Extract Benefits

  • Provides electronic and/or hard copy documentation on report design content and visual report layout.

  • Provides a text file that  can be saved and then compared to earlier Extract files to identify and analyze report file differences.  Note that the RptDiff utility directly compares any two report files and does not require an intermediate file.
