There can be many reasons why you may want a report when using Access. In this post, I am going to tell you how to create the easiest report you can. It may not be fancy or finished-looking, but it also will not prompt you for information. Why then am I telling you about this? Simple, I want you to see just what Access can do for you and to give you your first Access instructions. Most of the folks I know have not ever looked at Access but it can be a very valuable tool or it can just make something a lot easier for you (i.e., I create my Christmas card list using it). So, let’s get to it then. We will be using the Report Tool today.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- In the Navigation pane, click the table upon which you would like to base your report.
- On the Create tab, in the Reports group, click Report.
- Access will build your report for you and display it in Layout view.
Now, I mentioned above that your report will not be polished or fancy looking didn’t I? Well here is the good news…
You can then save your report and modify it in Layout view or Design view so that it better serves your purposes.
Be on the lookout as there will be more posts on this subject.
