Designing Reports

You design a report by first defining the dataset and then designing the visual layout. You design the dataset for reports in Report Dataset Designer of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment. When designing the layouts, there are two different types: RDLC report layouts and Word report layouts. You design RDLC report layouts in Visual Studio Report Designer. You design Word report layouts in Word. After you design a report's dataset and layout, you can make it available for running and printing in Dynamics NAV client applications.
