Tour of Reports

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

  1. Double-click the report you want to open in the Navigation Pane.
