Ok, so now I'm just curious about the code on a report.  You mentioned using 
Proview is the easiest way, but I can't seem to figure out to do it.  Is 
this still possible in the latest version of Proview?

Of course there is a better way <g>.  Use Vladimir's Proview.  It allows
for editing report methods.  It also blocks you from putting code in the
most unstable places.
You can also do it with opal code and the editmethod method.  Use a
script or form to run the editmethod code.  Proview is the easiest way.

PS  Remember when adding code to reports to always save before running.
  Code changes do not take effect unless you save it.
