Creating a Free-Form Report


You can present data in an unrestricted or free-form format using a layout of your own design.

Whereas tabular and matrix reports present data in columns and rows for the purpose of comparison across records, and graphic reports present data visually using charts and graphs, free-form reports reflect your chosen positioning of data on a page. Free-form reporting meets your needs when your goal is to present a customized picture of a data source record on each page of a report.

Note: You can create free-form reports with PDF, HTML, and Styled formats. HTML output has all report pages on one HTML page. Page breaks are retained in PDF output.
