Report Wizard

The Report Wizard allows you to add a report using one of the following templates:

  • Empty Report
    Creates a new blank report that is not bound to a data source. Choose this option to design your report without using the wizard.

  • Data-bound Report
    Allows you to connect the created report to a data source and configure basic report layout settings (optional).

  • Template Report
    Enables you to create a new report based on available predefined templates.

  • Label Report
    Runs the Label Wizard enabling you to create labels, badges or price tags by selecting from hundreds of customizable layouts.

  • Inherited Report
    Creates a new report by inheriting its layout from another report.

Use one of the following ways to invoke the Report Wizard:

Expanded Use the Item Templates
