Output Screen (output)

Following is the Output screen for Graphic Tables (other output screens are similar):



Report for output: US_Lab_Summary is shown above

This is the same report list as in the report creation application and is specific to the type of report being output. It is located near the top of the screen, immediately above the report tabs.

Properties image\Properties_Button_shg.gif

This is the same properties dialog seen in the report creation application. You can change some of the properties for the current output run. However, changes will only register while the report is selected. The changes are not saved permanently. This is useful when you want to test some settings without making them permanent. To make a permanent change, you must make it in the page dialog in the report creation application. Note that some properties will be disabled when accessed in Output, indicating they can only be changed in the report creation application.

Command Scripting image\Script_Button_shg.gif

Record (Write Script) the current settings or playback (Execute Script) previously recorded settings. See Command Scripting for details.

Preview image\Preview_Button_shg.gif

Send the output to the screen. You can also press Ctrl+W or select the File:Preview menu item.

Print image\Print_Button_shg.gif

You can also press Ctrl+P or select the File:Print menu item.

Project database used for Output: Help File.gpj is shown above

The database file shown will be the last one accessed in the Output or Input applications. To change it, type a new one or use the Browse Button image\Browse_Button_shg.gif to select.

If you mark the Multi Project option the Data Source will change from a single project selection option to a grid where you will be able to select one or more projects. This option allows you to print reports from more than one project at a time and can be very useful with Fence reports when you want to span adjacent projects.

Note that if you select one or more projects that are not fully compatible with the selected report you will get blank data areas on the reports and a possible error message indicating that the report is not compatible with one or more projects.

Clients that need to do more advanced reporting than the Multi Project option provides are advised to upgrade to gINT Professional Plus. Please contact the gINT Software Sales Department for upgrade options.

Records or PointIDs to output

If left blank, all applicable records in the database will be output. You can type a list of records, separating each record with commas, or use the Pick Button image\Browse_Button_shg.gif to select. With records identified with more than one key segment, you must separate the keys with a pipe (|) character, for example, B-1|3,B-1|5 would output records in Point ID B-1 at depths of 3 and 5.

Page Range to output

The page range text box appears only in Log, Graphic Table, and Text Table output. Let's say you had a deep borehole that required 15 pages of output. Reviewing the output, you found typographical errors on page 3, 5, 6, 7, and 10. After correcting the errors, you could specify the borehole in the record list and type 3,5-7,10 in the Pages text box. Only those pages will print.

Initial Figure Number

The Initial Figure Number only affects the System Data Item <<InitFigNum>>. <<InitFigNum>> takes its initial value from the Initial Figure Number. If blank, 1 is used. <<InitFigNum>> then prints the Initial Figure Number plus the current page number minus 1. For example, on a multiple page log output, if the Initial Figure Number is 4, <<InitFigNum>> would print 4 on the first log page, 5 on the second, 6 on the third, etc.

Export to File

All reports support export to GDW (gINT Drawing), DXF (AutoCAD® Drawing Interchange), and BMP (Windows Bitmap) files. Click the Browse Button image\Browse_Button_shg.gif to bring up the dialog to specify the file type, name, and location. See the Export to File command for details. Text Documents and Text Tables support additional file formats. See those reports in this section under their respective Output topic for details. Note that this button will be disabled until a file has been selected.

Report-Type Specific Output Options (area above the filter grid)

Only Fences and Text Tables have items in the Report Specific Options area. See those reports in this section under their Output topic for details.

Override Sort Criteria (Sort 1 and Sort 2 fields and Z to A check boxes)

Only Graphic Tables and Text Tables have Override Sort Criteria. See those reports in this section under their respective Output topic for details.

Data Tool (in the Filter area of the screen)

The Data Tool shows the tables and fields appropriate to the current project database and report. You can paste the currently selected TABLE.Field into the Field row of the Filters area or the Sort 1 and 2 fields. Remember to first click in the desired field before pasting.

Filters (the large grid area in the bottom half of the screen)

Filters allow you to limit your output to a certain segment of the database. See the Filters topic in this section for details.
