Enterprise Reporter 3.2.2 - Report Manager User Guide

Quest Enterprise Reporter Report Manager Introducing the Report Manager Running and Scheduling Reports Creating and Editing Reports Troubleshooting Issues with Enterprise Reporter

Using Saved Parameters

Once you have parameters entered, you can save them as the default parameters for that report. If you already had default parameters saved, they are overwritten with the new values.

When you display the Report Details view, the parameters are already entered, so you can run the report with the default parameters or edit them as needed. If you edit parameters, you can return to the current default parameters at any time.

Click Save parameters as default.
Click Restore default parameters.

Some reports have a parameter that allows you to expand nested group members and specify how they are displayed in the report. The five ways you can handle nested groups and their members are as follows:

Optionally you can add more fields for the nested group members to be displayed in the report and save it for future use.

When running a report, click Add Fields at the Expand Nested Groups parameter.
Optionally, click Save parameters as default to save the fields for the next use of this report.

Searching for a Report

You can search for reports based on the report name, the author, and text in the report description. Searching is performed within the selected container or category. As you type in the search field, your report list is dynamically narrowed down.

If you type more than one word, the Report Manager looks for either of the words—it creates an OR condition. If you want to search for a phrase, enclose it in quotations. For example, if you search for Boston Office, you will see all reports that have Boston and all reports that have Office. If you search for "Boston Office", you will see all reports that have that exact phrase.

Viewing Report Properties

If you want to see how a report was designed, you can open the Edit Report dialog box and examine the settings. If the report is in the Library, you can view the properties but cannot make any changes. If the report is in Published Reports, you can view the properties but only reporting administrators can make changes. See Editing Reports for more information on modifying the report definition.

Previewing a Report

Preview is a quick way to see what your report will look like. It returns a shortened version of the report, without prompting for parameter values.

If there is no data in the report, it is possible the relevant data has not yet been collected. For more information, see your Enterprise Reporter administrator or see the Quest Enterprise Reporter Configuration Manager User Guide in the Technical Documentation.
