Defining a Fixed-Column Table Report

With some tasks, you may want to add a link to a message sent to a user that contains data too large for a message, for example, an message with a picture, abstract, and a link to a full article or report. This topic describes how to define a table report with fixed-column widths.

The table report type can be displayed to an end-user when the URL for this table is clicked in a message. In the following illustration, the message sent to the end-user contains a link to the table report called Your Daily Tasks.


When the user clicks the link in the message, a fixed-column table report shows the data for the columns defined with a table header, optional table description, and a header row with fixed-column sizes as shown in the following illustration for the Your Daily Tasks report.
