data, reports offer a similar feature when you need to get a printed copy
of the information. The main difference between a form and a report is
that you can’t edit data in a report, and you can’t paginate and get a good
paper layout with a form.
Access has powerful wizards to allow you to construct sophisticated
presentations with reports. Like a form, a report can be based on a table or
query, and it also supports layout and design views where you can add and
change controls in a manner very similar to when you are working with a
form.
Access reports also support multiple subreports, with as forms, as well as
the use of macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to enhance your
presentations. You should be careful to note the distinction between Print
Preview and report view. Print Preview is designed to show the report
layout before going to a printer, whereas report vew is for on-screen
interaction with a report, making the report work more like a form.
