Simulation Name: Running a Report
Simulation Mode: Let me try

Scenario: Reports in EIS are used to take data in the system and put it in a meaningful output. There are many different reports to run in EIS and your security access will determine what reports are available for you to run. In this lesson you will practice how to run a report in EIS.

Screen Name: #1: People Demographics - Microsoft Internet Explorer

Step: Click REPORTS in the EIS Menu "Hot Area" REPORTS in the EIS Menu
User Prompt: Access all available reports.
Screen Name: #2: Reports List - Microsoft Internet Explorer

Step: Click underlined report NAME "Hot Area" underlined report NAME
User Prompt: The first thing to do is to select the FORMAT for your report. The default is HTML. HTML report formats tend to compile faster and then the information in them can be copied and pasted into other programs (like Microsoft Word). PDF (ACROBAT) reports take longer to compile, but tend to look nicer when printed. Let's keep the HTML format. Run the second report in the list.
Screen Name: #3: https://bdsnet.dbds.state.me.us:7002 - Report Parameters - Microsoft Internet Explorer

Step 1: Select REGION 2 from the [combo box name] drop-down list.
Step 2: Click NEXT button "Hot Area" NEXT button
User Prompt: Many reports have parameters (things you need to choose for your report). In this example, we want to run the report just for Region 2.
Screen Name: #4: https://bdsnet.dbds.state.me.us:7002/eis/ControlServlet - Microsoft Internet Explorer

Step: Click CLOSE button "Hot Area" CLOSE button
User Prompt: Now we can see the report. From here we can either print it or just view it and exit. For this example, let's just exit the report.
Screen Name: #5: Reports List - Microsoft Internet Explorer

Summary: You have now practiced how to run a report in EIS.
