• Click the Close button for the Client Query to remove the query results from the screen.
If I want to use this query in the future, do I need to save the query?
Normally you would. The one exception is a query created by the wizard. The wizard automatically saves the query
After you have created and saved a query, you can use it in a variety of ways:
• To view the results of the query, open it by right-clicking the query in the Navigation
pane and clicking Open on the shortcut menu.
• To print the results with the query open, click the Ofﬁ ce Button, point to Print on
the Ofﬁ ce button menu, and then click Quick Print on the Print submenu.
• If you want to change the design of the query, right-click the query and then click
Design View on the shortcut menu to open the query in Design view.
• To print the query without ﬁ rst opening it, be sure the query is selected in the
Navigation pane and then click the Ofﬁ ce Button, point to Print on the Ofﬁ ce
button menu, and then click Quick Print on the Print submenu.
You can switch between views of a query by using the View button (Figure 2–5).
Clicking the arrow at the bottom of the button produces the View button menu as shown
in the ﬁ gure. You then click the desired view in the menu. The two views you will use in
this chapter are Datasheet view (see the results) and Design view (change the design). You
also can click the top part of the button, in which case, you will switch to the view
identiﬁ ed by the icon on the button. In the ﬁ gure, the button contains the icon for Design view,
so clicking the button would change to Design view. For the most part, the icon on the
button represents the view you want, so you can usually simply click the button.
