The canned reports can be customized to a user's specifications using the existing options on the different tabs of each report. Sometimes, a user may wish to customize the reports further to better suit their need, such as adding/removing columns. Since these reports are hard coded, we are unable to edit the existing customization options.
The RPT files that are installed with Blackbaud software are integrated with the Reports and Mail functionality and should not be manipulated. Doing so may cause errors or other alignment problems within the software.
Editing the RPT files may also have software license agreement implications.
