So I’m fairly new to Access in general (the last time I used it was in high school) and I want to create a report for my database that summarises the incomings and outgoings of an organisation I volunteer with.
I haven’t fully built the database yet, but here’s a snippet example of what I have. Sorry for the bad formatting, I’m typing this on mobile.

LABEL DATE AMOUNT
A 01/01/2011 50
B 02/01/2011 23
C 03/01/2011 -35
E 04/01/2011 -56
D 05/01/2011 73
And so on.

I’m trying to create a report that takes this information and groups it into categories based on their value like this:

***
COMMENT:
(Some form of text here that I can type)

>PAGE BREAK<

TOTAL INCOME: +146
A 01/01/2011 50
B 02/01/2011 23
D 05/01/2011 73

TOTAL EXPENDITURE: -91
C 03/01/2011 -35
E 04/01/2011 -56

NET CHANGE: +55

***
If possible I would also like to be able to filter this by date as I’m required to produce these reports every quarter.

@LycanDragon Well building reports and filtering along with other actions are is something relatively easy...just build the database..fill it with data...use the Wizard to create the Report and if an obstacle pops up we are here.

Keep in mind that while a lot of tasks can be made via Wizards/mouse clicks...the real power of Access is VBA..so lets say that Impossible is nothing.
