Report Definition custom section
After adding a custom section to a report definition to show the rows and data, all the fields in the custom section shows up in just one column in the report definition. Did anyone face a similar problem? Does the custom section need to use a specific layout for it to work?
We are trying to display the results of the report definition using a custom section. As per the information related to that in help, we cannot add a repeating grid in the custom section, it needs to be a simple section.See below:
We are using 7.1.9 , we were finally able to get the custom section to show the rows in a proper way by making the "do not scroll headers" selection in the report viewer and by adding a free form layout nested within a dynamic layout (using dynamic layout for onclick functionality) , so that we can resize the columns and match the alignment with the report headers.
However, the only issue we are facing now is that on resize of the report window , the alignment in the columns is off. I see in the help information that nested custom sections could cause the alignment to be off. Is there any other layout option that we could use to overcome this?

When you use a custom section to display the report data, the entire report body will be replaced with the section.You need to hide the column headings to prevent the display of headings you defined in the Columns to Include section.
The below link will help explain how to use this functionality.
