Queries allow you to group records together that have something in common. You can then save this query and use it elsewhere in the system. For example, you can run a report on just these records. 

Examples of queries are: All constituents who gave over $100 in the last calendar year, all vendors who have been paid over $500 or all students who scored at least a C in the last semester for Algebra 1.

Reports analyze data. They are designed to calculate and total data and present data in a more formal design.

Examples of reports are: A Top Donors report, an Aged Accounts Payable report and a Class roster report.
