Formatting Reports

In Chapter 13, “Customizing Forms,” you learned about form properties; reports also have properties, and you can change them to create just the right look for your reports. You can add subtle shading to controls or entire sections. Or, you might want to apply a border or other special effects to a control. In this section, you’ll use AutoFormat and the Properties window to set report properties.

Using AutoFormat

The AutoFormat feature quickly applies an overall display scheme to a report, the same way it does to a form (which you learned about in Chapter 13). Although Access comes with several predefined formats, you can create your own.
