Report Window

Report windows are used to display the reports you print to the screen. Below we show an example of a report from the Nominal Ledger module. You can scroll up and down in the window, and search for information in the report.

Below the Button Bar there is a report header, which shows the name of the report and the selection on which it is based. This is important information, since you can produce every report using different selections.

Below this is the report itself, always shown to its full width in its own resizeable window. You can scroll up and down through the report using the scroll bar on the right-hand side or using the PgDn, PgUp, Home and End keys on the keyboard.

Since each report is shown in its own window, you can print several reports to screen at the same time, totally independently. This gives Standard ERP an unmatched reporting power. You can for example show two versions of the Balance Sheet simultaneously, in two different windows. In one you might show the result without simulated transactions and in the other with simulations. You can easily extract information from Standard ERP that would require some complicated manoeuvring to obtain from other accounting systems.

There is no practical limit to the number of reports that you can print to screen simultaneously, and you can freely mix reports from the different modules. Since windows in Standard ERP are completely independent, you can mix report windows with record windows and lists from different parts of the system.

In the following picture we show an example where four reports from the Nominal Ledger and Sales Ledger are shown at the same time.
