Chapter 4. Taming Access Data > Creating a Multiple-Column Report

Creating a Multiple-Column Report

Access reports come in two flavors: tabular, which uses a datasheet-like layout with fields in columns and records in rows; and columnar, which uses a form-like layout with the fields arranged in a single, vertical column for each record. For this reason, the columnar layout is also called the single-column layout.

The single-column format is useful when you have wide fields, because each field can use up to the entire width of the page. If your fields aren’t all that wide, however, the columnar layout is wasteful because you end up with a great deal of whitespace to the right of the fields. The tabular layout can get rid of the whitespace, but it’s not as nice looking as the columnar layout.
