Chapter 6. Creating the Monthly Totals Report

Now comes the fun part—and the reason you’ve chosen to painstakingly record your trips in a database. We’re going to create reports to summarize the data. Each report can be set up in the New Layout/Report wizard (with which you’re already very familiar). Like other FileMaker reports, the reports you’ll create can be printed or viewed onscreen in Preview mode.

We’ll create scripts in Chapter 8 so you can generate the two reports: the Mileage Report (monthly totals) and the Destination breakdown report.

Creating the Monthly Totals Report

The Mileage Report produces a separate page for each month.
