How to have new added field appear automatically on the report in Ms Access

Last Modified: 2019-11-20
SELECT tblSupplier. *
FROM tblSupplier;

Open in new window

If I create an Ms access query like that it means that whatever field I create will be on the query no matter what, the same goes for deleting on the opposite.

Question 1

What should I do to achieve the same behavior on the report, example I DO NOT want to be adding the new fields on the report manually whenever a new field is created, it should be automatically appear on the report without being added manually as it were on the query?

Question 2

Since such type of a query design does not allow filters such that blank fields should NOT TURN UP on the report, is there a way to do the filters at report level to avoid blank field & Zeros?

Sorry to bother you I’m not a full-time trained IT person, I’m a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant, I have only talk myself programming because of the nature of my job. For example, its not possible to competently audit an IT project if one has no clue about simple IT design & programming, that is the reason why I’m here.

Kindly take the above into account.

However thank you to all of you , you contributed a lot to my learning process.
