Creating Reports

Today we generated a report as if we were a real estate agent. We narrowed down the properties that our client was searching for and created a query to display properties with 3 bedrooms, that were less than $175,000, and had three bedrooms. We then learned to create an attractive report that displayed this information as if we were presenting it to our client.
