The Reports window displays a list of all project reports defined to the Projman
application. Reports are divided into two categories, Standard and
Custom. Standard reports are included with the application and cannot
be modified or deleted. You can copy and modify standard reports to
create custom reports, which can be copied, modified, and deleted.
Reports are grouped according to type. The following types are available:
|Calendars|| ||Resource Schedule|| |
|Gantt Charts|| ||Resource Usage|| |
|Network Diagrams|| ||Tabular|| |
|Resource Cost|| || || |
You can define as many different reports as you would like. Reports are
designed to work with any project provided that the necessary data are available.
Individual report options can be set by accessing the Options window
for a particular report.
Global report options can be set by accessing the
Report Options window. These options include the setting
of default color and fonts as well as the specification of report titles and
The Active Project indicates the project that is active for the Reports
window. When you generate reports, the active project
provides the data for the selected report. When multiple projects are open at
one time, the active project removes any confusion about which project data
are used to produce the report.
To change the active project, simply click on the name of the current project,
and a list of open projects is displayed for selection.
The Report Type combo box indicates the type of reports that are currently displayed
in the window. By default, All reports are initially displayed. For example,
you might use this option to specify that only Gantt Chart reports
are to be listed in the window.
To change the report type, simply click on the combo box, and a
list of available report types is displayed.
