Templates for report builder

Postby jmeyers » Fri Aug 19, 2011 7:59 pm

Hi,
So i have a database from which i'm generating maybe 10 reports. They all need to have the same header and footer.
I've found hints about a template capability, first in the wizard's last page, where only 'default' is available, and second in the help file, but i can't find anything about how to create these templates, add them to the wizard's list, or apply them manually in design view. how do i do that, or am i imagining this functionality exists? thanks.

This is not supported in the present versions (ORB 1.2.x).
You can create your "template" in design view and use as start of new report, only manually creating copy.

How do you do that? I am trying to create this "template" report.

I have information which is updated daily. It needs to go into the same report format. My problem is every time I have new data, I have to create a new table, which means I have to create a new report. There has to be a simple solution for this.

Right click on existing report, select copy, move mouse to empty place, out of report name.
Right click on empty place within report pane, select Paste, add new name, and OK.
