"Ed says . . ."

Ed has followed in his father's footsteps and taken on the family almond business.  After replanting a section with three different mite-resistant Prunus cultivars he's decided to track his success ratio carefully.  "I'm using the software to record everything I can think of that affects their yield."   Ed's not waiting for the university researchers to tell him what works -- he's doing it himself, the way his father did.

Q:  What is the data source field used for?

 Frequently Asked Questions

Tips . . .

  How do I create a report layout?

A:  Report layouts define how a specimen listing will look when printed. A report layout specifies font faces, point sizes, and colors to be used with your printout. The report layout does not specify what data to print, what columns to include, or what sorting to apply to the printed records -- these are all specified through the current filter. A single report layout can be applied to any filter; thus when you've created a layout with your own personal look-and-feel, you can use it repeatedly to produce a variety of different printouts.

To create a report layout, you can begin by pressing the New button or the Duplicate button from within the Print dialog box. Use the Print report . . . menu item of the File menu to get there.  see the full story.
