Page Report Studio Logi JReport Server Guide v15
Page Report Studio provides a dynamic report view at the client side. It provides support for many features. You can dynamically modify - filter, search, sort and drill - reports to obtain unique and personal data views. Page Report Studio also supports a web design feature, allowing you to create reports using report oriented data structures based on predefined business views, save your custom modifications to the reports and export the report results to all supported output formats.
A page report can contain multiple report tabs. However for most ad hoc reporting you should try to use web reports first as the resulting reports are much more efficient and easier to change later. The main advantage of a page report is being able to build a banded report; while in most cases to use any of the advanced features of a banded report such as subreports you need to build the report with Logi JReport Designer.
Page reports published to Logi JReport Server or created in Page Report Studio are stored in the server resource system and follow the server resource and version management rules such as archive policy and permission setting. Logi JReport Designer supports creating, opening, and editing of page reports as well. For details, see "Page Reports" in the Logi JReport Designer User's Guide.
Page Report Studio has two views: Basic View and Interactive View. Basic View provides viewing-oriented functions only and Interactive View provides additional editing and analytic functions. When accessing Page Report Studio by creating new page reports, Interactive View is applied by default; when accessing by running existing page reports, which view is applied depends on the way you use to run the reports. You can switch between the two views by selecting the corresponding view link on the toolbar if it is available.
