Tables containing many records usually have to be summarized for a first glance. From there one should be able to "Drill down" to multiple detail reports.
For example, you have a table containing Employees that includes name, department, telephone, address, payroll info. You create a summary report that summarizes employees by department. In that summary report it would be useful to launch to a detail report showing names, addresses, and phone numbers. It would also be useful to launch to a detail report just showing payroll information.
From a summary view one may want to see multiple detail reports. I have tables that contain multiple detail reports. Each report displays different fields according to the end-users needs. The end-user many times does not want or need to see a report containing all table fields if there are many fields. Teamdesk currently assumes that there is only one report that should come from a Summary view.
