Report View

The report view is used to display the numerical data of the reaction run in form of a data table. This gives the user a chronological overview of the reaction as well as additional information about the limits, batches and comments that have been added. It also enables the user to select a certain range or group of samples to be displayed in the other views. Additional data columns and other options for the view may be adjusted using the Parameter Panel. The view is enabled by default but can be deactivated by unchecking the Show Report View checkbox in the parameter panel. The report view looks like this:

Report Columns

The report view displays the reaction data in tabular form. The following default columns will always be shown:

  • Selection column:
    Each sample of the reaction may be selected or deselected individually. The selection of a sample will affect the display of a data point marker in the Trend View and the display of the sample spectrum in the Overlay View.  For example: Selecting all samples will display all data point markers in the trend view and all sample spectra in the overlay view. The initial sample selection will be done automatically according to the Every Nth sample setting in the parameter panel / reaction wizard (step 5). The user may select/deselect samples during or after the reaction run using the individual checkboxes. A global selection checkbox is located in the table header which allows the selection/deselection of all samples at once. A complete description of all sample selection options is given in the section Sample Selection in the chapter Operations.

  • Sample column:
    Displays the consecutive number of the samples.

  • Time column:
    Displays the reaction time at which the sample was measured. The unit for the time column is defined by the Trend Unit parameter in the parameter panel / reaction wizard (step 5).

  • Trend column:
    Displays the numerical value of the trend evaluation for each sample. The formatting of the numerical value is selected by the parameter
    Number of Displayed Decimals in the parameter panel. The trend column will have the same name as the trend. A separate column for each defined trend will be displayed. If a limit or golden batch has been added to the reaction, the trend column will also be colored according to the sample status (regular sample or outlier). This allows for a quick visual distinction of different samples. The display color is defined in the Limits tab of the parameter panel.

In addition to the default columns the user may select more columns to add extra sample information:

  • Measurement date column:
    Displays the full measurement date for each sample.

  • Sample name columns:
    Displays the full sample name for each measurement. The sample name is linked to the reaction name and can be edited in the
    General Parameter tab of the parameter panel.

Report Rows

Apart from the reaction data display that is defined by the Report View Columns, additional information can be displayed by inserting special rows into the table:

  • Phase information rows:
    If the option Show Phase Information is checked in parameter panel / reaction wizard (step 5), an extra row with a different color will be inserted for every new phase that is entered during the reaction run. This helps to visually represent the segmentation of the reaction data into phases.

  • Show comments rows:
    If the option Show comments is checked in parameter panel / reaction wizard (step 5), an extra row with a different color will be inserted for every new comment that is added to the reaction. The comment will also be shown as vertical bar in the trend view. A detailed description of how to add comments to a reaction is given in the chapter Add/Remove Comments.
