Reports summarize and present data stored on tables. A report can be executed at any time and it will always reflect the updated data of the data base. The information usually has a format that allows printing, but it's possible to be consulted in the screen, to be exported to another program or also to be sent by electronic mail. You can create a wide variety of reports in Microsoft Office Access 2007, from simplest to most complex.
 

Access 2007 Reporting Versus Crystal Reports

Preview
Recently the topic of Crystal Reports was brought up. We are a small firm with a small IT budget.

Our data lives in SQL Server, Access 2007, Excel, and in a purchased package’s Pervasive Database which we can access nicely via ODBC.

We currently do not have Crystal Reports, or any other report writer other than the reporting features that are integrated into Access 2007.

I took a stand and said that I believe that Access 2007 will be able to handle our reporting needs. We currently have very few reports and it appears that our reporting needs are quite basic.

The bulk of our data lives in SQL Server, but we do not have SQL Server Reporting Services available.

Are there issues that I should be aware of when starting to use Access 2007 Reporting against SQL Server? So far, our initial experiments have worked nicely, but we have only started to scratch the surface.

If we are heading down the wrong path, I would like to know sooner rather than later.
 

Highlighting Reports

Preview
Analysis of data stored in Tables and providing resultant information in the form of Reports to the outside world is an important function of any Database Management System.
An Access Application may contain several Tables logically related but maintained separately for easier handling. When it is time to prepare Reports related tables are selected and joined on common information in them, filtered and placed the output on Reports. Meaningful and timely Reports play a very important roll in decision making.
Report designing is an Art in its own merit, like Form designing. MS-Access is equipped with excellent Report Designing Tools and with little practice you can master it.
 

Too much data for Access 2007????

Preview
I am very new to Access and databases in general. My question is: is it possible to have too much data for Access 2007 to handle?

Here is the scenario: My company uses an EXTREMELY large database, millions of lines of data. We employ admins who perform all of their queries, reports, etc. using an SQL Server. I am not an admin, but have been tasked with writing queries and reports for my work group using Access 2007. I have been able to perform simple queries, but when I try something very complex, Access just runs and runs for up to hours ata time without ever timing out or returning any data. I have supplied my SQL statement to the admins for quality check and testing. They are able to run my queries in the SQL server in less than thirty minutes. Am I asking too much of Access 2007?
