Manage Your Reports

Manage Your Reports

Do you have a single MS Excel file from which you print many different reports? Are they the same set of reports each time? (You know—these pages for person A, then other pages for person B—each time?)

What do you do?

Do you find yourself constantly resetting the print range so that each person gets exactly what they need—no more, no less?

Or, do you print the whole thing then spend time figuring out the different reports while standing at the copier?

A bit tiring?

Yeah, I think so too.

Want a better way to organize the different reports?

Maybe one that doesn’t require you to set and reset printing over and over again?

Sounds good doesn’t it?

Are you ready for a solution where the settings for each person’s individual report are stored so you don’t have to keep resetting them each time?

Well, as you may have already guessed we’ve got one.

Let your manager keep track of it all—your Report Manager to be specific.

MS Excel has a wonderful little add-in called Report Manager and keeping track of the different views and scenarios for each individual is exactly its purpose.

A specific definition—straight from the online help—is that Report Manager, “combines a sequence of sheets, views, and scenarios to create a report that you can print”.
