Manioulating Reports

Post by LABTS »

In the Power Church system is there a way to manipulate a report? There are certain reports which have all t he right information, however, would I be able to change the location of the address or something of that nature??

There is a custom report writer that you can use to create reports from scratch. Unfortunately, the built-in reports cannot be manipulated in the program. At best, you can save the report to an Excel file and modify it outside the program.

Where would I be able to find the custom writer?

It depends on the PCPlus module:

In the Membership module it can be found in the following menu locations: <Membership Function *> -> Other Output -> Custom Reports - * (Family Mailing List, Personal Profiles, Activities & Skills, etc).

In Accounting it may reside under the Other Output submenu, or it can be a submenu itself.

In Contributions its under Other Output.

Take a look through the menus, you'll find each area's custom report function very easily.

Two different areas: Contributions Reports are standard reports, they cannot be changed. If the standard reports does not provide what you want, you have to create the report you want from scratch using Custom Reports.

That said what are you looking for?
