The report template document defines the layout of a report. It is a standard Microsoft Word 2007 document that also contains the report definition details, such as the sections in the report, the fields in each section, and the static text values defined for the report. This information is gathered from the report definition, and then embedded into the report template document when the document is created.
The Microsoft Word Add-in for Microsoft Dynamics GP is used to access this report definition information in the report template. It makes the information available so it can be used when the layout of the report template document is defined.
