Report Designer: Region mode

Alerts and notices

A region is a section of a report as defined within the design grid of the Report Designer. For example, default regions within a report include the Header, Alternate Header, Main, Footer, and Alternate Footer regions.

To change to Region mode so that you can define the properties that apply to a selected region of a report, click the title bar for that region within the design grid to open the Region section in the Design Tools frame.
