Updating the Report Header

    Update the Report Header

    Ensure you are in the Report Designer view.

    1. Use the horizontal scroll bar to locate what you want to update.

    2. Click the logo and press [Delete] to remove it.

    3. Click the Picture tool in the Toolbox to select it.

    4. Move your cursor anywhere into the work area of the report header, and use click and drag to create a picture box.


    The size of the picture box can be adjusted at any time…aim for approximately 5cm wide and I cm high, or adjust it later.
    1. Expand the Properties area so that you can see all the properties of the picture box you just inserted.

    2. In the Properties area, click in the field called Image and click the Ellipsis button to browse for a picture.

    3. Locate an image file (for example bmp, gif, jpg) on your system, select it and click Open.
      The image now displays in the ReportHeader area.


    The size of the picture box dictates the size of the image; you cannot resize an image within CCH Reporter. It follows that you will need to edit and resize an image outside of CCH Reporter if adjustments are required.
    1. In the Properties area, expand the Location property to reveal the X and Y coordinates of the image’s top left hand corner and edit the values accordingly.

    2. Select an item then the required placement for it using the Alignment option in the Properties area. Hold down the [Shift] key whilst you select items to align all selected items at once.


    When aligning items, the last selected item dictates the location of the aligned items. There are a number of alignment tools; whilst their use is optional, careful alignment produces a more professional looking report.
