A report is a database object that displays
data from one or more tables or queries in a
format that has an appearance similar to a
printed report. You can use reports to:
Create a formatted list of information
Summarize information
Print form letters and mailing labels
The tables or queries that contain the data
used in a report are called the record source.

report that includes all the fields in the
selected table or query, uses a columnar
format, formats the report using a theme, and
includes a title with the same name as the
record source.
