Using the Report Designer Window

Last updated:

Overview

Whilst you may choose to start your layout in the Change Report area, once you are in the Report Designer window you are still able to add fields and add totals, although the way you approach these tasks is a little different.

  • Whilst in the Change Report page you can click the Report Designer icon,   to open the Report Designer window.
  • When you make use of a standard template, the template controls items like margins and styles. If you choose to customise these items within a layout it makes sense to set any parameters that are applied to the page first. Report settings include margins, printer settings, styles and the grid that controls the exact positioning of items on a page. Report settings are accessed via Designer > Page Setup. The icons for each category of Report Settings appear in the left hand side of the Report Settings window; click on an icon to access the available options.
