When building custom reports, the help files ReportUtilities.chm and ProjectItems.chm provide a lot of help. Is there anywhere that we can get the most recent versions of these files?

1. Download the file
2. Right-click the zip file and choose Properties
3. Click the [Unblock] button:
4. Unzip the file and double-click to open it.
5. Expand the ReportUtilites Methods node. This lists the available Report Utilities that we have built and the syntax needed to use.
