What is the difference between queries and reports?
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.
