Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Grouping and sorting data, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- Access's way of preparing material and data…for the printed page is through the Report object.…Reports take data from tables and queries,…applies formatting and organizational rules,…and bundles all of it together into documents…that are ready to be sent to a printer or a PDF file.…In this movie, we're gonna take a look…at how Access organizes data…into grouping and sorting levels.…If you ever use the Totals row within a query,…this may seem somewhat familiar,…because the concept is really similar.…Let's get away from the KinetEco database for just a moment…and open up a sample database…that's built around a deck of playing cards.…
I wanna first take a look at this table here called Draw.…I'll go ahead and double-click on it.…If we take a quick glance at the bottom,…we'll see that we have…5,000 individual records in this table.…Now, this table represents 5,000 random card pulls…from a deck of playing cards.…You could see that the first card that I pulled…was a six of hearts,…and the second card was a four of clubs.…
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.
