The previous example showed how to create a simple report by using the report expert. In order to better understand the layout of reports and the purpose of the various band types, we will now create a report from scratch without the report expert. This example is more abstract than the last one.
Step 1: Create a new report
Step 2: Database setup
Step 3: Insert a detail band
Step 4: Add a group band
Step 5: Page header, title band and summary band
