Supporting report sections (bands): Page header, Report header, Group break, Group header, Detail, Group footer, Report footer, and Page footer. Each band can contain an unlimited number of Frames to represent information.

 

·

Frame contents may be a text string(s), or a formula. This is similar to Microsoft Excel usage: if the frame contents begins with the equal sign "=" then it means the rest is the formula to evaluate. In that way you can reference the only one variable as well as the expression containing as many variables and functions as you want.

 

·

Use borders around the Frames to make them standout. For example, you can place a border around dollar totals at the bottom of reports. You can also use all the Frames with borders and join Frames side-by-side to get grid-style report. Frame borders may have varying thickness and color. Also the whole frame can be filled by selected color.

 

·

You may select a font typeface, size, style and color for the whole report or report section as well as for individual frame. Use different fonts and font types to make key data stand apart from other data.
