Building Reports

Computers are convenient—but not for everything. Suppose you want to take your list of plants to the nursery to make sure that you know which varieties you already have when you’re shopping? Or you might want to put your plant pictures into a physical photo album, as well as storing them on your computer. If you start treating your garden as a commercial activity, you’ll also need to keep paper records to satisfy your accountant.

For all these reasons, you need to be able to get information from your database and send it to a printer instead of to the screen. Fortunately, Access includes the perfect object for this: It’s called a report. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to develop your own reports for those times when having the data onscreen just isn’t enough.
