Working with Reports

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The report generator is undoubtedly the most important component of the ADCAR program. All the data that is entered is useless unless it can be extracted and presented in a manner that allows a user to interpret the data quickly and efficiently. A carefully crafted report will allow you to obtain the information you need immediately.
 
All ADCAR reports can be accessed via the Main Menu command bar as well as the command bar in the related program window. For example, reports related to personnel are accessed from the Reports command in the Personnel window command bar. Likewise for aircraft-related reports (Aircraft Window) and Equipment-related reports (Equipment Window).
 
ADCAR utilizes a template library based reporting engine, instead of "hard coded" reports. The report library is stored in a database table which allows it to be easily expanded and updated.
