most flexible report layout control?


I'm trying to build a series of reports that have a predefined layout, some of which are outside the parameters of what the report painter appears to be capable of, or at least, designed to do easily.  i've read a little about free-form reports but haven't been able to get them to do what i want either.

for example, say i have a table with about 12 columns that i would like to be displayed in a grid:

col_01 | col_02 | col_03 | col_04
col_05 | col_06 | col_07 | col_08
col_09 | col_10 | col_11 | col_12

i can't seem to get this to work using the painter or using free-form reports.

since this is a web app i'm building, ideally i'd like total control over the html output, where i could write something like:

    <COL_01 (calling a value somehow)

RE: most flexible report layout control?

Try this.

COL_01 AS ''
COL_02 AS ''
COL_03 AS ''
COL_05 AS ''
COL_06 AS ''
COL_07 AS ''
COL_09 AS ''
COL_10 AS ''
COL_11 AS ''
COL_12 AS ''
