Hour 20. Reporting with Access 2003 > Introducing Access Reports

Introducing Access Reports

You often want printed listings of your data, and the Access reporting tools enable you to produce professional reports with ease. This hour introduces you to the report wizards and discusses the different reporting styles and options available. You learned how to produce printed listings in Hour 18, “Entering and Displaying Access 2003 Data.” In this hour, you learn how to add flair to your reports. Keep in mind that discussions of Access's reporting wizards could fill an entire book. Although you will not be a complete master at the end of this hour, you'll have a better idea of what reporting tools you can use.

Unlike forms, a report often displays multiple records in a view that resembles the Datasheet view. The difference between the Datasheet view and a printed report is that the report provides summary statistics, fancy headings, footers, page numbers, and styles that accent your data. In addition, you can pick and choose exactly what data the report is to include as well as group that data to subtotal and total certain pieces of data in the database.
