Viewing Reports

Because each template expects a certain data format to produce a useful graph, not all templates can be applied to all report queries. You will receive an error message if you attempt to generate a report through an incompatible report template. For example, selecting the Four Values Per Row As Horizontal Bar template to display the Requirements Status Overview report works because this particular Microsoft Excel template requires exactly the four values, failed, passed, not executed, and not covered that the report query delivers.

To generate a report:

  1. In the menu, click Reports > Details View.
  2. In the Reports tree, select the report that you want to generate.
  3. Click the Report tab.
  4. Click the link <Click here to choose a report template>. The Select Report Template dialog box displays.
  5. Select the template you wish to use.
  6. Click OK to display the report.
