What are My Reports?

As you use Enterprise Reporter, you will find that there are reports that you use a lot, or reports that you want to customize. You can store these in the My Reports container. You decide what reports appear in My Reports by copying them from other containers (see Copying Reports ) or creating them from scratch (see Creating New Reports ). My Reports is unique to each user, so different users will have different contents in their My Reports container. You can see your My Reports container on any computer that you are logged in to. You can create your own categories to keep these reports organized for easy access (see Working with Report Categories ). Reports in this container may be scheduled (see Scheduling Reports ).
