With FishXing you have the ability to create a summary report customized according to your data requirements. This custom report can include text, tables, graphs and pictures.
Choosing and arranging items for your report
When you choose Report on the Navigation Bar or Main Menu a list of items that are appropriate for this crossing will appear. You can select any of the items by highlighting the topic in the left panel and pressing Add to Report. An item can be selected more than once. Once items are selected they can be reordered as desired by selecting them and choosing the Up and Down buttons.

View Report – After choosing and ordering report items press View Report. This will generate a report on screen in a new window. The report cannot be edited, but several options are available for formatting:
Edit Headers where you can type custom headers and footers and page numbers that will appear on each page.
Page Setup where you can change the paper size, orientation, and margins.
Save as RTF – After choosing and ordering report items press Save as RTF. This will create a document in RTF (Rich Text Format) that can be edited in a word processing program. This option allows you to create reports that are fully customized, and is a good alternative when the Print View formatting is not acceptable.
Saving Report Formats
When you create a report that will be used multiple times you can save the format by choosing Save. Give the format a descriptive name at the prompt and choose Save.
