How to: Preview a Report Design (Visual Studio Reporting Tools for Microsoft Dynamics AX)
You can preview a report design to be sure that it looks the way that you intended. You do not have to save a report design to preview it. You can preview a new design, or you can preview the modifications made to an existing design. The following procedure explains how to preview a report design.
If your report uses data methods, the assemblies that contain the data methods must be built before you can preview the report. For more information, see How to: Build a Reporting Project (Visual Studio Reporting Tools for Microsoft Dynamics AX).
To preview a report design
In Model Editor, expand the node for the report that you want to work with.
Expand the Designs node for the report.
Right-click the design that you want to preview, and then click Preview.
The Preview window has two tabs: a Parameters tab and a Report tab. The Parameters tab lists any parameters that have been defined for the report. For more information about parameters, see How to: Define a Report Parameter (Visual Studio Reporting Tools for Microsoft Dynamics AX). The Report tab displays the report. Any errors that are encountered are displayed in the Error List window.
