Reports are the applied configuration objects. They are intended to process the accumulated information and to receive the summary data in convenient for viewing and analyzing form. The Designer allows forming a set of various reports sufficient to meet the needs of system users in the reliable and detailed output information.
Usually, to form the output data, a report uses the data composition system. But, generally speaking, a report may contain an arbitrary algorithm to form the «paper» or «electronic» report in the script.
Report may include one or more forms with which it is possible, if necessary, to organize the input of some parameters that affect the algorithm execution.
Execution of reports in background mode
The reports that use the data composition system can be generated in the background mode. By launching the report, the user may continue working with a program and at the time of report generation the special picture will be displayed instead of data.
