Reports
Pro/REPORT is a fully associative, optional Pro/ENGINEER module for creating customizedreports. This chapter explains how to combine text, graphics, tables, and data to create a dynamicreport.
Topic
 
 
 
 
Overview
In Drawing mode, you can use Pro/REPORT to create dynamic, customized reports withdrawing views and graphics. Pro/REPORT also works with Pro/HARNESS-MFG, Pro/PIPING,Pro/MFG, and Pro/DIAGRAM. By defining repeat regions, you can add model data to a reportwhich expands and shrinks as the model changes. You can also use the following techniques tomanage the data that appears in a report:
Add filters to eliminate specific types of data from appearing in reports,drawing tables, or layout tables.
Search recursive or top-level assembly data for display.
List duplicate occurrences of model data individually or as a group in areport, drawing table, or layout table.
Directly link assembly component balloons to a customized BOM andautomatically update them when you make assembly modifications.
You can generate several kinds of output using Pro/REPORT such as family tables, associativereports, and graphical wirelists. A common example of a report is a customized Bill of Materials(BOM), such as the one shown in the next figure.
Report with Assembly Views
 
Creating Reports
In Report mode, you can display data in tabular form in reports just as it is in drawing tables. Thesystem takes the data that it reports in the tables directly from a selected model and updates itwhen you change the model. However, you cannot modify all model dimension values andgeometry in Report mode--they are
read-only
. The system gives report files the file extension.rep.
Report Mode Menus
Report mode menus are abbreviated versions of the Drawing modemenus. This mode provides all of the associative abilities that Drawingmode offers, except that you cannot modify the model. Refer to theappropriate chapters of this guide for additional information on drawingcommands.

. The system displays the report as specified and the REPORT menuappears.5.Create a drawing table on the drawing sheet by choosing REPORT >
Table
>
Create
(see
for complete instructions on tablecreation).6.Define a repeat region by choosing TABLE >
Repeat Region
>
Add
(see
).7.Select cells to repeat with model information.
Creating a Repeat Region
8.Choose
Enter Text
and type title text in a row or column outside of therepeat region (unless you want that text to repeat with every occurrence of model data).9.The repeat region in the table must contain symbol parameter information tobe shown in the table (see
