The Report Explorer gives you a visual overview of the report elements in the form of a tree view where each node represents a report element.

Using the Report Explorer with any type of report, you can remove controls, add, edit or remove parameters, add a data source, and drag fields onto the report. You can also select the report or any element in the report to display in the Properties Window, where you can modify its properties.

ActiveReports supports two types of reports:

Section and page reports are composed of different types of report elements, so the Report Explorer shows different elements in the report tree depending on the type of report you have open. For more information on how to use the Report Explorer with each, see Exploring Page Reports and Exploring Section Reports .
