- To add headers to the Report panel, drag and drop H1, H2, H3, or H4 onto the Report pane based on the desired level of indentation.
The following table lists the text elements used to format a report:
||The Header 1 element adds a first-level heading to the report definition.|
||The Header 2 element adds a second-level heading to the report definition.|
||The Header 3 element adds a third-level heading to the report definition.|
||The Header 4 element adds a fourth-level heading to the report definition.|
