Description in Management Reporter

The text in the Description cell appears on a report exactly as the text appears in the row definition.

Note:  The width of the description column in the report is set in the column definition. If the text in the row definition Description column is long, verify the width of the DESC column in the column definition as described in Adding a special formatting option in Management Reporter.

When you use the Insert Rows from... dialog box, the values in the Description column are the segment values or dimension values from the financial data. You can insert rows to add descriptive text (for example, a section heading or a section total) and to add formatting (for example, a line before a total row).

If the report includes a reporting tree, you can include the additional text that is defined for the reporting units in the reporting tree, and you can restrict the use of the additional text to a specific reporting unit. For information about creating additional text entries in a reporting tree, see Adding reporting units to a reporting tree definition.

Use additional text from a reporting tree in the description for a line in a report

  1. Type the additional text code and any other text into the Description cell in the row definition.

    The format of the additional text code is @UnitText#, where # specifies which additional text entry to pull from the reporting tree. The possible values depend on the number of additional text entries that are defined for a reporting unit.

    For example, @UnitText4 specifies the fourth additional text entry for the reporting unit.

  2. Apply formatting as described in Using font styles.
