Can the output report or results grids be customized to export the information the way we want it?
As mentioned in the online help, the Results> Output report command permits the user to specify the level of detail included on reports generated on the current model. The report can be limited to selected (highlighted) points or criteria specified in the Result> Filter options. In addition, the report will be generated in consideration of the current load combinations and the modal range. These printed reports have *.RPT / *.OUT file extension and can be opened by any text editing software for further manipulation.
In addition, using Results> Grids command will provide a window consisting of tabs with tabulated data that are easy to highlight (i.e select the top, most left cell in the grid to highlight the entire grid) and copy into other applications like MS Excel or Ms Word for further manipulation.
Furthermore, AutoPIPE's File > Export> Input Database or Results Database, will export information to a MS Access database (*.MDB) file. One limitation, not all of the sub-reports will be available in these exported files (i.e. General Stress reports, etc..). If a report is found to be missing a sub-section that you would like exported to an MDB file, please log a Service Request asking for a new enhancement to be logged on your behave.
Once the *.MDB file has been created, it can be opened in MS Access or any other software that can read such a file format, where more powerful manipulations tools can be applied thus creating customized reports as needed.
