Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Calculating fields, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- The majority of the data for our report…has been fed in through the record source.…It's either a table, or an embedded query,…or in the case of the Customer Lifetime Sales report,…it's a linked query.…But we can actually calculate values right inside…of our report by using (mumbling) text boxes as well.…Let's go ahead and open up…that Customer Lifetime Sales report.…So far we've got the layout…and conditional formatting in place.…Let's add another level of information to our report…by summarizing data within each state.…What I'd like to do is get a total count…for how many customers we have in each state,…and the sum total of all the sales within the state.…
To keep things clean what I wanna do is add in…a state footer that'll appear below…the last record for each state down here,…let me go ahead and scroll down a little bit,…but before it changes to the next state.…And we'll go ahead and place…those calculated values in there.…Let's go ahead and switch our View into Design View.…If it's not open, go ahead and toggle on…
Then the course dives into reports: creating efficient and readable layouts, grouping data into categories, tying reports to queries, and using conditional formatting rules to highlight key takeaways from the data. Finally, Adam demonstrates how to link forms and reports together and print your results, and introduces unique ways to save time filling out paperwork and generating form letters.
