Alison Balter at MS Access Solutions developed the application that helps us to properly service all of our members. This program handles billing, payments, tracking of jobs worked, available list, and other important data about our members. The system automates many tasks that were previously performed manually, allowing our employees to more cost-effectively use their time. This client/server system is used by employees in our Jamaica NY and New York offices. MS Access Solutions and their staff worked with us to develop the necessary specifications and design documents, and then programmed, tested, and implemented the application throughout our organization.

Creating a Report from Design View
Although you usually start most of your reports by using a Report Wizard, you should understand how to create a new report from Design view. To create a report without using a wizard, click the Report Design button in the Reports group of the Create tab. The Report Design window appears. You must then set the Record Source of the report to the table or query upon which you want the report to be based.
Working with the Report Design Window
You use the Report Design window to build and modify a report. Using this window, you can add objects to a report and modify their properties. Microsoft provides numerous Report, Report Grouping, and Control properties. By modifying these properties, you can create reports with diverse looks and functionality.
Understanding the Report Design Tools
To help you design reports, several report design tools are available, including the Ribbon, Property Sheet, Field List, and Sorting and Grouping windows. Three tabs are also available to make developing and customizing your reports easier: Design, Arrange, and Page Setup. The Design tab contains tools that allow you to group and total your report, add controls to your report, add existing fields to the report, and view and modify the property sheet associated with the report. The Arrange tab is specifically designed to help you customize the look of your report. It includes tools for applying an AutoFormat to a report, aligning and positioning control on the report, and sizing report objects.
The Properties, Toolbox, Field List, and Sorting and Grouping windows are all designed as toggles. This means that buttons on the Report Design toolbar alternately hide and show these valuable windows. If you have a high-resolution monitor (or multiple monitors), you might want to leave the windows open at all times. If you have a low-resolution monitor, you need to get a feel for when it’s most effective for each window to be opened or closed.
Adding Fields to the Report
You can most easily add fields to a report by using the Field List window. With the Field List window open (see Figure 6.11), click and drag a field from the field list onto the appropriate section of the report. You can add several fields at one time, just as you can do with forms. Use the Ctrl key to select noncontiguous fields, use the Shift key to select contiguous fields, or double-click the field list’s title bar to select all the fields; then click and drag them to the report as a unit.
Selecting, Moving, Aligning, and Sizing Report Objects
Microsoft Access offers several techniques to help you select, move, align, and size report objects. Different techniques are effective in different situations. Experience will tell you which technique you should use and when. The steps for selecting, moving, aligning, and sizing report objects are quite similar to performing the same tasks with form objects. The techniques are covered briefly in this chapter; for a more detailed explanation of each technique, refer to Chapter 5, “What Every Developer Needs to Know About Forms.”
