I’m thinking, don’t forget the simple things.
Print report with parameters is just fine, and is what we use. Rarely do we use print Record, and we mostly always send the list into the report all nicely built, rather than build the list in the $construct of the report. Flexibility.

Well when you are ready, is the "Print Report" command the way to go or is there some other way
The wizard prints record by record with the $cinst.$printrecord command in the construct of the report
My first report here is based on a list, as I imagine most of my reports will be
