I hadn't given this much thought until I was ask, in the context of the report designer what does Relative and Absolute records mean.  Any help will be appreciated.

Relative means in relation to a previously output record move (space, skip) to the positions.

Absolute means that it will move to the specific line position. For example skip to line 72 and print invoice totals vs skip 72 lines.
