Reporting collates the significant data in a database. The report can either be printed, copied to the clipboard, or output as a file.

The following file types are supported:
  • HTML
  • Rich Text Format (RTF)
  • Microsoft™ Word document.
  • Microsoft Access database.
There are two types of report that can be produced:
  • Standard Reports - Each report covers a single entity type and can include none, one or several link types.
  • Link Reports - Each report covers a single link type and can include none, one or several entity types.
Reports always show a snapshot of the data at the time the report is created.

Before you can produce a report, you need to define its contents and appearance in a report definition. Since you might need to create the same type of report many times, for example a weekly status report, report definitions can be saved and used to rerun reports as required. To speed up the preparation of reports, you can set a particular report definition as the default for a specific entity type.

Note: When data is added to report, it is no longer under any form of access control. It becomes your responsibility to ensure that access to any restricted or secret information is controlled in an appropriate way.
