Procedure for permanently archiving reports
As you may know, there really is no method in Elite
(using Elite-for-Windows) for permanently archiving
(saving) reports. Elite reports seen in the Report
Manager are intended to be deleted at some point, and
saving them in Report Manager for too long a period
causes other problems.
I created a procedure
for permanently archiving reports.
This procedure is available for any report that
you may want to save permanently.
After exploring various options, I believe the best
method is to copy the report file created on
the local workstation (after "viewing" the report) to
another directory. Then RENAME the file to some appropriate
name so that you can find it later.
If you wish to re-print, but not re-print the entire
report, bring up the saved report in "notepad",
copy the desired text and paste it into a Word
document. Then reformat the Word document for
8-pitch Courier New font and landscape orientation
before printing. This only works if you do not want to print
the entire document and if the report is not very wide.
