Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Hiding repeating values, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- When displaying sorted, tabular data in a report,…it's often the case that you'll have…some sort of duplication in the values being displayed.…For instance, if a customer has placed several orders,…their name might appear multiple times,…one on top of another.…You can clean up the design of your report…by hiding these types of repetitions.…Let's go ahead and open up our main menu,…and I'll show you an example.…Let's go ahead and choose a year here.…I'll choose 2014 and Batteries.…We're gonna go ahead and view the Profit Summary.…When the report runs, you'll notice…the Batteries category gets repeated over and over again.…
If I close the report and go ahead…and select a year, but don't select a category,…go to View Profit Summary here,…you'll notice that we get the same state…appearing multiple times as well.…So let's go ahead and clean up the design of this.…I'm gonna close Print Preview here,…and I'll close out the Main Menu,…and then I'll go down into my report,…down here on the very bottom, and I'll right-click on it…
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.
