Now users can browse through reports with the convenience and ease previously associated with forms. The new, robust features for searching, finding and filtering on forms are also available on reports. You can dress up your reports, add the fancy new image controls, and still have total control over the print process.
Maybe you're wondering, why not just build an application of reports? That wouldn't work because you still need forms to edit the data. Reports are powerful tools for finding, analyzing, and disseminating information, but they do not allow data to be edited. As mentioned, the report can have a control to open a form to edit the data; then the report can be updated by using the requery method. However, attachments to reports cannot be edited unless they are saved to a new location or name.
