Section 6What's New in Reports?
Reports share several of the same new features as forms. For example, you can work in Layout view, and you can create a form with the Quick Create option. You can work with stacked and tabular layouts, and you can use alternating background colors. In addition, reports in Microsoft Office Access 2007 sport a new Group, Sort, and Total feature. The following sections cover each of these topics in detail.
Using Quick Create to Create a Report
Just as with forms, you can use Quick Create to create a report. Here are the steps involved:
- Open the datasheet, query, form, or report on which you want the report to be based.
- Click the Create tab. Notice that you see Report under the Reports group (see Figure 85).
