Standard Report Types

Introduction

Reports are opened via the Publish menu and the Publishing Tools Finder. They can be applied to any selected records, and are automatically refreshed when any of the underlying data is changed. Once open, there are many customisation Options, and Save Report As formats, which includes saving as Custom Reports.

Most reports are organised as tabulated, indented, or simple lists, but Narrative Reports employ Narrative Report Fact Sentence Templates to produce natural language sentences.

With a Report window open pressing the F1 key, or clicking the Help button in its sub-windows, gives detailed advice.
