Use the Report Designer to create and modify reports. When the Report Designer window is active, the Report Controls toolbar is available.
Information on the Report Controls toolbar is available in Report Controls Toolbar.
A separator bar is located at the bottom of each band. The name of the band type appears on the bar next to a blue arrow, which indicates that the band is above, not below, the bar.
You can add the following bands to your report.
|Column Header||Once per column||Column title|
|Column Footer||Once per column||Summary, totals|
|Group Header||Once per group||Preface to following data|
|Group Footer||Once per group||Calculated values for group data|
|Title||Once per report||Title, date, or page number, logo, and box around the title|
|Summary||Once per report||Grand totals, and text such as Grand Totals|
The Report Designer has a vertical and horizontal ruler you use to more precisely position objects in the bands.
The scale for the ruler is determined by your system measurement settings. You can change from the system default scale (inches or centimeters) to pixels from within FH. If you want to change to the system default, change the measurement setting for your operating system.
From the Format menu, choose Set Grid Scale.
The Set Grid Scale dialog box is displayed.
Information on the Set Grid Scale dialog box is available in Set Grid Scale.
- Select Pixels, and then choose
The ruler scale is set to pixels, and the position indicator in the status bar (if Show Position is checked on the View menu) also displays positions in pixels.
