In today’s post, you will learn how to create a report using the Report Wizard. I like the sound of that, don’t you? I mean, who wouldn’t like to have a wizard around to do things you don’t necessarily know how to do or are afraid to try? And the good news is that you will most likely learn something in the process so you will not be afraid to venture further into Access and try different things!
Using the Report Wizard allows you to be more selective about the fields that appear in your report. It also allows you to specify how your data will be grouped and sorted, and you can use fields from more than one table if you have specified the relationships between the tables beforehand.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- On the Create tab, in the Reports group, click Report Wizard.
- Follow the directions on the Report Wizard pages.
- On the last page, click Finish.
Once finished, when you look at your report, you will see it as it will appear in print. You can also increase the magnification to zoom in on details.
I don’t know for sure, but I am thinking that this is too easy to not at least try! Let me know what you think!
