I've been having a play and reading the help about a part of ArcMap I don't really use and that is the Reports. I thought I would teach myself a bit more about this by creating a simple report, for which I have spectacularly failed!
I have a point dataset, say with 100 points and there is a text field that gives each point a type. For arguments sake I have types A, B, C and D.
I've been trying to create a single page that would give a count for each type, something that the Summary Statistics tool can do. The end result would be a nice looking report with a simple table like:
Type Count A 25 B 25 C 30 D 20
That is it! Nothing more complex. Have I misunderstood what a report is actually about? I've tried setting Group Levels, Summary Function to count and Summary Group properties and have not succeeded in creating a simple table.
