Conditional Formatting—Using Data to Drive the Look of a Report

Up to now, the focus has been on static, non-changing formatting. The next step in making reports as presentable as possible is to apply formatting based on the data that is being returned from a field or even applying formatting on one field based on the value of another.

Conditional formatting relies on the formula language to be used. This is advantageous because the formula language is very extensive. Very complex statements can be made within the formula language to make very complex formatting formulas for use in reports. For this hour, the tutorials will stick with relatively simple examples. For more tips and tricks on using the formula language, see Hour 17, “Using Formulas and Custom Functions to Implement Complex Business Logic.”
