Reports can be designed and formatted in the same way as we do with forms in Microsoft access database . When you create a report, four new tabs show up in the Ribbon particularly for working with reports.

Report Header and Footer

The report header and footer are shown just once in the report.

The report header is shown at the topmost part of the first page, and the report footer is shown at the lowest portion on the last page.
