A table is a set of information that is grouped together to form a table. In QPR Add-In for Microsoft Office, there are four different types of tables available.
In a report template a table is represented by a single tag, just like a field. During generation of the report, the tag is replaced by corresponding table. Unlike with fields, styles applied to filler text of the table tag holder are not applied to the table itself. Thus it is impossible to format a table before generation of the report.
Inserting a table
The easiest way to insert a table is via Insert field, just like any other field would be inserted. Tables are available at the end of the Fields available list depending on the type of the element: Related actions are available for all element types, sub-elements and values only for measures.
This way the table tag will be created with default settings. These settings can be altered using the tag editor.
Alternatively you can use Add custom tag button to create a table. This way all the parameters of the table are available right away.
Different table types and their parameters are presented in the section Table types.
Customizing a table
Table tags (their parameters) can be customized using the tag editor. See the sections 'Using the Tag Editor' and 'Customized Table' for more information.
The following sub-sections describe the table types available in the QPR Add-In for Microsoft Office.
