tells how you modify the design of the wizard's reports to suit your particular needs. The next chapter describes how you design a report from scratch without using the Report Wizards.
