Report Name

Note: Enter a name that has fewer than 100 characters. Otherwise, you receive an error when you attempt to view the new report.

Object List

Allows you to select which object list to run the report against. For information on Object Lists, see Object List in the Global Search section.

Report Format

Allows you to select the report file format: Tab Delimited, XML, and Text.
  • Tab Delimited: saves the report with an .txt extension. You can use the report with a spreadsheet application, such as Excel.
  • XML: saves the report with an .xml extension. You can use the report with an Internet browser, such as Internet Explorer.
  • Text: saves the report with an .txt extension. You can use the report with any text-viewing application, such as Notepad.

Send To Printer

Allows you to automatically send the report to the default printer of the ODS each time the report generates. The report first saves to a file on the server; then, it is sent to the default printer.

For more information on configuring the default printer on the ODS, refer to the ODS documents listed in Related Documentation.
