  • Empty Report

    Creates a new blank report that is not bound to a data source. Choose this option to design your report without using the wizard.

  • Data-bound Report

    Allows you to connect the created report to a data source and configure basic report layout settings (optional).

  • Template Report

    Enables you to create a new report based on available predefined templates.

  • Label Report

    Runs the Label Wizard enabling you to create labels, badges or price tags by selecting from hundreds of customizable layouts.

  • Inherited Report

    Creates a new report by inheriting its layout from another report.
