New Layout/Report (New Layout/Report assistant)
In this panel of the New Layout/Report assistant, you specify the database table this layout will access, a name for the layout, the type of layout that you want to create, and a default view for the layout.
Note  You may want to review the following Help topics before creating the layout: Creating and managing layouts and reports, Considerations when you create a Report layout, Printing labels, and Printing envelopes.
For Show records from, choose the table that contains the records that you want this layout to display.
For Layout Name, type a descriptive name for the layout.
The layout name automatically appears in the menus used for choosing layouts, such as the Layout pop-up menu. (To change this setting, see Managing layouts.)
Depending on the type you choose, additional options may become available.
If you choose Custom Device, you can change the value (from 1 to 32000 points) for Width, Height, or both. The custom values you enter will be used for all custom device layouts until you change the values. (The default custom values for portrait orientation are width: 800, height: 1145; and for landscape orientation are width: 1280, height: 665.)
For more information about each layout type, see About layout types.
If you chose Computer or Touch Device, you can then choose the view in which you want records displayed or choose to create a report.
Your layout will be displayed only in the view you selected. To display the layout in all views, do not choose a view in this panel. After you close the assistant, you can choose additional views for the layout using the Layout Setup dialog box (see Setting up form, list, and table views for a layout).
For layouts that will display on computers or touch devices, click Finish. Layouts in Form View and List View are displayed in Layout mode. Layouts in Table View are displayed in Browse mode (and the Modify Table View dialog box appears if there are fields defined in the database).
You can then add or change fields, objects, and other embellishments to your layout. See About defining database fields, Working with data in Table View, and Drawing and inserting objects on a layout.
For labels, vertical labels, envelopes, or reports, click Continue. You see the next panel in the assistant.
