I have a PDF report to create.. Its usually 2 pages long and contains the information for a single record. It is generated by manual selection one record at a time. It already includes a sub-report with multiple child entities related to the parent record.
The thing is the parent record contains 134 fields. I've got these split into multiple related panels currently
For maintainability, is it easier to split the panels into sub-reports? Is there any performance issue with that? Although only 1 report is selected at a time.
I find that when I have to make a change the desktop report designer isn't very user friendly when panels need to be moved down to expand a prior panel.
Or am I just not familiar with the designer enough to more things around efficiently?
