Opening and Viewing Reports
If you’ve spent any time whatsoever in Access, you know the drill for
opening a so-called object. Follow these steps to open a report:
1. In the Navigation pane, select the Reports group.
You see the names of reports you created.
2. Double-click a report name or right-click a name and choose Open
from the shortcut menu.
The report appears in Report view.
To update a report so it includes recently added data, go to the Home tab
and click the Refresh All button.
Tweaking a Report
As I mention at the start of this chapter, Access offers a bunch of complex
tools for changing the layout and appearance of a report. If you’re
courageous and have lots of time on your hands, you’re invited to take these tools
in hand and go to it. In the Reports group of the Navigation pane, right-click
a report and choose Layout View on the shortcut menu. Your report appears
in Layout view, as shown in Figure 5-2. In this view, using tools on the Report
Layout Tools tabs, you can tweak your report’s appearance.
