Named List Report in V3

Post by martinmitchell » 02 Jan 2012 13:36

I have a named list with three columns 'Records', 'Dates', 'Relationship to Root'. I want to produce a Report with those details, and from that to produce a PDF file (with CutePDF Writer).
With the Named List pane open,>Reports>Miscellaneous Reports>List Report>'title of list', my report appears headed by a relevant general note (fine),followed by each Name, Dates, Record ID - not what I hoped for.
So far 'Getting the Most..' and the forums have not helped.
Am I missing a trick, or is it not possible for someone of my limited ability?
I have wondered if the Named List Pane could be copied onto the clipboard and pasted into Word. Can't do that, either.
Help, Please??
Martin.

With FH V3 your options are limited.

I suggest you start with the Named List Members Standard Query.

Save it as a Custom Query and add the Columns to the Query rather than the Named List.
In the Row Filter you can specify the Named List to eliminate the prompt.

You can save the Result Set to a CSV spreadsheet file and print the PDF from that.
