Print Report List

Selecting the Reports and Letters command will display a list of all reports available to you. This list can also be accessed by the Printer icon on the toolbar. Many forms also have a button labeled Print that will run this same function.

Several processes control what the user sees in this Reports List. Management reports may have been set so that only certain operator user levels can access them. Also, reports displayed in any list are controlled by the report definition's Start On field. The list of reports always shows reports that start on "Anywhere" plus any reports that Start On the record you are currently viewing when you select this command.

The column headings in the Reports List display information from the Report Definition for the report. Each column heading is the actual name of the field on the Report Definition form. If you change the field label on the form, the next time you view a record list you will see that the field label change has applied to the list column heading as well. The default columns listed are Name and Start on.

By default, the list will display in order of the Start On column. The active column is the Name column. By immediately starting to type a report Name when you bring up the list of reports, Collect! will automatically scroll to the report that is the closest match.

The Reports List enables you to quickly find a specific report. Selecting a report immediately starts Collect!'s printing process. Different things may happen depending on the report's design. For instance, you may be prompted with a Report Output form to select your printer destination or other settings. Or, the report may immediately open in another program.
