    Does each report always represent either ONE table OR query? Can it ever
    represent more than one query (for example, a form can also have a subform
    and therefore it can represent more than one table/query at a time).

    Thanks

    Just like a form can have a subform, a report can have a subreport.

    I hope that's what you were asking.

    A form can also have a header, a detail section, and a footer.

    A report can have multiple header and detail sections.

    So you can multiple tables represented like this

    table 1
    table 2
    table 3
    table 3
    table 2
    table 2
    table 3
    table 1
    table 1
    table 2
    table 3

    That covers 90 percent of all requirements

    Sometimes you want the same tables, grouped differently.
    Subreports are useful for that:

    table 1
    table 2
    table 3
    table 2
    table 1

    table 3
    table 2
    table 3


    That covers the other 10 percent of all requirements.

    You can also have union queries, so multiple
    tables can be represented like this:

    table 1
    table 3
    table 2
    table 3
    table 1
    table 3
    table 2
    table 3

    That is only required if you have badly designed data.

    You can also use subreports to report unrelated data:

    table 1

    table 2

    table 3

    Like union queries, this is only required if you have
    badly designed data.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
