Give the report a name and click Ok to open it in the Report Designer.


To begin building the report, add a data source.

In the Toolbox Panel, in the category Data Sources > Common, drag a Folder Data Source component to the Sources list.


Next, add some columns to the report.

Expand the Folder Data Source category in the Toolbox Panel and drag an Entity NameFolder Type Name, and Nesting Level component to the workspace.


This completes the report.  Save it and close the Report Designer.
