Go to "Format Editor" :
Choose "File" - "New Report" or the button :

- Header first page: we will put the address of the recipient, the date, the subject and the greeting and possibly a logo (see the article about adding a logo). Enlarge the header area by double-clicking it and give it a height of 114mm.
- Detail lines: add as many as necessary with the command :

This will result in something like :
Front page header area
Place the address of the recipient. (In case of doubt see the article on compound fields). Then the other elements that you want to include in the header.
