Chapter 14. Presenting Data with Access > Modifying a Report in Design View

Modifying a Report in Design View

When you create a report from scratch in Design view, three sections appear: Page Header, Detail, and Page Footer. Once you create the report, you need to populate it with data. You can add bound controls—fields of data from a table or query—directly from the Field List, or you can add other types of unbound controls—text boxes, labels, pictures, buttons, and so on—from the Toolbox. In Design view, you see two parts for every control: the control itself and its corresponding label. When you move a control, its corresponding label moves with it.

Create or Modify a Report in Design View

In the Database window, click Reports on the Objects bar, and then click New, or click a report, and then click Design; skip step 2.

In the New Report dialog box, click Design View, select the table or query on which to base the report, and then click OK.

Use the Toolbox and Field List to create or modify a report in Design view.

To view or hide headers and footers, click the View menu, and then click Report Header/Footer or Page
