    Deleting rows deletes all columns in my report

    I am using Access 2013. I have a report in Layout View.

    1. If I right click on a single cell, then choose Delete, the entire column deletes, instead of just that cell. How do you delete only the cell?
    2. If I right click on a single cell, then choose Delete Row, all columns are deleted, instead of just that row. How do you delete only the row?

    What do you mean by delete a cell and delete a row? Why are you doing this in a report? Are you redesigning report or trying to delete records?

    Yes. I created a report. Then I decided to delete a particular cell. In another case, I also decided to delete a particular row.

    Access doesn't really have 'cells' and 'rows' on form or report, it has controls (textboxes, comboboxes, labels, etc). If you created the report with wizard, wizard 'groups' controls. In Design view, select all the controls with a left click and sweep, then right click > Layout > Remove. Now you can edit controls individually.
