Overview of the layout process
To lay out a report, follow these general steps:
*Identify the sections in the report.
*For each section, insert either:
*A single report element, such as a text element
*A container element to organize multiple report elements in a section
*For sections that contain multiple elements, insert report elements in each container. You can insert containers within a container to create nested sections. Preview each section as you complete it. If you wait until you finish laying out the report before verifying the output, and there are errors, it can be difficult to determine which part of the report causes the problems.
