    Would it be possible to add the ability to control field order in reports?

    Asked by indigo_wolf on July 13, 2012 at 03:13 AM

    Currently, when you use a grid or table type report, the fields can be selected, but they are displayed in the order that they appear on the form.  However, sometimes it would be preferable to display the fields on the report in a different order. 

    If you are using the grid display, you can drag and drop to change the order that the fields are displayed in, but once you close the report, it reverts to the original field order when you open the report again.

    Please let me know if you need an example of what I am trying to do.

    Kind regards,

    Sam

    We actually do not provide any customization options for reports. Hence, it is not possible to change the order of the fields' appearance in a form report.

    Sorry about that.
