When you choose the Report Format option from the Report Manager form, the Report Format form is displayed.

This form enables you to create, copy, revise, or delete a record of the location of the format file in the project control database. An option is also provided that enables you to copy a record and its corresponding ASCII format files.

The format file defines the data that will be reported and the way in which that data will be displayed. Reports cannot be generated unless a format file exists and a record of the file's location has been entered into the project control database.

Create – Displays the Format Creation/Revision form, which enables you to add a new record of a format file in the project control database. For more information, see Format Creation/Revision Form.

Copy – Displays the Format Creation/Revision form, which copies the record of an existing format file from the project control database along with the corresponding ASCII format file. For more information, see Format Creation/Revision Form.

Revise – Displays the Format Creation/Revision form, which modifies a record of an existing format file in the project control database. For more information, see Format Creation/Revision Form.

Delete – Displays the Deletion form, which deletes an existing record of a format file from the project control database. If the record of the format file is deleted, reporting cannot be performed. For more information, see Format Deletion Form.
