Running Reports

To run Report Writer reports simply select Reports > Report Writer > Report List. Access to this menu and which reports are viewable is controlled by security (see the section below).

The left-hand menu lists all the categories of reports available.  Select a category to refresh the report options.  Each report available will have a thumb-nail of the report.  Click on the report to run it in a preview mode.
