Setting the report type

You can make two different types of reports—tabular or columnar.

By default, the Report Wizard creates a tabular report with one column. To create a report with more than one column or fields displayed on the same row as the attribute value, use these steps:

  1. Open a report in the Report Designer.
  2. Click the Detail section to display the section's element properties.
  3. Under Data, change the ColumnCount to the number of columns you want to display.
  4. Click the Group section to adjust column properties for the groups in your report.
  5. Set ColumnLayout to True to use the same column layout as specified in the Detail section.
  6. Set KeepTogether and ColumnGroupKeepTogether to True to make sure the attributes of a record are not split between different columns or pages of the report.
