External reports request module

The External reports request module allows invoking external procedures of report generation by means of the backQORT terminal menu and importing generated report to the system.

Main features

  • Call external reports from the backQORT terminal menu
  • Possibility to use both backQORT and external system data
  • Arbitrary report forms
  • Availability of simultaneous generation of several reports from either one or different terminals.

To generate an external report, parameters are initially set in the external report template file (*.xml), with specifying the report name and its key parameters. When the report is called with the corresponding menu item, a user is prompted specifying parameter values, following which the system activates an external application for its generation.

The module allows importing reports in two ways:

  • In xml files (in this case reports are available as a backQORT terminal table)
  • In files opened by Windows applications (MS Word, MS Excel, etc.)

External reports requests can be made by users with corresponding rights.
The number of integrations with external applications within one module copy is unlimited.
