  3. Right-click, and then select Create Report Definition for this table.
  4. Create the report definition.
  5. Close Process App B, and open Process App A.
  6. Create a reference to Process App B. (For steps, refer to Defining a Reference.)
  7. Add a Single Relational or Multi-Relational field based on Auxiliary Table A.
  8. Configure the relational grid in Process App A to use the report created in Process App B.
