How to Generate an Instrument Index
The instrument index is a commonly required report. It is stored and configured the same as other Instrument Manager database reports, but has its own menu entry for generation.
Instrument Index Generation
The instrument index report has its own menu item for generation.
Select "Generate Instrument Index" from the Instrument Manager File menu.
The default configuration of the instrument index will produce a database file named "Report Database" containing a table named "Instrument Index". The database file will be created in the same directory as the project.
Configure the Instrument Index
The instrument index report configuration is stored in the project database. The default configuration supplied with Instrument Manager may not be suitable for all situations. The instrument index report can be loaded and modified using the report wizard.
Select "Configure Database Report" from the Instrument Manager File menu.
Select the "InstrumentIndex" report from the list and click the [Next] button.
Modify the instrument index as required, following the instructions on the Report Wizard.
Click the [Finish] button to exit the dialog and generate the report.
Click the [Cancel] button to exit the dialog without generating the report.
