The Report Writer module is a powerful, flexible, information retrieval
and analysis tool. This sophisticated product combines a powerful
database that has relational capabilities with an easy-to-use custom
report writer. Users determine what data they want and how its

displayed, passed directly to Microsoft Excel®, or exported
to a variety of spreadsheet and database products using flat ASCII
files. Once established, reports can be saved for reuse and shared
among users within a department or company.

entire organization to reuse. The sort order of the selected data
may then be determined.
