Chapter 14. Presenting Data with Access > Creating a Report Using a Wizard

Creating a Report Using a Wizard

One of the features you can use to create a simple report in Access is the AutoReport Wizard, which arranges data in a selected table or query as a formatted report. The AutoReport: Columnar Wizard displays each record's data vertically, while the AutoReport: Tabular Wizard displays the data for each record horizontally. You can also create a report using the Report Wizard, which allows you to select the fields and information you want presented and to choose from available formatting options that determine how the report will look.

Create and Save a Report Using the AutoReport Wizard

In the Database window, click Reports on the Objects bar, and then click New.

Click AutoReport: Columnar (to display records in a column), or click AutoReport: Tabular (to display records in rows).

Click the list arrow, and then click a table or query on which to base the report.

Click OK.

Access displays the form in Print Preview, but you can switch to Design view, save, print, or close the report.

Click the Save button, type a name for your report, and then click OK.
