[Solved] Creating report after modifying layout?

Postby mherby909 » Thu Jun 19, 2008 8:03 pm

so i created a report in the report wizard, and the very last step i have to choose between modifying the layout or creating the report now. i need to modify the layout, but after i do so, i don't know how to import the information from the query i'm using. this probably isn't tough, but i'm a novice. thanks!

If all you are changing is the layout then all you need do is save the report and then run it.

The SQL statement generated form the query you selected was moved into a hidden control on the report..it is still there.

save it, close it. Go to the reports section of the base window and open it...double click or right click and select open instead of edit.

Not via the wizard no - you can do hand changes only - but you can change everything by hand pretty much

There are a couple of topics on the board that cover the different hidden controls and how they are used.
