Advanced Layouts and Reports

Believe it or not, Layout mode has even more tricks up its sleeve. In the last couple of chapters, you've learned how to use the basic layout tools to position fields, create text labels, add graphics, and more. You've experienced stress-free layout creation with the layout assistant and seen reports in action. You even know how to design full-fledged layouts from the ground up.

Now, you're ready to learn the more advanced layout concepts: controlling how fields look and act, and adding buttons to perform customized tasks. You'll also learn how to develop massively powerful reports by using summary and sub-summary parts to add groups, subtotals, and grand totals.
