List report styles

Use the styles included with the global report style sheet, GlobalReportStyles.css, to format list reports.

The following table shows formatting from the GlobalStyleSheet.css style sheet for list reports:

Table 1. List report styles

This two-columned table provides information about the items in one column and the style in the second column.

Item Style
Cells 1 px silver line borders (unless otherwise noted)
Column header Light gray background; 1.5 pt black line separates column header from rest of table
Summary header rows (list headers) Light yellow background
Total row at bottom Dark gray background; 1.5 pt black line separates row from rest of table

Additionally, when you create a new list report, use the following guidelines to match existing reports:

  • Use List Headers (not List Footers) to display summarization at the object level.
  • Manually right-justify any numbers that are displayed in List Headers. Unlike List Footers, List Headers are not separated into the outer component and summary component, which use a right-justified style by default. When you summarize information into a List Header, you must complete the extra step and right-justify the values.
  • Optionally, add 1.5 pt solid black borders to group columns.

The following example shows a list report that does not use the global styles:

Date formats for globalized versions

If you use a globalized version of the Unica reports package, you see a different date format in your list reports depending on which locale you use. Cognos list reports use the date style medium.

The following table shows the date formats for list reports for all available locales.
