Overview

The Report format tab contains a number of sections that you can use to format you report.

Each of these sections is described below.

 Data

Option

Description

Style

To format the data values contained in your report select the custom style option and apply the font, size etc that you wish to use.

Row Shading

Selecting Alternating row shading will change the shading for every second row of data in your table report.

Alternate Row Colour

Choose the colour you wish to apply for the alternate row shading.

Row Highlight

Use default or custom formatting to apply a row highlight when the user hovers the mouse over the report.

Row Highlight Colour

Provides the row colour as a mouse rolls over it making it easy to identify rows in very wide reports.

Header Lock

This keeps the Headers of the table (either Column Titles or Row Titles) in place when the report scrolls on the dashboard.

Column Lock

This keeps the first column of the table displayed when horizontal scrolling is used on the dashboard.

Cell Height

Define the height of the table rows in pixels if desired. (Optional)

Cell Padding

Define the space between the text in each cell and the cell border in pixels if desired. (Optional)

Cell Spacing

Define the space between each cell in pixels if desired. (Optional)

Records Per Page

Define the number of rows displayed on each page of the report.
If you have a very long report you can break the report into smaller pages by setting the records per page limit. For example if your report has 200 records in it and the Records Per Page is set to 50 you will have 4 pages in your report and a scroll option to navigate through them.
This is also available for section reports but is treated differently – in this case you would edit the section and apply the break on a specific section.
