Chapter 4. Planning a Database > Planning Possible Reports

Planning Possible Reports

Planning your reports is similar to planning the forms. The difference between forms and reports, you’ll recall, is that reports are meant to be printed out on paper, rather than worked with onscreen. You might have collected reports during the discovery process; if so, get them out now because they can provide inspiration. Some applications don’t even generate reports, but must have at least one or two.

Reports are usually the final product of the application and often tell the application’s story. For instance, the plants database might provide reports you can store to use as records of your garden in future years.
