Hello again from 8-week noob.
I am looking at a very in-tuh-rhes-tingu report where the output is seven summary reports, two per page. The current design first extracts A SINGLE RECORD with a zillion fields into which said extract program has placed all the summary line totals for each report. The ‘report’ program writes the headings and summary lines for each report after calculating cross and report totals for each report.
Please note that all reports on this site are done in ‘structured mode’ not ‘report mode’ - for whatever reason.
My question: If I have to update this report - which means I will rewrite it if I can - assuming I can create DETAIL records with a different format for each report by using a report-type field and redefining the record, will I be able to generate multiple SUMMARY reports on the same page from these records USING Natural’s REPORT features (in Structured Mode) to do summary, cross and report totals ?
Thanks for your help.
