The Report form lets you select a report and set the parameters such as date range, name or group that are offered for that report.

You can view the report on your screen, print it to the default printer or export it to CSV, DBF (dBase, FoxPro, Clipper), HTM (for web browsers), MDB (Access), RTF (Word or WordPad), TXT or XLS (Excel) formats. Click PDF to quickly send the report to the import folder as a PDF without any prompts.

Click ImportFolder or Alt-I to see the files in the import folder that you specified on the Setup form.

You can specify the fields and records that appear on custom reports and multiple sort orders using a combo box. If you need subtotals for groups within the report, we can let users choose the order in which the grouping occurs. It is easy to create multi-column reports, labels that skip labels that have been removed from the sheet, and to include graphics, a company logo, page breaks, lines boxes or shadows. You can specify margins, fonts, shading, colors and font properties. We use VBA to ask questions and update data before or after a report has run or include subreports within the report. Temporary tables often improve performance of reports that use complex queries. The Sel feature lets you choose the records you want to report.

Check the ShowSel box or Alt-S to select records. ShowSel usually overrides all other parameters.

Reports, like forms show the name in the upper left corner. Reports normally show the page number, date the report was created and the name of the app that created the report in small font. It is easy to add a line showing the parameters that were chosen for the report.
