The Reporting Center projects interface allows you to run reports on a project that you have open in the Text, Visio, or AutoCAD interfaces. To open, go to the D-Tools > Reports menu option from within an open project.
This window is divided into five areas:
Click the [Project Summary] button to see a financial overview of your project as shown below.
The lower right area shows you some basic information about the project in the Project Details tab. Also, when you run reports, these will appear as tabs in this same area. See Viewing a Report.
The Reports list on the upper left shows all of the defined reports.
To create a new report definition, report group, or custom report, go to the Reporting Center primary interface. You cannot modify the Reports List from within the projects reporting interface.
To Run a Report
Double-click on the report name in to run the report. This will run the report using the default Report Definition. The results will appear in a tab in the Project Details and Reports area.
If the report has multiple Report Definitions, click on the symbol next to the report name to see the definitions, and double-click on the one you want to run. See List of Reports.
To Run a Report with Filters
To filter the project data before running a report, right-click on the definition and select “Run Report with Filters”. Note that not all reports support filtering. See List of Reports.
To Run a SI4 Legacy Report
If you have SI4 installed on this computer, you can run any non-Business Manager SI4 report, including custom reports, for your project. Go to File -> Legacy Reporting System in the menu bar and the SI4 Reports interface will open.
The report details area shows some basic information about the selected report, such as its name, a description, and what the Report Definition settings are. The information in this section changes whenever you select a different report in the Report List. See the reporting center primary interface guide above for more information.
The reporting center projects interface has these menu bar options:
File > Run Report
Run the selected report
File > Legacy Reporting System
If you have SI4 installed, opens the SI4 reporting interface
The taskbar has two icons for quick access to these functions:
...... Run Report
...... Run Report with Filters
