Reports can also summarize and analyze the information in your database. For example, a report might tell you which of your employees had used the most sick days for the past year. Here are just a few examples of how reports work well for presenting information:
- Formatting Options: Change the type, size, and color of the fonts used in a report or add lines, boxes, and graphics.
- Sorting and Grouping Options: Reports are great for summarizing and organizing information. For example, you could create a report to total sales by day, week, or month.
- Combine Data from Linked Tables: One report can display data from several related tables or queries.
