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)
