Title and Summary Sections

Posted by Mike Kerner on July 15, 2008 at 3:38pm

Since the manual and the examples don't really cover it, can you explain what the Title area is for? What's the difference between this and the Page Header or Group Header?

The Summary area makes sense to me, though.

The page header is printed at the top of every page, and the group header is printed whenever the data group expression evaluates to a different result. The title section is printed only once, at the very start of the report, just like the summary section is printed only once, at the end of the report.

Some people prefer to have their 'executive summary' right at the start of a report, so they don't have to flip to the last page to know the essentials. Other people will just put an introductory text field in there. Anyway, as I was putting in the summary section at the end, I figured I could just as well add a title section at the front :-)
