Saving detail report layouts to external report files

You can save the layout of an existing detail report to an external report file. Then you use this external file as needed; for example, to customize the report layout outside Alloy Navigator .

To save the report layout to an external report file:

  1. Open the details window for any object of the target class (for example, if you want to change a detail report for Work Orders, open any Work Order).

  2. On the Module menu, choose Print > Manage Reports. The Manage Reports windows appears.

  3. Right-click the report and choose Save As from the pop-up menu.

  4. Browse for the desired folder where you want to save the file. By default, the file name is the same as the report name. If you want to change it, type in a new name in the File name field.

  5. Click Save.
