How do I create an Access report that presents multiple tables from the same dataset?

Hi Access Gurus,

I have a question.  I have a large table of data, but I want to create 3-4 tables in a report that uses that dataset and group the data accordingly.  For example, if I have a table that contains grocery store purchases of products, I want to do grouping by products (milk, eggs) and do it by grocery stores, but I also want to include a report that contains total spend on the same report page.  I'm having trouble doing this with the grouping function in Access.  Is there an Access trick that I am unaware of, or is there VBA that can do this.

The sub report function does not seem to do this because it presents all of the data at once. (ie, you would see all of the spend for all of the grocery stores on one page instead of being able to break it out by grocery store.  Basically I want to be able to have 4 queries from the same dataset that is brought into the report and these tables would present this data.

The report would look like this:

Grocery Store A

Table #1
Store Location, Square Footage, Manager Name

Table #2
Product # of products
Milk 3 Gallons
Eggs 3 Cartons

Table #3
Product Total Spend$
Milk $20.00
Eggs #3.00

Thanks,

Can I do this for an Access report?  In Access Report properties, it only lets me select one table or query.  Can I have the Access report select this form in its property?
