In this section we are going to get our heads around the structural features when designing a Report Run Template.
Structural Features of a Report Run
Each time your begin a new report, we call this a REPORT RUN. Each report run can contain multiple FORMATS. For example you might have one format for most students in your school, and a separate format for students with an individual Learning Plan. Each format contains a series of SECTIONS or pages. Each section contains a series of items that make up that section. These items are what will appear on the printed report. Overall these four structural layers makes up a single report run. It is interesting to note that once schools have designed their report template, this template can be copied an re-used for other report runs in the future.
