Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Building reports from wizards, part of Access 2007: Forms and Reports.
Reports don't know anything about data, all a report knows is formatting.…This font, this color, in this position, and that's it.…For all of their data needs, reports rely on a data source.…Data can come either directly from a table or a little more roundabout from a query.…The nice thing about using a query as a Data Source is that you can bring in…fields from multiple related tables, calculated fields, and expressions and give…it all to the report in one nice and tidy package.…When using a query, we have the option of using a pre-built query that you would…find over here the Navigation Pane or by creating what's called an embedded…query, directly inside of the report.…
Let's take a look at how our reports get data by having the Wizard walk us…through the first few steps.…I am going to go up to the Create tab here, and in the Report section click on Report Wizard.…The Report Wizard starts and it looks a lot like the Query Wizard if you ever used that.…And that's because essentially that's all we were doing here…
