Dynamics 365 Business Central: Setting the Report Layout for a Report

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central supports the definition of multiple report layouts for a report. Layouts are defined as part of the Report, a Report Extension, or a Custom Report Layout.

Within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, there are two ways to set the Layout that is used by a report. The Report Layout is set using the Report Layout Selection or Report Layouts pages.

Report Layouts Page

  • Search for the Report Layouts and open the Report Layouts Page
  • Find and select the Report Layout in the list
  • Click the Set Default action at the top of the page.

  • In the Report Layouts page, select the Layout, then select OK.
