Adding and Editing Report Elements

Reports created using the Country-Specific Reports SuiteApp are based on HTML/XML report templates. These tables contain a number of cells which you need to fill with the NetSuite data. There are two different data types that you can add to your reports:

Every record can be deactivated by selecting the Inactivate box. Deactivated records can't be used in your reports; however, they are not deleted and can still activate them and use them later.


Other types of variables (system and filter) are added directly to your HTML/XML report template. It means that you don’t have to create separate records for them. To learn more about the system variables, see System variables. To learn more about the filter variables, see Filter variables.


Reports delivered by original NetSuite Localization SuiteApps are locked. It is not possible to edit them; you will not be allowed to add any variables and filters to them (or to delete them). The reason is that these reports are already tailored to suit the country-specific needs and they might be corrupted by any additional change. However, you can create copies of these original reports and edit them as necessary. For more information about making these copies, see Copying reports.

The only element of locked reports that you are allowed to edit is the Accounting Context (because its content depends on the accounting contexts currently available in your NetSuite account). To learn more about accounting contexts in NetSuite, see Accounting Contexts.
