I'm looking for a way to create reports that are not columnar in nature. Ones that are formatted and printable, not ones that look like spreadsheets. Could someone point me toward some documentation on how to accomplish this?

Thanks!
Melissa

It sounds like you are describing a free form report:

Thank you - I will check that out.

But is there not a way to do free form reports in a GUI fashion? Without having to write code?

I believe that Free Form reports are called "Precision Reports" in Dev Studio (it appears that App Studio has removed support for it)

Alternatively depending on the layout you require you may be able to use a Document - but this is more commonly used for multi-page documents combining reports and/or graphs
