Generate Fancy Reports

Dear Friends,

You have difficulty in generating reports in Notes? Here is the code that will
take off your burden.

In this code I have referred a form named "Report form", which has a rich text
field called "Report",
I have a SaveOptions field it can be of any type. The Data to generate the
report is got from "Report view"

This code is put in an action button.

If you have any questions please send me a mail at skanth@parker.com

With regards
Sashi
