Making Reports Look Pretty
Deleting fields
If a report displays data that you no longer want to see, you can delete that
field from your report by following these steps:
1. Display your report in Design view.
Follow the steps in the sidebar “Switching to Design view.”
2. Right-click the field you want to delete.
Access highlights your chosen field and displays a pop-up menu.
3. Click Delete.
Access deletes your chosen field.
You can press Ctrl+Z right away to retrieve any fields you may have
deleted accidentally.
Making Reports Look Pretty
Reports can be useful for displaying data, but go one step farther and make
your reports look visually pleasing as well. One way to change the
appearance of a report is to use a predefined theme, which can instantly add color
to make even the dullest report look interesting.
Applying themes
A theme simply rearranges the appearance of your entire report so it doesn’t
look like a boring list of text and numbers. To apply a theme to a report,
follow these steps:
1. Display your report in Design view.
Follow the steps in the sidebar “Switching to Design view.”
2. Click the Design tab.
3. Click the Themes icon in the Themes group.
A menu appears, listing all the available themes (see Figure 18-9).
4. Move the mouse pointer over a theme.
Access shows how your report will look with the selected theme.
