Viewing and Printing Reports in Print Preview
When you create a report with either AutoReport or the Report Wizard, the report appears in Print Preview (as shown in Figure 19.5). From there, you can print the report if you're happy with it or go to Report Design view to make changes. (You'll learn more about the Report Design view in Lesson 20, "Customizing a Report.")
Figure 19.5. Either AutoReports or reports created with the wizard automatically open in Print Preview.
In the Print Preview mode, you can zoom in and out on the report using the Zoom tool (click once to zoom in and click again to zoom out). Using the appropriate button on the Print Preview toolbar, you can also display the report as one page, two pages, or multiple pages.
If you want to print the report and specify any print options (such as the number of copies), choose File, Print. If you want a quick hard copy, click the toolbar's Print button.
If you click the Close ( X ) button on the Print Preview toolbar, you are taken directly to the Report Design view. You learn about the Report Design view in the next lesson.
In this lesson, you learned how to create an AutoReport and a report using the Report Wizard. You also learned how to use Print Preview and print the report. In the next lesson, you learn how to work in Report Design view to customize your report.
