Report Cover Pages are the first thing that is seen by your reader, typically right before the Report Table of Contents (TOC).
When enabled the pages can be shown in HTML and / or PDF with various options for its format, layout and style.
To add or edit the Report Cover Page click the menu Design | Cover Page.
The Build Option property controls the output of the Report by including the content in HTML and / or PDF builds.
Report Rules are conditional XQuery or Python expressions that determine if Report content is enabled and applied to the build. Rule based queries return a Boolean that is either True or False and can query the Report Data Source and other Report Data Contexts. Rules are used for controlling the flow, visibility and activation of reporting content.
Report Rules if empty or null by default will always return True.
Report Namespaces are used for providing uniquely named elements and attributes and is a mechanism to avoid name conflicts by differentiating elements or attributes within an XML document that may have identical names, but different definitions. If the Report Data Source contains namespaces they can be applied to the XQuery Processor.
