FM - Advice on Reporting vs. Using Lists
Posted on 2011-03-09
I am trying to get my boss off of lists and onto reporting as reporting seems to save fields. In the lists that currently exist, for example, you can have 80 count fields and 80 summary fields, and 80 calc fields (e.g., % change from one total to another). However, am I right in doing this. What is the best practice? Is it preferred to create a report rather than creating all these extra fields? Also, I am having a hard time making calcs work in report (amount, count, and summary fields are easy). Any general tips with that or should I provide an example? (Or is this a different question)?
