The Omni Report Writer is the method by which most reports are configured. It forms a powerful generic and flexible foundation to enable the user to print reports for their own needs. There are four sections that define the report structure.
- Layout/Columns. This section allows you to define which fields to print, the sorting hierarchy as well as the grouping structure. Setup Reports controls this functionality.
- Parameters. This section enables the user to define the parameters of the report. For example date ranges or periods, specific field values e.g. a specific Stock Category or specific field conditions e.g. quantity <> 0.
- Filters. This section provides more options for filters on the data extracted.
- Printer Setup. Select the printer as well as options such as setting a label format, export the data or print orientation or small fonts. The report can then be previewed, output to a grid, exported, emailed or sent to Advanced Data Analysis
With the Design Custom Report Layout Switch, you can design your own unique reports.
