    Create a Quick Report (2019)

    One of the most important tasks in data management is report generation. The Quick Report Editor is one of the tools used to design reports. You use the Quick Report Editor to create reports based on a selection of records. These can be ad-hoc reports intended only for one-time use or they can be save to be used perpetually.

    With Quick Reports you can:

    • Produce a list of records.
    • Create breaks and subtotal lines.
    • Compute calculations such as sums and averages.
    • Apply formatting such as fonts, font styles and borders.
    • Export the report as a file that can be imported into spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel®.

    The Quick Report Editor will produce a report from a current selection of records. Before you print a Quick Report, set the current selection to the list of records to be included in the report using one of the query methods described here. The following is an example of a Quick Report.

    What Can Scripting Do For Me?

    Scripting is a way for us to help you support your operations with custom features without the cost, overhead and support issues normally associated with custom software. Essentially a script is a unique piece of software that adds functions to AcctVantage without modifying our core application or "source code".

    When we install a script for you, that script is stored within your AcctVantage system as data, just like a client record or a PO that you've written. When you take advantage of an AcctVantage upgrade your scripts get upgraded right along with the rest of your data. In this way, you can take advantage of a unique, customized, AcctVantage experience without being left behind on out-of-date "one off" versions of AcctVantage.

    Scripts can be used for a number of different functions.

    • Enforce workflows or business rules that are unique to your operation
    • Specialized imports or exports of data
    • Custom reports
    • Add features like custom calculations, work flow management, etc.
    • Perform scheduled tasks such as emailing certain reports.

    Scripting is a powerful tool that can add a lot of value to your AcctVantage system. If you have an idea of a function or task that you wish AcctVantage could do for you, contact AcctVantage Support and we'll help you make it happen!

    Scripting is so powerful that you could, if you weren't careful, cause a lot trouble. Therefore, script writing is restricted to AcctVantage's Professional Services staff.
