Structure Mode

Definition

Structure Mode is a way of viewing a report that is optimized for looking at structure, as opposed to content (data). When changed into structure mode, a report shows all the report elements, such as tables, charts and extra cells, with the names of the fields or contents instead of the data itself.

Structure Mode can be helpful for structuring your report without data clutter. It can be especially helpful with aligning report elements or troubleshooting structural problems.

Example: Facilities Universe Corporate Report "Buildings" run for Fall of 2005

Tab: "1250 Bldg List - By CAAN"
