Chapter 15. Preparing Advanced Reports > Working from a Blank Report

Working from a Blank Report

Usually, the fastest way to set up a report is to use the Report Wizard to create a basic report and then modify the basic report as described in Chapter 14, "Printing Basic Reports and Mailing Labels," and previous sections of this chapter. If you're creating a report style that the Wizard can't handle or a report containing a subreport, however, modifying a standard report style created by the Report Wizard could take longer than creating a report by using the default blank report that Access provides.

Using a Report as a Subreport

The report includes information about total monthly sales of products by category. Comparing the monthly sales to the inventory level of a category allows the report's user to estimate inventory turnover rates. This report serves two purposes—a primary report and a subreport within another report. You add the Monthly Sales by Category report as a subreport of the Products on Hand by Category report in the "Incorporating Subreports" section later in this chapter.
