Create a Report Log File

A log file describes the report setup file report-generation settings and components. A log file can be used for many purposes, including:

  • As a debugger

  • As a reference to a report setup file

  • To share information about a report setup file through email

A log file includes the following information:

  • Report setup file outline

  • Components and their attributes

  • Generation status messages currently displayed in the Generation Status tab

To generate a log file, click File > Log File. An HTML version of the log file with the name <report_template_file_name_log>.html is saved in the same folder as the report setup file.
