report with different structure

hey... i have a quarterly report that i'm working on where each of the 12 or
so pages is completely different from the other. all are based on basically
the same info (ergo, the same query) but the layout of the controls are
wildly different from each other. right now, i've created each page of this
report as its own report, just to get me started somewhere. what's the best
way to open these 12 reports so that they all show up at the same time and
can be easily viewed/printed without having to do them one at a time? thanks.

One option is to create a section for each of the 12 pages, all based on the
same data.

1. Open your report in design view.

2. Open the Sorting And Grouping dialog (View menu).

3. Select your primary key field, and in the lower pane of the dialog, set
Yes for both the Group Header and Group Footer sections. Access adds 2 more
sections to the report.

4. On the next row of the Sorting'n'Group ing dialog, choose the primary key
field again, and again set Yes for the Group Header and Footer. You now have
2 more sections.

5. Repeat 4 more times.

You now have 6 group headers, 6 group footers, and the detail section, for a
total of 13 sections. Since the sections are based on the primary key, they
occur for every record, so you can lay out the 12 pages of your report, one
section each, and have one to spare.

If you prefer, you can probably fit 2 pages to each section, but the
separate sections just makes it easy to see where the page breaks are.

I'm attempting to create a database which will take information from one (perhaps two) tables and utilize that information to return queries to a report designed in Excel.

Hello, I have a situation with MS Access 2000 in which I need to display report data in spreadsheet orientation (much like a datasheet view for a form).

The row data will also come from the same database. So in this case, I will have a main report and a subreport. I've already tried...

tblCourses one to many to tblEvents. A course may have an intro workshop (a type of event), a mid course workshop, a final exam. Or any combination. Or something different in the future. At the moment the printed output is usually going to Word. It's turning into an unholy mess, because I'm having to prepare umpteen different Word templates, and the queries that drive them, depending on what events a course has.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
