Although it is generally most efficient to get started with most reports by using the Report Wizard, you should understand how to create a new report in Design view. To create a report without using a wizard, you click Reports in the Objects list and then double-click the Create Report in Design View icon. The Report Design window appears. You must then set the record source of the report to the table or query on which you want to base the report. Another way to create a report in Design view is to click Reports in the Objects list and then click New to open the New Report dialog box. Then you click Design View and use the drop-down list to select the table or query on which you want to base the report; then you click OK, and the Report Design window appears.
