      Create dynamic report base on what user defined

      Post

           Hi all,

           I want to let user define their own report ,for instance, I have one Layout called Create Report. On Create Report layout, user can choose some report's section from the dropdown list such as Title Footer or Sub Summary ....and the information will be displayed for each section such as Company Name on the title Footer. After they have done choosing reports' section, I will create the report correctly with what they defined.

           FileMaker can do that?

            

           Thanks

               Maybe, but it won't be easy to do as FileMaker isn't really designed to support that option.

               You'd have to design a great many different layouts and most of the implementation would be based on using the options selected by the user to select a particular layout that has the needed layout parts. It might be possible to use one layout to display data from different fields or this might also require additional layouts. It would depend on the structure of your tables and the relationships that link them.
