Templates

Use Word, HTML, and PDF templates to format reports

Templates specify the default formatting and fixed content for a report. Templates can also contain holes (blanks) that your report program can fill with dynamic content. Report viewers, such as Microsoft® Word or Adobe® Acrobat®, apply the format specifications to format the report.
