Introduction to Customer Reports

Customer reports are located in the Sales Ledger. Use the Modules menu to ensure you are in the Sales Ledger and then select 'Reports' from the File menu or click [Reports] in the Master Control panel. Then, double-click the appropriate item in the list. A specification window will then appear, where you can decide what is to be included in the report. Leave all the fields in this window blank if the report is to cover all the Customers in the database. If it is necessary to restrict the coverage of the report, use the fields as described individually for each report.

It is often possible to report on a selection range, such as a range of Customers, or a range of Items. To do this, enter the lowest and highest values of the range, separated by a colon. For example, to report on Customers 001 to 010, enter "001:010" in the Customer field. Depending on the field, the sort used might be alpha or numeric. In the case of an alpha sort, a range of 1:2 would also include 100, 10109, etc.

Using the options at the bottom of the specification window, determine the print destination of the report (the default is to print to screen). You can initially print to screen and subsequently send the report to a printer using the Printer icon.

Once you have entered the reporting criteria and have chosen a print destination, click [Run].
