A PROMODAG report options file
is a text file containing options for a report. Report options files contain a whole set of options for a given report (date, server, sorting order...). By default, those files are saved under the %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Documents\Promodag\Reports\9\ folder (or %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Documents\Promodag\Reports\9\ for operating systems prior to Windows Vista). The extension of report option files is *.pro.
Report options files have two main purposes :
- Save a typical configuration for a frequently used report (that can be distributed to others users);
- Save a report configuration to automate reports.
To create and save a report options file, you must select a report template from the Templates
menu, select the configuration options you want for the report, and then click the Save
button on the template configuration screen.
The ability to save your own reports option files and to manage your own Favorites
menu gives you the possibility to configure your favorite reports. Your reports are available in one single click!
