HI wonder if anyone knows how to automate a report showing parcel information along with an inset map on the same page. I have access to ArcGIS 10.

Are you comfortable with ArcPy & Python? Can you describe your requirements in more detail, please? – PolyGeo May 4 '13 at 0:29
Thanks for your reply @PolyGeo. I havent used ArcPy at all and have used Python a little. Am trying to create a report that shows the parcel and the tabular data on a single page. I have used data driven pages and can do this manually but i havent got far with the reporting tools. – Jampot2000 May 7 '13 at 21:54
Are you using 10.1 or 10.0? Do you want page to be mostly map with simple report embedded or little map embedded on page that is mostly report? – PolyGeo May 7 '13 at 22:08
Am using 10 and i was just reading how you could do similar in 10.1. Mostly a map with a small table. – Jampot2000 May 7 '13 at 22:52
My solution to this will most probably come from the 10.1 Help (the second code example) but it should apply equally well to 10.0. – PolyGeo May 7 '13 at 23:56
