Changing Report Formats

Note:

This procedure does not apply to freestyle reports.

  To change report formats:

  1. Select Reports, then Standard Reports, and then Report Formats.

  2. On Alternate Formats, select formats:

    • None

      Default—Displays values in currency format.

    • Currency and Growth Rate

      Displays values in growth rates from the prior period. Growth rates for periods under a year are based on the same time period length from the prior period, even if the prior period is a year. For example, if 2004 is modeled in quarters and 2003 as a year, the growth rate for 1st quarter 2004 is based on 4th quarter 2003. The value for 4th quarter 2003 is based on actual number of days.

    • Currency and Common Size

      Displays values in a common-size (percentage) format. This alternative format is only available for the Income Statement, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement. Common-size values are calculated for the Income Statement and Cash Flow Statement based on Sales (v1000) and the Balance Sheet based on Total Assets (v2490).

    • Currency and Growth Rate Over Same Period One Year Ago

      Displays values in growth rates from the same period in the prior year. Growth rates for periods under a year are based on the same time period length from the same period in the prior year. For example, if 2004 is modeled in quarters and 2003 as a year, the growth rate for 1st quarter 2004 is calculated based on the 1st quarter 2003. The value for 1st quarter 2003 is based on actual number of days.

    • Current and Named Scenario

      Displays values for the current scenario and a second scenario select in the Scenarios list. You have options for displaying variances between the two scenarios:

      • Currency

        The currency difference.

      • Percent

        The percentage difference.

      • Both Currency and Percent

        The difference in both currency and percent.

      • None

        Displays accounts only—no variance columns.

  3. Optional: Select Suppress Zero Values to display only accounts containing non-zero values.

    Default—Reports hide accounts with zero values.

  4. Optional: Select Apply to All Reports to apply the format to all reports.

    Without this option, only the currently selected report is modified.

  5. Click OK.
