In the previous Enterprise Reporter article, Aravind shared how to know when the information on a report was collected. Today, we will take a closer look at creating your own reports using the report designer in Enterprise Reporter.The report designer gives Enterprise Reporter users the ability to generate reports using custom queries. These reports can be run on demand or can be scheduled in advance to run automatically at a later time.
If the out-of-box reports or report types supplied in Enterprise Reporter do not deliver the reporting data you need, custom reports can be generated by creating your own queries to retrieve just the information you want. The appearance of these reports can be customized using the layout designer in Enterprise Report Manager.
Enterprise Reporter 2.0 has 6 Custom Reports in the Report Library which are shipped as out-of-box reports and they can be used as references to create and design new Custom Reports.
All of the custom reports have a specific icon in front of the Report Name while all other reports have this icon.
For more information on creating reports, see the Enterprise Reporter Report Manager User Guide.
In the next installment, we'll be reviewing more Advanced Reporting concepts.
