Report Parameter and Filtering

Information is the key to improving your productivity. Sales Analysis by the ship to customer can give you the key to unlocking that business. Who bought the most? Are some of my customers large enough to ship directly instead of through a broker? Can you tell me what the returns have been from all of the places I have shipped? How much money did I make off each location I shipped to?

Once an invoice is saved sales analysis can immediately be produced that answers these questions and much more. Select the sales analysis option and print the sales for the first quarter. Notice that any two dates can be used. Ship Date and Invoice Date are supported, too.

This report gives you the sales by ship to customer for the first quarter of 2001 but it give you only the negative invoice amounts. This could be the returns you have experienced by each ship to customer.

Limits on every report within ActiveApplications gives you the ability to create reports that are defined by your needs and selections. AA can let you see more of the information you need by setting limits. What information do you need that we can get for you?

UDS follows several guidelines when designing reports. The amount of information that must be displayed determines the size of the report. If the necessary information can be displayed in portrait on your paper size it will. A smaller font size will be used until the type would be unreadable if made smaller. If the necessary information is too wide to fit portrait the computer will switch to landscape mode. If the required information is still too wide legal paper (8 by 14 inches) will automatically be selected in the printer. Your printer and print driver will determine how the commands are handled by your system. UDS makes it easy for you to get the information you must have.

The report samples displayed in these examples are captured directly from the report program that generates the report. Built into every UDS report is the ability to view it on the screen or place the report directly into Word or Excel format if those applications are available on your computer. Export it into one of several other file formats is available, too. 

Easy integration into Microsoft Office is a priority with UDS programming staff. You will be more productive when using Active Applications because of the Office integration features
