Access 2010 Creating Reports

Reports allow you to organize and present your data in a reader-friendly, visually appealing format. Access 2010 makes it easy to create and customize a report using data from any query or table in your database.
In this lesson, you will learn how to create, modify, and print reports.

How to save a report as a pdf file - 2010
Just updating our database following conversion from 2000 to 2010.

Managing headers across forms and reports
I am creating a DB with several forms and reports and would like all the forms to have the same header section with a logo and nearly all the reports to have another one.)

I’m using Access 2003 and have not found anyway of creating master template to do this and am thinking the best way would be to define a common Word object and paste the same object to each form/ report.

Is there a better way?


What is switchboard
A Switchboard is a type of form that displays a menu of items that a user can click on to launch data entry forms, reports, queries and other actions in the database. A switchboard is typically created after all of the forms and reports for a database application have been completed. It can be used to guide the user to an appropriate set of forms and reports.
Note that starting with Access 2010, Switchboards are not available by default (you will need to add this to the ribbon bar manually using the Options). Access 2010 now makes use of the Navigation Forms


Can't publish Access 2010 reports to SharePoint 2010 site
I have a 2010 Access database that contains data fueled from a 2010 SharePoint list. From this data, I have created several reports that I would like to make available on the same 2010 SharePoint site in which the data came from.

I'm attempting to do this via Save & Publish>Publish to Access Services. After I enter my SharePoint site's URL and Site Name (I have also run the compatibility checker with no issue), I am asked to verify my credentials. I then receive this error message from Access:

(URL) did not respond. Either the server does not exist, Microsoft Access Services are not enabled on the server, or the server is using an older version of Microsoft Access Services that isnot compatible with Access 2010.

According to our IT department "The SharePoint 2010 Central Farm is configured for Access Services. The feature has to be enabled at both the Site Collection and Site level."

I also noticed if I right click on a report, and select Export, "sharepoint" is greyed out.

Need to only allow users to use forms/reports in 2010 Access database
I have been all over the internet reading about Access 2010 security and how user-level security is not in this latest version of Access.

I have built a database of our clients' contracts and other information. I have coworkers that are seriously technologically challenged. I want them to be able to use the database to lookup information on their particular clients that they manage by using reports and forms that I've created.

I do not want them to be able to manipulate the data in any way because they would do something, click somewhere and not know what they did or where they clicked.

I split my database but there is still access to the tables and they can be changed so that's not the answer. I was hoping there was a way to only allow them to see reports and forms sothey wouldn't be able to inadvertently mess up the database.


How To Print Only Access 2010 Reports Data

report filter not working in Access 2010 SP1
Windows auto installed Office 2010 SP 1 and now my Access 2010 reports no longer work. It is a Access 2003 mdb file running in Access 2010. It was working fine till SP 1 was installed.

DoCmd.OpenReport strReportName, acViewPreview, , strSQL

the report opens fine, but no longer filters like it used to. (In my case I am filtering dates, using the # characters.)


Access 2000 Database Report freezing until opening other reports
I am running a 2000 Access Database that when I go to open a certain Report (containing sub forms) will cause Access 2010 to stop responding. It will do this with all versions of the Database and on both 2007/2010 Access, and until I start opening other reports (It takes me opening all of them it seems) then automagically the first report works.

I should note that this is not my Database, rather I inherited it from my Boss. So I do not know where all the guts are and where they go.


Access 2010 Multi User Databse Set up
What would be the steps to follow to take an existing Access 2010 accdb and split out the data tables from the forms, reports, queries, etc.?


Access Runtime 2010, tables, forms and reports and not visible
What am I missing with Access 2010 Runtime?

I have a small database I would like to distribute to a few people who don't have Access. I published that database as an ACCDE.

I installed Access 2010 Runtime on a co-worker's machine as my test case. I copied the new ACCDE also on that co-worker's computer. When I tried to open the ACCDE, it opened but none of the tables/forms/reports were visible.

What am I missing? How do I easily distribute databases to those without Access? Is there something special I need to do?


Access 2010 - Creating a Data Macro
Office 2010 Developer Training Course > Access 2010 > Building Solutions with Access 2010 Lab using the Contacts Web Database template.

I'm at Exercise 4: Creating a Data Macro and for whatever reason my macro is not working at all.

I created the macro and confirmed it matched to the guide and I had no errors when I saved it, so that has to count for something.

The macro is suppose to be invoked when the 'Status' variable is "Offer Outstanding" more than once in the database.

Yet I can select it multiple times without any instances of the macro displaying any warning message as it should.


Trying to email separate reports to separate addresses
I need to separately email 40 salespeople with their individual pipelines using a single report format I have already created.

I see the likely unnecessary work of first creating 40 unique queries (one for each salesperson), then creating 40 reports with the same look, then finally creating a 40+ stepmacro of emailing each report as an object (from the macro dropdown).

Is there an easy solution to email specific reports to salespeople based on their name? And.can I do it without VBA (at least for this exercise)? If so, how would I go about it?

If I use the group by function on the report, how do I get it to change the report header for each email? Also, how will Access know where to dynamically stop before sending the next email?


Access 2010 User Groups
I have recently started to build a new database using Access 2010 and have now found that the UserGroups have been taken away, and I was wondering if there is a way to set permissions from a table to allow certain users access to certain parts of the database, mostly all form access and then run reports.

Does anyone have an ideas and possible sample they might share to get me going.
