Bamberg to Vienna

Will be in Bamberg this summer and need to take a train to Vienna Austria. When I search on the Bahn website; it says cannot make a reservation without a ticket but doesn't show how to purchase a ticket. Will be traveling June 10. Any information on how to do tickets online or would it be possible to wait and purchase them in Bamberg?

Well, you do not actually need a reservation at all. (And actually, I don't know how to buy one, because I never have.)

How are you planning to get your tickets? There might be discount tickets available, but you have to wait until three months prior to your trip. Then, you should be able to buy them online. And that's what you should do, because they tend to be much less expensive that way.

Are you planning to do any sightseeing between Bamberg and Vienna? (Nürnberg, Munich, Salzburg)

If not, just book a flight from Nürnberg to Vienna. Nürnberg airport is very conveniently reached by subway.

It is simply too early to buy tickets - they are released 3 months ahead. Of course you can just buy them in Bamberg but if you buy them well ahead of time you have a good chance for very significant savings.

You can buy tickets at earliest 92 days in advance. Bamberg to Vienna is available from EUR 39. If you like you can buy with your ticket also a seat reservation (+ EUR 4,50). Seat reservation is however not compulsory. As a single traveler on this route and with your travel date you'll do well without.
