Editing Reports

(last updated May 30, 2017)

There will come a time when you need to edit a report you previously created. If you are familiar with how to add reports, you will find editing them very easy by following these steps:

  1. Select the Report Manager option from the View menu. Excel displays the Report Manager dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Report Manager dialog box.

  3. From the list of available reports, select the one you want to edit.
  4. Click on the Edit button. Excel displays the Edit Report dialog box. (See Figure 2.) The only difference between this dialog box and the Add Report dialog box is that all of the fields are already filled in.
  5. Figure 2. The Edit Report dialog box.

  6. Make any changes you desire to the information in the dialog box.
  7. When finished, click on the OK button. The changed report definition is saved.
