Introducing Quest Reporter : Reporting Examples : Action-enabled Reporting : Working with the Action-enabled Report Display

Working with the Action-enabled Report Display
You can assess the report information in an action-enabled report using
In the Attributes node view, you can right-click an object, select Edit, then select an attribute. You can then change the value as required.
When the Attributes node is selected, only those with an asterix (*) in the column header for the attribute can be changed.
If you are viewing attributes that can be changed, there are two columns displayed: <attribute name> (Collected) and <attribute name> (New). If the attribute cannot be changed, the New column is not displayed.
By default, the first attribute displayed below the Attributes node is displayed in the first column in the upper-right pane of the report display. To change the attribute displayed in this column, right-click in the column header and select another attribute.
To change network information interactively
Right-click a report template and select Run Action Enabled Report.
After the report is generated, the Action Enabled Report dialog box opens.
Expand the Attributes node to browse the attributes.
If you select to edit, the input method depends on the data type of the attribute. For example, if you change the expiry date attribute for an account, a Date and Time dialog box opens.
Click Apply to run the action script or to save any changes.
Click Close.
While the use of action-enabled reporting immediately changes the selected values, these changes will not be saved to the Reporter database, and therefore will not be visible, until the next report collection is done.
When a report is generated, a log file is created that lists all the actions which occurred during report generation. Other information, such as the version of Reporter, the user who generated the report, and the computer where the report was generated, is also included at the beginning of the log. The default folder path where these log files are located is C:\Program files\Quest Software\Quest Management Suite\Reporter\ReporterLogs. For information about changing the default path, see Configuring Log Settings.
