Report Explorer

The Report Explorer reflects a report's structure in a tree-like form providing easy access to report elements. Additionally, the Report Explorer contains the Components node, which displays non-visual report components such as data objects created when binding a report to a data source. You can also use the Report Explorer to manage styles and formatting rules available for a report.
