Report Tasks
Using the Application > Working with Application Tasks > Report Tasks > Report Tasks

The reporting engine is currently based on Microsoft Office products Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint. The engine supports all Office versions starting from Office 2000.
In the ARTeMIS Modal software the reporting type is enabled only if the corresponding Office application (Word or PowerPoint) is installed.


Generally there are two types of report content which is used in these reports:

 Currently the reporting feature is available in the following Analysis tasks:

The report generating is consisted from two major tasks. First one is gathering the report data described below from Step1 until Step4. The second task is generating the report and saving the document described from  Step5 until Step7.

 You can start creating reports in few easy steps regardless of the report type you may choose:

  1. Perform any of the available operations in the window until the window content is something that you would like to export into a report i.e. position the 3D object in the Geometry window, create modes to be displayed in the table of the Modes window, display the desired function in the Processed Data or Modal Estimation Window etc.
  2. Resize the window. The exported image would have the same size as the displayed window.
  3. In each window in the Tool bar there is the Report button. When you click on it currently there is only one option available “Send To report As Is”. Click on this option and the image will be stored in memory.
  4. Perform steps from 1-3 for each window that you want to be present in the report.
  5. Once you have gathered significant report data, click on the Report task (next to the Setup and Analysis tasks). As soon as you click on the button a drop down will appear with the report types available to be performed on your system.
  6. Edit the Word Document / Power Point Presentation to meet you requirements.
  7. Save the Word Document / Power Point Presentation by clicking on the Save button in the Office toolbar. 


After you select the type you prefer (Step5), the corresponding Office document will be opened and will populate the document based on the selected template.

Note: Have in mind that the report generator is looking for predefined bookmarks and positions in the templates. If the bookmark is found then the corresponding report data is being placed at that location. If the bookmark is not found any remaining report data which is not already added in the report is being placed at the end of the document or presentation. Check out the Report Preferences for more information

Once the document is initially populated, you can review it, modify it, save it or disregard the report by simply switching to another template type or task.


Data Organizer

In the Data Organizer, when the Report task is active you will see a hierarchy of the available report types, and under each report type the available report templates will be displayed. The report templates are located under the Templates directory in the application installation directory. Depending on which templates are available in this folder, the Data Organizer hierarchy is being created.In the Data Organizer a check mark will be displayed next to the report template which is currently being used.

You can easily switch to another report template from any of the available report types by simply right clicking on the report template in the Data Organizer and selecting the “Use this template” option. Once you click on this option the old report will be disregarded and the new report will be generated based on the newly selected template.
