Working with the report toolbars

The main report interaction and functionality is conducted by using the report toolbars. These toolbars are used mainly to apply additional functionalities to the data in the report, format the report area, and perform advanced tasks of drill and data merging.

By using these toolbars, we can address various types of tasks ranging from a simple task such as formatting the table headers to advanced capabilities such as filtering, sorting, creating calculations, and editing the query. The toolbars are grouped according to the main functionality subjects and structured from the subtab areas. The toolbars are as follows:
