Print reportPrint report templates


When you have created a print report template you can use it as a basis for detailed print report.

Typically, templates contain the contents of the header and footer that are used in all or several other print reports.

It is also possible to define re-occurring fields in the area of table data.

If you make any changes to the print report template, this has an effect on all print reports connected to this template.

This means that the changes are applied to all of the other print reports.
