Run user reports in the desktop client

Run user reports to obtain listings for Dimensions CM objects or obtain statistical information from your base database.

For details on the reports you can request, or how to set up your own reports, see Reports and published views.

Note: This option is for running reports using the Dimensions RUR function. There is a newer more powerful reporting capability provided with the Report Builder. See Run Report Builder.
