I am trying to work with reports too, and here is what I have found:

Menu: Tools > Reports > Create Reports

Dialogue box comes up:

Create Report

From the pop-up menu: Listing Objects with Record:

Select: Plant Record

And then you can choose the data that you want to display.

Not so apparent, but there.

Good luck and let me know how it goes!

there are worksheets already made up for this purpose. There are stored in the library folder in your VectorWorks application folder:

Edit spreadsheet, check database headers. Highlight appropriate cell. Change "botanical" to "Latin"

This has been a bug since day one of 2008. VW seems unwilling to correct in updates for some reason - maybe it shows how much they care about us.
