Hi All,

I am working on Composer Layout Painter.
Where i want to Place Report 2 beside Repot 1.
Report 1 - is a Crosstab Report.
Report 2 - Just a Small report with two Columns.

By using the composer Layout Relative-Positioning is possible for top and bottom reports.
we can't position two reports relatively left and right.

Thanks and Regards,
Santhosh Kumar V

I played with it to no avail. Sounds like a new feature request. It would work great if you could put the second report first and then the second one.

Can you post a sample of your two reports so we have something to play with.

Sorry, I'm not really familiar with the Composer Layout Painter tool, but this code seems to produce side-by-side reports.

SET HTMLARCHIVE=ON

POSITION=(+5.0 -3.5), RELATIVE-TO='report1', RELATIVE-POINT=BOTTOM-LEFT, POSITION-POINT=TOP-LEFT,
These are the important commands to understand.

Once you get your head around these you will comprehend how to get the result you want - and then you might move to the editor instead of the GUI Wink
