TIP: Time spent developing some familiarity with the standard reports will permits creation of custom reports more efficiently. The setup function procedures are also easier if a basic understanding of reports that will be needed once the data has been entered. The best part of the report function is that it is possible to try lots of different choices, memorize them if they seem to be useful, but the original standard reports remain unchanged. Basically, there is no way to “hurt” the software no matter what is done to the reports.
