The diagram in Figure 1 - 8, as well as the steps below, describe the FSG report building process. Please note that many of the steps are optional. The simplest reports require only steps 2 and 5 to define the report and steps 6 and 7 to run it. As your report requirements become more complicated, you will also need to perform many of the optional steps.
