To set up the magic squares report, first create a setup file to store the setup. Then add MATLAB® objects, called components, to the setup to specify the report content.
To create the report setup file:
Start a MATLAB software session.
Open the Report Explorer. From the MATLAB Toolstrip, in the Apps tab, in the Database Connectivity and Reporting section, click Report Generator.

Note: When you change a Properties pane field, its background color changes. This indicates that there are unapplied changes to that field. As soon as you perform any action with another component, MATLAB Report Generator™ applies the changes, and the background color becomes white again.
Save your report. Select File > Save As and name your report
The new file name appears in the Outline pane.
To create the content for the report, see Add Report Content Using Components.
