Window: Report & Process

Description: Maintain Reports & Processes

Help: The Report & Process Window is used to define the parameters and access rules for every Report and Process within the system. This window is for System Admin use only.

Tab: Report & Process

Description: Define Report & Process

Help: The Report and Process Tab defines each report and process run in the system. Please note that the Print Format is only used for Document Print when you want to share a common format defined on System level. For normal reports and formats, you would not define a Print Format here, but modify the generated print format and set it as the default.

Active The record is active in the system There are two methods of making records unavailable in the system: One is to delete the record, the other is to de-activate the record. A de-activated record is not available for selection, but available for reports.

There are two reasons for de-activating and not deleting records: (1) The system requires the record for audit purposes. (2) The record is referenced by other records. E.g., you cannot delete a Business Partner, if there are invoices for this partner record existing. You de-activate the Business Partner and prevent that this record is used for future entries.
