Up to speed with Access 2007

Report command on Create tab, and Report Layout Tools with Format tab

New reports are really rapid.

This won't surprise you: To create a new report in Access 2007, click the Create tab and then click Report. Access bases the new report on the existing object that you already have open, or that you have selected in the Navigation Pane.

The new report opens in Layout view, and the Ribbon offers you Report Layout Tools with three tabs, Format, Arrange, and Page Setup. (These tabs appear on the Ribbon only when they can be used.) Use the commands on those tabs to change the appearance of controls and labels, or to select margins, paper size, and other printing options. Naturally, you preview the changes as you make them. See that in the practice, which is next.
