I have 4 Tables
(Students, Test_MA, Test_RA, Test_WE) with a common relationship on StudentID between all of them.

I would like to create a report that would by each student (ID, Name) Print out their record for each test type which are stored in the other 3 tables under each test type's own heading.

Is there a way to do this?

Please assist. Thank you I am using Access 2003

Best Wishes.

Create a query using the student id to link the tables. Use the query as the source for your report.

I have 3 queries, one for each of Test_MA, Test_RA, Test_WE however since a student might have taken more instances of one test than the others is there a way to use 3 queries in 1 report so that I do not have a list of permutations of the three tests. So that I may group the appropriately?

Use the three queries to form one more query to get the results you are looking for. Use the final query as the source of your report.

Ok Thank you for your help so far.

What I have done to try and simplify my database is move all the records into one table and have a key for each of them to signal which test type it is.

What I would like to have happen in my report is to have each test type appear with its own heading,

As Score1 on MA has one title, on WE has another title, and on RA is yet another title.

In addition WE tests use more fields than RA and MA tests; and I would like the appropriate end user friendly descriptive headings to be used and for tests where certain fields are not used, I would like to not have the headings/fields shown. How can I do this?
