When you create a report, you can either use the Report Wizard to assist you or create the report yourself. In this example, you will use the Report Wizard to create your query and basic report layout.
Launch Reports Builder (or, if already open, choose File > New > Report).
In the Welcome or New Report dialog box, select Use the Report Wizard, then click OK.
If the Welcome page displays, click Next.
On the Report Type page, select Create Paper Layout Only, then click Next.
On the Style page, type a Title for your report, select Group Above, then click Next.
On the Data Source page, click SQL Query, then click Next.

SELECT statement in the Data Source definition field:
SELECT ALL DEPARTMENTS.DEPARTMENT_ID, EMPLOYEES.FIRST_NAME, EMPLOYEES.LAST_ NAME, EMPLOYEES.JOB_ID, EMPLOYEES.SALARY, JOBS.JOB_TITLE FROM DEPARTMENTS, EMPLOYEES, JOBS WHERE ((DEPARTMENTS.DEPARTMENT_ID = EMPLOYEES.DEPARTMENT_ID) AND (EMPLOYEES.JOB_ID = JOBS.JOB_ID)) ORDER BY DEPARTMENTS.DEPARTMENT_ID
Note:You can enter this query in any of the following ways:
Copy and paste the code from the provided text file called
graphics_code.txt into the Data Source definition field.
Click Query Builder to build the query without entering any code manually.
Type the code in the Data Source definition field.
