What is a report?

A report is a “window” that provides views of your data based on the criteria you select. A report can contain detailed or summary information of the data that is contained in one or more tables in the databases. Reports are easily generated using the Report Wizard.

What is the difference between using Report Wizard and creating manual reports?

When using the Report Wizard to create a report, you are asked a variety of detailed questions regarding the record sources, fields, layouts and format that is desired. A report is produced based on the answers you provided. Unless you are an experienced Microsoft Access user and have created manual Access reports in the past, you will probably want to use the Report Wizard to provide you with the information you are looking for.

Creating a manual report

Under “Microsoft Access Create”, click to Report Design.
