Launching the Report Designer window

There are several ways to launch the Report Designer window where you will design the report:

All of these methods will launch the Report Designer window:

Note: When you use the Dynamic Reports module, the Report Designer window may launch slowly the first time you use it. After this window has been launched once, you can quickly navigate between this window and other windows (the retrieval settings screen, the report viewer, and the Dynamic Reports main screen).
