Create a simple report

Create a simple report
Views: 155
You can create a variety of different reports in Microsoft Office Access 2007, ranging from the simple to the complex. Begin by thinking about your report's record source. Whether your report is a simple listing of records or a grouped summary of sales by region, you must first determine which fields contain the data you want to see in your report, and in which tables or queries they reside.

After you choose your record source, you will usually find it is easiest to create your report by using the Report Wizard. The Report Wizard is a feature in Access that guides you through a series of questions and then generates a report based on your answers.

How to create and print unique report for each entry?

Preview
Actually I am very very new to Access and I started learning by creating a very simple database for an event we are organizing. I have created a simple form to input the participantsand their details.I also created various queries and reports that categorize the participants according to a certain type.

I also need to create a simple report for each participant and I cannot find the way. This report must also be printed after each record is done.
 

Problem with Query, Relationships and Reports in Access 97

Preview
I know. I know. I am way behind the curve on versions of Access, however, my state government is holding me back. I am trying to create a simple report using data from two different tables with a simple one-to-many relationship. The first table is Manufacturers Name and address.

The second table is the manufacturers product list. The join is on the manufacturer's name. For some reason when I create my report, which is a simple letter with name address and list of their products, I get all the products in the database in the report.

I have tried changing the join types, with no luck. I am getting the right sub-totals by manufacturer, but the next manufacturer continues on the same page. I know that I am missing something simple.
 

Simple Way to Carry Over Value of Field to Next Form

Preview
I need to upload a database to Sharepoint, so essentially I have no relationships, just LookUp Fields.

I have two tables, both sharing the Report Number field, datatype AutoNumber.

I want to have the Report Number on the first form displayed. Once the user has finished filling out information they can click a button to go to the second form. The Report Number will no longer be displayed, but the forms will all be part of the same report.

I need to have a simple way (w/o VBA) to transfer the value of the Report Number to the second form so that it knows it is all part of the same report.
I know that I can create a drop-down box so the user can select the Report Number, but my fear is that if there is a lot of reports (and there will be) that they could potentially forget what Report Number is being used and start filling out the wrong one.

Is there a way to carry the Report Number value over to the next form simply? Maybe a macro could do this

Guide to designing reports

Microsoft Office Access 2007 provides you with a number of tools that help you to quickly build attractive, easy-to-read reports that present the data in a way that best suits the needs of its users. You can use the commands on the Create tab to create a simple report with a single click. You can use the Report Wizard to create a more complicated report, or you can create a report by adding all the data and formatting elements yourself. Whichever method that you choose, you will probably make at least a few changes to the design of the report to make it display the data the way that you want. This article discusses the general process of designing a report and then shows you how to add specific design elements to your report.
 

Report from database or query

I have created a report using the simple method from the table and also using the query. No matter what I do to get "new" data to display in the report it is always pulling in from my original creation.
This report will be used on a monthly basis so I want ht e report that I created using January data to be able to pull March data into the report. Simple, but I have tried several things and it is not working out.

Report Filter by ComboBox

I'm trying to create a simple DB for tracking service calls. Everything is working how I want it with the exception of being able to create one report. I currently have a report called "Issues by Assigned To - Details", but I want to be able to run this report one "Contact" at a time.

I'm new to Access and can't for the life of me get this to work. I'd like to have a combobox in addition to my current report screen. This is built from the Microsoft "Issue Tracker" template.
