Applying styles to tabular reports

Format the column header, rows, and cells of your report to suit your preferences. Choose the Normal state for the default appearance and the Hover state to preview styles on hovering.

  2. Row settings: Adjust the Font size, Font color, Font weight, Line height, Letter spacing, Border color, and Border bottom width for the rows in your tabular report.

  3. Cell customization: In the cell section, fine-tune the padding of your report cells. Utilize padding options to control overall padding and individual padding sizes on each side of the cell.

Other actions

Once you have configured and saved your report, you can perform the following actions in runtime:

  • Sort: To sort the data based on the fields in your report. To sort the report in the default order, click the None option.
  • Filter: To add the required filters to highlight items based on your chosen parameters.
  • Show/hide fields: To select which fields you want to display on the current layout.

Use case

Suppose you want to create a simplified view of the datasource named Purchase catalog. In this case, you can create a tabular report as it displays data in rows and columns in a simple table. One example of such a use case is to track sales data. Information such as the number of products sold, the total sales revenue, and the sales by product category can be used to identify trends in sales.

However, if you want to create a specific report that summarizes and analyzes data in a variety of ways including values, you can choose Pivot report.
