The program has a few settings and options that help you make your report more flexible and manageable.
These settings are:
|Output format||Off||A set of check-boxes allows you to select one or more output formats. The current version of the DTM Schema Reporter Online Help supports RTF (Microsoft Word compatible), HTML (three options - use drop-down menu to select), XML, PDF, CHM (Windows HTML Help), MS Excel and plain text target formats. You can create a report with one or more formats at once.|
|HTML Document type||Single||It defines HTML output type: single document, frameset or one document per database object.|
|Save the report to||Empty||These edit boxes allow you to specify one or more output file name.|
|Report title||See settings||The program uses this string as report title.|
|Open the created report with...||Off||The program automatically opens the results with an application associated with the selected report type (MS Word, Internet Explorer, Notepad etc.) after execution.|
|The format for automatic open||N/A||The program can open only one output file automatically. This drop-down menu allows the user to select the format that will be opened.|
|Include summary information||On||The option switches on or off report header that includes general information like connection properties, report date, product version, etc.|
|Table of Content||On||Include or no table of content for DOC/RTF and HTML output.|
You must specify the file name to save the newly created report to for at least one format. Use "Browse" buttons to select destination file.
Warning: when you change the target report format (RTF, HTML, XML, CHM, PDF, Excel*, or plain text), be sure that the file extension
complies with the report type. Otherwise, you will have a problem when opening that file with the associated
application. In most cases, you can use $DATE$ and $TIME$ macros in the file name to make reporting output more flexible.
* - installed Microsoft Word is required.
The program saves the major settings and options even if you don't use project files.
