Creating a Report Using a Wizard


One of the features you can use to create a simple report in Access is the AutoReport Wizard , which arranges data in a selected table or query as a formatted report. The AutoReport: Columnar Wizard displays each record's data vertically, while the AutoReport: Tabular Wizard displays the data for each record horizontally. You can also create a report using the Report Wizard , which allows you to select the fields and information you want presented and to choose from available formatting options that determine how the report will look.

Create and Save a Report Using the AutoReport Wizard


In the Database window, click Reports on the Objects bar, and then click New.


Click AutoReport: Columnar (to display records in a column), or click AutoReport: Tabular (to display records in rows).


Click the list arrow, and then click a table or query on which to base the report.
