Report Templates

Report templates are ASCII text files that contain statements for creating reports.

Report templates are similar to session files except they contain parameters which hold string or numeric data. Report parameters are specified in the Reports panel. The most common use for a parameter in a report definition is to hold the filename of a data file which is read when the report is generated.

A report can have any number of parameters. There are four types of parameters:
  • Filename
  • String
  • Integer
  • Double

Parameters can also hold filter frequencies, scale factors and annotation text.
