Access database help please Hi, can anyone tell me how I can create in Access an individualised report based on data from only one table record. i.e. I want to enter data, press a button and it populates a letter based on the information in the single record, not the whole database.

Anyone...? Should be real simple I know, but I just can't seem to figure it. Haven't used access in many moons.

Don't know, maybe excel is easier? If it is ONE table, it is basically Excel, save the table as XLS, then link the cells to various positions in your document - no I don't know how to do itbut it should be reasonably easy.

Your easiest way is to use the report wizard or similar, but if its one table then using it as a Word mailmerge document would be the best/quickest method

Access is a bit more complicated than explaining in a messageboard, but it has a great onboard help :-)
