When designing a report, consider the point you are trying to make, the intended audience, and the level of detail needed.
You can create a report that displays only some of the fields in a table by using the Report wizard. The report can be sorted and grouped to summarize the data in a table in a meaningful way.
You can refine a report in Layout view by manipulating its controls and setting its properties. You can also format the controls to structure and highlight data.
In Print Preview, you can see how the report will look when printed and make adjustments before you print.
