Add Bands

Follow this process in order to create a band (formerly called a sub-band in older versions of Report Designer), which allows you to group several report elements into a single area.

  1. Drag and drop a band element into a layout band.
  2. Using the resize handles, change the size of the band to fit your specifications.
  3. Drag and drop an existing report element into the new band and position it according to your preference.
  4. Drag and drop other elements into the band as necessary.
You should now have a layout band containing several report elements. It can be resized or moved anywhere in its parent band, or cut-and-pasted into another band.
