Dear all,

I'm using MS Access 2003. I have a large database with lots of information. I can input data in MS Access but I don't know how to make a compiled report. Most importantly, I want to make a report with the exact requirements that I need in my report.

Please let me know if anyone has any instructions which will be most helpful for me. Thanks.

Excellent. Now you are able to make your own queries and also able to make constructive reports.

Yes, you can also publish your MS Access report. But for that, you need a file server where there would be a share drive or public drive.

In this public drive you have to put your MS Access software from this public drive so that other users are able to access.
Also be sure that the users should have access permission to access the software and see your report.

Cheers!
