Layout / How To
After a report has been run, it is placed into a holding queue for viewing or printing. Reports remain in this queue until you delete them.
Each print queue entry contains information for when it was run, how many database records were created for the report, and the internal link name that Lading Manager uses to link to the report template (when viewing and printing).
It is important for you to understand that Lading Manager does not keep an image of the report in the print queue; it only stores data records. Lading Manager uses external report programs for all report viewing and printing.
Print queue entries are only available to one Lading Manager user at a time. The reports that you run go to your print queue and no one else can see them.
To view a report, click on it and press the View/Print Entry button. You may also double click on the queue entry or right click on the queue entry and select View/Print Entry from the menu.
There are a number of different ways to print a report. You may print a report when viewing it by pressing the print button (first icon at the top). You may mark the "X" column on the queue display and press the Print Marked button. You may press the Print All Entries button.
To delete a queue entry, click on it and press the Delete Entry button. You may also mark the "X" column on the queue display and press the Delete Marked button. You may press the Delete All Entries button. Or, you may right click on the queue entry and select Delete Entry from the menu.
Print queue entries may be transferred to another user via the Move to Other User button.
Reports may be exported in either a data format or in a report format. To export in a report format, you must first view the report and then press the export button (the button that looks like an envelope). There are a number of export formats available, but PDF (Adobe Acrobat® "Portable Data Format") is recommended. To export data only, press the Export Entry button. Again, there are a number of data formats available, but Microsoft® Excel® is recommended.
