Reports present data in a table or query in printed format. Reports can be a simple list of records in a table or a complex presentation that includes calculations, graphics, or even charts.
Although you can directly print tables and queries, they don’t have any format or display options.
Open a Report
- Double-click the report you want to open in the Navigation Pane.
The report appears in Report View.
Switch to Layout or Design View
To edit a report’s structure, you need to change to Layout or Design View.
- Click the View button list arrow in the Views group on the Home tab.
- Select Layout View or Design View.
Most edits can be made in Layout View, but complex tasks require Design View.
