Objective: To illustrate:
- the way in which EQMS presents its Reports
- the contents of those Reports
- the ways in which the Reports may be used
Access to Reports via Menu Bar
Each module of EQMS contains a Reports button in the menu bar, similar to below
Clicking on this button will display in the Active Area a list of the Reports available to that User from within the selected module
Hovering over a row will display a description of the Report's content in the Report Info panel.
Clicking on a row will present a Filter panel if there is a filtering option. The filtering choices are generally either date fields or dropdown box choices. These are in most cases preset, so that you can select the Preview button straight away. If there is no data within range, or you select a combination of filter settings which result in no data, then the Preview button will give you a Report page with a red advisory message
When you see your Report, after selection and possible filtering and selection of the Preview button, you will have a number of ways to navigate and use the Report.
A full glossary of icons and buttons can be found at help.eqms.co.uk

Exporting the Report
One item omitted above is the Export to the selected format dropdown.
This offers the choice of a number of a options described below.
|Acrobat (PDF) file||Standard Adobe Reader screen for .pdf output, of similar appearance to the Report layout.|
|CSV (comma delimited)||Spreadsheet style output with headings and column headings repeated for every detail line of the Report. May need to see the source Report layout to deduce what the detail columns are.|
|Excel 97-2003||Spreadsheet output mimicking the "paper" layout. Column headings appear above their detail but Group and Heading references, and space rows may present subsequent data sorting problems, where the Report is not designed primarily for spreadsheet output.|
|Rich Text Format||.rtf file of similar appearance to the Report layout.|
|TIFF file||.tif file of similar appearance to the Report layout.|
|Web Archive||.mhtml file of similar appearance to the Report layout.|
