What are report categories?

Before you create a report, you can create a Report Category to suit your needs if one does not already exist. A category is a folder that contains the reports that you create in either the Listing or Payroll Reports window. 



The category remains hidden until you attach a report to it. If you do not save your new report definition to a specific category, it is automatically saved to the Uncategorised category. Go to iQ: Reports Reports window Category Maint.. button Record Filter Categories window
