Access reports are powerful and flexible. Learn how to create a query and then a grouped report using the wizard. Modify the report design after the wizard is done to make it look better. There will be another video to explain how to put the final polish on the report, rename it, and add it to a menu form. Download the START and SOLUTION sample databases.

Video Steps

1. Download the START and SOLUTION sample databases (zip file)

SimpleGroupedReport_START_SOLUTION_D.zip

2. Open the START sample database

3. Create a Query to Line Up Data for Report

4. Use the Report Wizard to create a Grouped Report


Source is the query created in step 3

5. Group by year, month, day, then product category

6. Sort by product name then descending amount

7. Specify the amount to be summed

8. Choose Outline layout

9. Modify the Report Design


Add, delete, resize and move controls; show and use different report sections; spacing and boundaries; calculated controls;  formatting and properties; Report View and Print Preview.

10. Compare what you did to the SOLUTION database
