Microsoft Access Report Construction

Microsoft Access


  • Reports are formatted output of the results of queries.

  • Access has two ways to create reports:

    • Custom Reports

    • Report Wizard

  • In both cases, you need a query that contains the information you want to put into the report.

Microsoft Access


  • You can format and print tables and queries in Datasheet view, but reports have two advantages over other methods:

    • Reports can compare, summarize, subtotal and total large sets of data

    • Reports can be created to produce attractive invoices, presentation materials, purchase orders, etc.

Microsoft Access


  • Can define up to 10 grouping criteria to separate levels of detail

  • Can define separate headers and footers for each group

  • Perform calculations within a group or across groups

  • Note that there are two icons for adding “text” – they are NOT the same:

  • The Text Box allows you to add a field from the query; must be bound to a field

  • The Label allows you to add free-form text
