When the user creates a report, application data is passed into the Report Module as a Flat Input Table. The Flat Input Table is a table of rows and columns, similar to the CSV format or an Excel worksheet
Report File Menu
The File sub-menu contains various options to process reports:
Figure : report File Menus
File > Export includes five sub-menu items:
Export all or part of the report as PDF, Excel workbook, images, or CSV.
Export to PDF generates a .pdf document version of the report:
The Export to PDF settings includes:
•Export options to choose to export all tabs, only plots, or all tabs except plots.
•Page settings to set page margins, visibility and placement of page numbers, page orientation (Auto uses a combination of portrait and landscape as suits each tab), and total document width.
•Image compression level to set the image resolution quality, and thus, size of the exported file. The higher the compression, the smaller the size but the lower the image quality.
Export to Excel workbook generates a *.xlsx file of all tabs. The PTM Summary tab, charts and plots are rendered as images, while pivot tables are rendered as spreadsheets.
Export to image generates one *.png file for each of the tabs.
Export to pivot table content (CSV) writes the pivot table to a *.csv file. Export input content as flat file (CSV) writes a pivot table to a flattened *.csv file (common values are repeated for all pivoted fields).
File > Export > Fixed Excel report (legacy) exports the project to an Excel file in the same way that File > Export > Export to Excel workbook exports from within a report
