With the Simple Table, you can very quickly add a table inside a reportThe Simple Table is a grid-like table structure that dynamically creates new rows and columns for rows returned by the Data Keys on the component.  To learn more about the Simple Table, refer to the CrossTab and Simple Tables page.

When creating an XLS file of a report that contains a Simple Table, the content in the Simple Table will be added as an editable overlay. To create an XLS file that places the data directly into cells on the spreadsheet, use a Table component instead.
