Aesthetically pleasing reports

An important part of developing reports is to make them pleasant to look at. I have seen many reports that are bland and look like a real mess. There are some things that I do to make my reports aesthetically pleasing. Headings are always in bold. I usually make the heading group with a silver background as this makes the headings stand out. Columns should always be alighned to make them look neat. Row text should be alighed and should be the same size and font. There is nothing worse than looking at a report with text all over the place.
