Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting the desired parameters, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- In this chapter we're going to build…a report that summarizes yearly profits…for each of Kinetico's product categories.…The report will be customizable via some…form controls so the end user can choose…a year and category to view.…We'll want to break down those profits…by geographic region and state.…There's a lot of parts to this project,…but we'll break it down and build it…one piece at a time.…Let's start by creating a query…that will collect and organize the data…that we're interested in reporting on.…To do that, I'll go over here to the create tab,…and then I'll choose query design.…
In the show table window we get to choose…which tables of information we want to pull from.…I'm going to start with the orders table.…From the orders table we'll be able to get…information about the order's date…and how many products were ordered.…Then we'll pull out the products table.…I'll double click on that to add it.…The products table will give us information…about the product's category…and some pricing information.…Next I'm going to go ahead and add in…

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.
