In the Display Fields the current 'Select a Display Field' is very tedious as every time you want to select a field you need to scroll through the whole list to find the field you want to select. This is awkward to use and very slow. The alternative of Add / Remove All is not really very helpful either.
I would rather have two columns. On the right have a list of all the available fields and on the left show that fields you wish to see in your report. Then allow the user to drag and drop the fields back and forth between the columns. You could also make it that the order the fields appear in on the left column is the order that they appear on in the report.
Also for complex reports it may be better not to have this in a dialog box as it is easier to scroll up and down if you are just working from a normal web page.
