Designing a Report

Last updated:


CCH Reporter allows you to run a standard report or to quickly assemble a report using the Change Report page . In the Change Report page fields and groups are added with default properties, and standard formatting is applied.

If your needs are more specific, CCH Reporter allows you to customise a report using the Report Designer window. Here you can edit each and every property of a field within a report, you can insert graphics and you can build mathematical calculations to meet your own specific needs. The functionality is almost unlimited in the Report Designer window.
