Another way of displaying data in a database program is to create reports. A report displays information from tables or queries and allows you to perform calculations – useful if you wanted to calculate the total invoice for a customer order. When you design a report you need to tell it what fields from the table or query you want to display. You can also add other information like headings, totals and dates on the report, which you can save and print to send out to customers. Reports are useful for providing information about data held in your database.
It is possible to use different database to pull together data to create information on a report, such as the report request for a map shown in the picture below.
