Modifying a Report

As is often the case from the output of the Report Wizard, the resulting report could use a bit of tidying. For starters, you may want to replace some of the column headings with text that is more readable and descriptive. You can also safely delete the line of text beginning with "Summary for" at the end of each group; it doesn't really add any useful information to a typical report. Finally, you'll want to adjust the sizes and properties of some of the numeric fields to make sure they are completely visible and consistently formatted.

Grouping and Sorting Records in a Report

In complex presentations of Access data, groups are the essence of report design. A group defines how records are organized in the output of a report, and how information may be summarized in statistical calculations, such as totals and averages. In the Design view of a report, groups are represented by a hierarchy of Header, Detail, and Footer sections.
