Performance and scalability: Make title area always aligned with data area in web report

  1. Background Have you ever experienced this case? When designing a web report, the column number of data area is less than that of title area. But after expansion, the column number of data area is much bigger than that of title area in display. As a result, the web report seems irregular. Example Take a cross report with horizontal expansion as an example. In design, the data area may have only 4 columns, while the title area has 5 columns. After expansion, the data area has 7 columns and title is at wrong position. This brings down the neatness and beauty of the report greatly. How to make title area always aligned with data area? We can calculate the column number of data area after horizontal expansion and move the corresponding grids in title area right. Then, which ones to move? How to solve the spare area? Fill up blank cells or extend some cells? All these problems are difficult to be solved. Solution As a real Excel-like reporting tool, RAQ Report provides a perfect solution to this problem. Not matter how data area expands, with the combination of stretch rules and cell extension, RAQ report can keep specified cells center, right, or left easily.

  2. Hi; Another alternative you should look at is Windward Reports. With Windward you design your reports in Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. By using Excel for the template design you have full control over the title placement. thanks - dave
