Reports – Common features

MusiFind Pro includes several pre-formatted professional reports usable for a variety of situations with selectable record inclusion, printer and printer properties, fonts, and report-specific features.

 

Each report begins with a “Print Report” wizard. The settings for each specific report are saved between sessions.

The first step is to select an order. If there is only one order possible for a report, this step is skipped.

The second step is to select whether to include all items, selected items, or use the query wizard.

If selected items are to be printed, the next step is to pick which items. Highlight the criteria to edit, and press Select. The Clear button clears the currently highlighted criteria.

Most range forms give an option to select from standard lists and dictionaries. Leave a field blank to indicate the range should be open-ended (eg. in this example, all albums from Sizzlin Pop 90 to ZZZZZZZZZ will be included).

Match forms allow you to select using wildcards (eg. Wild*The, Be?tles*).

Each report may be redirected to a specific printer, previewed (and printed from the preview), and set to use a specific font.

-      Every standard report has a meaningful header indicating the order, and whether the report includes all items, selected items, or the results of a query.

-      Each column has a label.

-      The first column is the primary field in the sort order. In this example the report is sorted by song title, so the song title appears first.

-      Every standard report has a footer that gives the number of items printed, and if only selected items are printed, the filter that was applied on the report.

-      Every standard report includes the date of printing, and page numbers.
