Access breaks your reports into separate parts called sections. Each section has its own specific purpose and always prints in the same order on a report. Let's take a closer look at the sections in a report.
|A||Report Header: The Report Header contains text that appears at the top of the first page of a report, such as the name of the report.||B||Detail: The Detail section contains text and the actual fields that are displayed for each record. This would be like the main body in a word-processing document.|
|C||Page Footer: The Page Footer contains text that appears at the bottom of each page of a report, such as page numbers.||D||Report Footer: The Report Footer contains text that appears at the end of the last page of a report. It often contains numeric summaries for the report, such as a grand total.|
You can add controls to your reports the same way you add them to forms.
- In Design View, click the Design tab.
- Click the Controls button and select the control button you want to add.
- Click and drag where you want your control to appear on the report.
The control appears on your report.
