The main purpose of the Report Designer is to enable changes to the design of a 4GL application report, without modifying the standard report or using an external reporting solution. The changes are stored as personalizations. Therefore, the effort that is required to implement changes, after the standard is updated, is reduced.
You can also generate new reports that are based on a selection of fields from the application data model. These reports are generated in the extensibility package. You can personalize these reports in the Report Designer, or modify them in LN Studio.
- The Report Designer is available with LN 10.5 and later.
- Enterprise Server 10.6 is required.
- The Report Designer is only supported in LN UI.
Note: On LN 10.5 you must re-compile the reports once with Enterprise Server 10.6 to enable them for the Report Designer.
