As you add items to the report, you might find it difficult to select items. For example, it is almost impossible to select an enclosing rectangle by trying to click on its boundaries. You can tab among fields until you select the item you need, but a better way is to use the VS.NET Properties window and select the item from the drop-down. This will select the item in the Report Designer as well. Another even faster way to select the item container is to hit the Esc key object when the child is selected.

Freeform reports with side-by-side data regions As we said at the beginning of this chapter, data regions can coexist peacefully next to one another and each of them can be bound to its own dataset. This could be useful when you need to have sections in your report that draw data from separate datasets. One practical application of using side-by-side regions is creating summary reports. The Employee Sales by Territory with Summary report does exactly this. Figure 4.18 shows the new report. The report has a summary section at the top to summarize territory sales data. To design the report, we created a new dataset (dsTerritorySummary). Then, we added a new table region (tblSummary) before the lstTerritory region and populated it with the fields from the dataset, as shown in figure 4.19. With RS, one report can have many regions of different types placed side by side. However, as we mentioned in chapter 3, you should try to limit the number of the report datasets for performance reasons. Giving only text-oriented reports to users may not be enough. For example, marketing people love charts so that they can spot business trends more easily. The next section teaches you how to design chart reports.

DESIGNING CHART REPORTS
Chart reports display data in an easy-to-understand graphical format. With RS, you can add different types of charts to your reports, including column, bar, area, line, pie, doughnut, scatter, bubble, and stock chart types.
The chart data region The chart data region is a sophisticated control, and explaining it in detail could easily fill in a whole chapter. Most of you who have experience in authoring chart reports using other reporting tools, such as Microsoft Graph for charting with Access-based reports, will probably find the RS chart region similar. In this section we will give you only the essential knowledge for working with the RS chart region. If you need more information, please refer to the product documentation.
NOTE
If you have experience using the Dundas Software chart control, you ll find yourself in familiar waters, since RS uses this control for charting.
To set up a chart report, you drag and drop the chart data region. Figure 4.20 shows the default appearance of the chart region. Once the chart region is placed on the report canvas, you can change the chart type by right-clicking it and using the context menu or by selecting the General tab from the Chart Properties dialog, as shown in figure 4.21. Once you have selected the chart type, you need to set up the chart data by defining the chart values, categories, and series.

DESIGNING CHART REPORTS
Working with charts To demonstrate a practical example of a chart report, let s assume that the AWC sales management has requested that we change the Employee Sales by Territory with Summary report. Instead of having the report display the territory sales in a tabular fashion, the management has requested the data to be presented in a chart format, so they can easily see which countries are performing best. Figure 4.22 shows the Employee Sales by Territory with Summary Chart report. This report uses an exploded pie chart. Once we changed the chart type, we dragged the Territory field from the dsTerritorySummary dataset and dropped it into the data fields section. Then, we dragged and dropped the Sales YTD field into the data fields section, as shown in figure 4.23. As a result, the chart was configured to display Sales YTD as values and group the sales data by Territory. In addition, using the Category Groups properties, we sorted the data by Sales YTD so that the countries will appear on the top of the chart legend. Also, we enabled the chart point labels (numbers on the slices) by going to the Data tab on the Chart Properties dialog and clicking the Edit button of the Values section. We defined the data labels as shown in figure 4.24.
