Report Properties Dialog Box (Report Builder)

Makes it possible for you to set options for reports and labels.

This dialog box appears when you choose Properties from the context menu of a report layout window or when you click Properties on the Report menu.

NoteNote

This dialog box is only displayed if the _REPORTBUILDER system variable is set to the default Report Builder application. If it is empty, or has been set to a third-party report builder, the native Visual FoxPro dialog box (or a third-party dialog box) may appear. For more information, see _REPORTBUILDER System Variable.

The following table lists the tabs that exist in the Report Properties dialog box.
