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.
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.
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.
Page Footer: The Page Footer contains text that appears at the bottom of each page of a report, such as page numbers.
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.
