This tutorial walks you through writing five reports, and should take about 50 minutes. The instructions assume you will complete all five exercises without exiting ReportWriter.
In the first exercise, you’ll create a simple list‑style report. In the second exercise, you’ll sort the data and use a text field to format subtotals for the report. You’ll learn how to create and use a question field to prompt the user for input in the third exercise. In the fourth exercise, you’ll combine data from two files. And you’ll create and process a calculation field in the fifth exercise.
