Hi

I have a Windows for that I want my user to position text and labels to set a layout for a report. What is the best way to do this? Should I use a table? Perhaps drag labels around?

I think that is one way. Is it going to be a single page report like an invoice or a multiple page list of columns (like a datagridview shows)?

Probably a single page. I would probably use a tab control to add additional pages

I am not aware of any reporting tool which supports tabs unless you mean using forms as reports.

Yes. I mean using a form to build a report structure
I want to position and format labels on a form then
also use labels to name a query that pulls in SQL data
and position that name as another label
