You can configure the general settings for each report from the General branch on the Report tree.
The Report Title – This appears at the top of the report. If required, you can specify that the title is repeated on every page of the report.
The Report Style – This specifies the font and appearance of the report. There are three cascading style sheets (.css) that control the appearance of the report. These are called: ReportSmall.css, ReportMedium.css, and ReportLarge.css, and are stored in the Program Files\LANDesk\LANDesk Service Desk folder. The main difference between these style sheets is the size of font used. If you have a working knowledge of modifying style sheets, you can modify them to further control the appearance of your reports.
The style sheets used with these reports are stored locally on each computer. If you know how to modify style sheets, you can configure the appearance of your reports further. However, as the style sheets are stored locally, only you will see the changes reflected in your report. The Query and Report Designer uses style sheets in a different way from how web pages use cascading style sheets, that is, each time a report is generated, it takes the information from within the style sheet and adds it to the report, rather than the report and style sheet being dynamically linked. This means that changes to the style sheet are reflected on any subsequent reports, however, the appearance of existing reports remains unchanged.
