Creating a custom report
The scenario: At Lucerne Publishing, you are sometimes asked for project cost details in
terms of both summary tasks (or phase) and resources. You’ll create a custom report that
includes the mix of cost information you want.
In this exercise, you create a custom report that includes a chart and a table.
On the Report tab, in the View Reports group, click New Report.
These options let you start either with a blank report or with an initial table or chart.
The Comparison option creates a new report that contains two identical charts, with
the expectation that you’ll customize one or both.
Click Blank .
The Report Name dialog box appears. The name you enter will be the title at the top
of the report and will appear on the Custom menu (in the View Reports group, on
the Report tab) so that you can view this report later.
In the Name field, type Gourmet Cookbook Cost Summary and then click OK .
Project creates the new blank report.
