Sample report file formats
The following report file formats are available for emailing and viewing: “MS-DOS
Text”, “PDF”, “Rich Text Format”, “HTML”, “Comma-Delimited Text”, “Excel
NOTES: 8e6 recommends using the PDF and HTML file formats over other file format
selections—in particular for detail reports—since these files display and print in a format
that is easiest to read. Lengthy text in PDF, HTML, and Rich Text Format files wraps
around within the column so all text is captured without displaying truncated.
Comma-Delimited Text and Excel report columns may display with truncated text, but an
entire column can be viewed by mani-pulating the column width in the generated report
file. These reports can then be printed at a smaller percentage than normal size in order to
accommodate all text.
For MS-DOS Text reports, text may display truncated—in parti-cular for lengthy usernames
and URLs in detail reports—but an entire column can be viewed by scrolling to the right.
Since there is no way to manipulate text in the generated report file, the printed report may
display with truncated text. However, the maximum amount of text can be captured by
printing the report in the landscape format.
