|Available in: Logi Info|| Source code name: MasterReport||Introduced in: 12.1.188|
A master report is a special report defined with elements to be included in most other reports. Master reports often define the header, left and footer bars for all other reports of an application.
When a master report is used with another report, the master report's elements "wrap" the other report's elements.
At runtime, the current report and the master report get merged together.
To use a master report, create a report definition with elements to be included in other reports. For example, a standard header area. Then, somewhere in the Body element of the master report, include a MasterReportContent element. This is where the content of other reports get inserted. Finally, in each of the other reports, add a MasterReport element which points to the master report.
Elements are copied from the master report into the current report to the same location as the MasterReport element.
