Printing Records

You can print records using one of the following methods:

  • Select File > Print... from the main menu;
  • Select Queries > Print Query Result from the main menu;
  • Create a button on a form/toolbar with the Print Records action.

To print records, it is necessary to create at least one Report Style defining how records should be printed on the paper.
