New to Access reports. How would easily create an Access report based on an example report I have in Word format?  Is there an easy way to do this or do I have to put in text boxes for each line on the report.

No easy way.  You have to manually recreate it or look to using Mail Merge to push the data from Access to Word.

If you have a "perfectly" looking report in Word you have 2 options...
1. design a report on Access that resembles the Word report (easy)
2. use Word Automation (control Word from Access) to populate fields on Word with values from Access (hard)
