I am working on the Web Application, which generates the Purchase orders and requisitions and maintains the Procurement services for Hotel Industry.
Application releases the Output is in the form of Reports While designing these reports,
I am facing small trouble; Need suggestion and views on it!!
a.. How does the content inside columns should be placed and aligned? If data consists Alphanumeric, Numeric and Quantity based data, example Dates, Phone number address and quantities (decimal units).
b.. What is difference between displaying Fixed and Variable amount of data in the columns or the rows?
According to my understanding towards User Experience " I am aligning the data left wise like Dates, Phone numbers, Headers etc. and Quantities dependant upon their decimal units hence right align "
Is there any other better way! Or what does rules say to display!!!
