Calxa allows you to insert a full page rich text format (RTF) document into your bundle and/or merge rich text content into the header or footer of a report in a bundle.

You might use a full page document to create Cover Pages, Executive Summaries and Disclaimers or to include other external reports and charts. Merging rich text with reports allows you to add commentary to your reports or simply customise the look and feel with a custom header.

With Calxa report bundles and the rich text editor you can create complete management report packages delivered straight out of Calxa.

Document Merge types

Full Page
The Full Page merge type enables you to insert a single or multi-page document into your bundle. You might use this merge type to create the following kinds of documents: Cover Page, Table of Contents, Executive Summary, Disclaimers, externally generated reports or charts.

Previous Footer
This merge type allows you to insert snippets of rich text into the previous report. The rich text is inserted directly after the report body but before the footer. Examples of where you might use this merge type are footnotes and variance explanations.

Next Header
The Next Header merge type allows you to insert bits of rich text into the header of the next report. The rich text is inserted directly into the top of the report above the report title. You might use this merge type to insert the following types of text: custom report header, report description, disclaimer.


Warning: ⚠️ When using Previous Footer ensure there is a report before the document in the bundle item order. When using Next Header ensure there is a report after the document in the bundle item order. Otherwise the document merge will fail.
