When using Ms access 2007

What do you think are the advantages of creating a report design (as opposed to just designing the report as you go)? How could creating a report design actually save you time when you start developing the report? How could you determine which fields should be included? Which sections? How would you determine whether there should be sorting and/or grouping in the report?

Can anyone answer these questions?

1.(and apparently also 2.) Time would be the number advantage, I would think. Once a design is created it is much faster to create a report from then on than it would be to do it from scratch each time.

3.Depends on the report. Should be fairly self explanatory.

4.See number 3
