Lesson 4: Running a Matrix Report (Report Builder 1.0)
In this tutorial, you have been working in Report Builder design mode up until now. In design mode, you are working with a representation of the data, not the data that exists in the underlying database. In this lesson, you will run the report to view the actual data in the report layout that you just designed.
To run the report
In Report Builder design mode, click the Run Report button on the Report toolbar.
Alternatively, on the View menu, click Run Report.
The report you created is displayed in Report Builder run mode. In run mode, you can print, save, group, and sort your data, and export the report as a different file type. You can switch back to design mode to continue refining your report.
To return to design mode
In Report Builder run mode, click the Design Report button on the Report toolbar.
Alternatively, on the View menu, click Design Report.
The report you created is displayed in Report Builder design mode again.
You have successfully completed the Creating a Basic Matrix Report tutorial. You can filter, group, sort, and format the contents of a matrix report just as you can a tabular report.
