Postby Bazsl1 » Thu Mar 17, 2016 12:34 am

Is there any way to change properties of an existing report such as the sort fields? Thanks.

Ciao, which report? Native or Report Builder?

Native. However, I was about to post another question asking if I should use Oracle Report Builder instead of the native reporting tool. My concern is the warning on the Oracle Report builder page that it has not been changed since 2007 and may not work with current versions of OO. On the other hand, I would like something with more features than the native reporting tool. What is your advice? Thanks.

Native or not the reports are not very developed in Open Office. Report Builder is not updated for many years and has many bugs.
I use them both.
You can change the properties of a native report viewing the Report Navigator and by right-clicking on the branches of this.

Thanks Charlie. How do you switch between the two? If I have Report Builder installed I cannot find a way to create a new native report unless I disable Report Builder in Tools > Extensions.

Hi!

There you have several examples about changing report properties, but without ORB tool.

Bye!
