Dear Experts:

I would like to learn how to customize Access sub report layout.

First of all,
I would like to see a layout as the follows:

Income                $1,240,000
Expense               $ 800,000

Instead of

Income                Expense
$1,240,000         $800,000

In addition, I would like to place both labels and textbox in the details section.  By default,  labels are placed in the header and textbox in the details.

Finally, I would like to learn how to incorporate sub reports into the main report.

Thanks a lot!

Reg.Sub report, select subform/subreport from toolbox in access report form and follow the wizard.

Thank you so much for your kind, prompt tip.

By the way, should I start from "Report" or "Blank Report" or "Report Design"?

Can I place a query, instead of a field from a table, on the report?

Thanks!

I created tons of queries to create a report.  I need to place queries, instead of table, on the report.

Thanks!

Its on you, if you are expert you can start with blank report, if novice, use wizard, but both tables and queries can be used in report/sub reports in access, if blank reports , select report properties, then data source, click on .... and crate your query here.

Thanks again!

By the way, do you any idea how to change the by-default layout (text value being placed under the label)?
________________ This is the layout I want ____________________
ncome                $1,240,000
Expense               $ 800,000

Instead of
_______________  This is the by-default layout _________________
Income                Expense
$1,240,000         $800,000t

When I clicked "Sub Report Button" ( as seen in the screen shot below), nothing happened.
I didn't see any initiation from Report Wizard.

After  clicking the Sub Report button, I clicked on the Report, and then Report Wizard showed up.  Then I chose a query. When  I clicked Report View, all I can see from the imported query was the title of the query, not labels and text values.

Should a main report and a sub-report share an attribute that may serve as a link?

I plan to put three sub-reports that do not share a link.

For instance, one report is an expense report, and the other is an income report. They do not share an attribute. But they need to be displayed on a report.

Thanks!
