Enhancing Report Text

Unlike other Access database objects, a report is for the most part nothing but text. With the exception of a few images or lines or rectangles added for beautification or organization, a report is text: title, subtitle, page numbers, date and time, introductory remarks, field labels, and, of course, the data itself.

This means that you should set aside a significant parcel of time to work on your report text. That is, don't just accept the Access font defaults and move on to seemingly more important duties such as getting the fields placed just so. The text should be an integral part of the overall report design. After all, nicely formatted characters make the report readable and easy on the eyes, whereas slapdash text formatting can ruin an otherwise successful report.
