Title Page for Reports

I’ve been playing around with the report builder for a few hours and can’t seem to find where you set up a cover page for a report. Or maybe the front page has a table/chart combo, and the following pages has table data.

Does anyone have any information on this?

One way to do this would be to use a ‘First Only’ section:

  1. Open a new report.
  2. Create a table and drag it to the size of your page.
  3. Double-click on your Detail row.
  4. Click on ‘Standard’ on the right hand side and select ‘Add First Only’.
  5. Click on the new row and change its Column Count to 1.
  6. Drag the new row so it fills the page and create your cover page in the space.

For more complicated setups you could use a TableGroup, putting your cover page in the header row of the first table and making sure to check ‘Start on new page’ for subsequent peer tables.

The easiest way to create a cover page for a report would be to create the static page using the “Add Page” from the Pages menu option.

There are definitely a lot of tricks that can be done using components, but adding a page covers a lot of use cases.

I completely missed the new ‘Pages’ entry in the top menu :blush: That looks really useful.
