Introduction

Most reports are organised as tabulated, indented, or simple lists, but Narrative Reports employ Narrative Report Fact Sentence Templates to produce natural language sentences. Very few reports include Witness Facts. This article summarises the characteristics of the standard report types.

With a Report window open (using the Publish menu or Publish > Publish Tool FInder… menu) pressing the F1 key, or clicking the Help button in its sub-windows, gives detailed advice on using the Report Window.
