Most of the time, printouts use a standardized appearance and layout: date in the top right corner in a specific format, page footer with print time and file name, logo in the top left corner, ...

A report template can be created:

  • from the current report (on the "Home" pane, in the "General" group, expand "Save" and select "Save as a template").
To create a report based on a template, select the template that will be used during the report creation.

For example, dissociating the position of a template control to position the control somewhere else while keeping the other evolutions performed on the control (code, style, ...). We talk of inheritance. In this case, the elements are identified by a blue square.
