Course Outline

Module 1: Introduction and Overview

This module introduces Management Reporter 2.0 for Microsoft Dynamics ERP and briefly looks at how it connects to the source system.  In addition, students generate a pre-defined sample report in Report Designer and review its contents in Report Viewer. The associated building blocks are then explored in Report Designer.


Module 2: Navigation

In this module each of the primary components of the user interface is explored. In addition, students define a new building block group that stores the reports, rows, columns, and reporting trees created during the training.


Module 3: Detailed Trial Balance

This module explains how to create the row, column, and report definition, then save and generate the report in Report Designer. The report is then reviewed using drill down to transaction level in the Report Viewer.


Module 4: Detailed Income Statement

This module explains how to design a detailed income statement that reports monthly and year to date results. Students start with the detailed trial balance row definition, and then modify it adding headers, underscores, and sub-totals. When students define the report definition, the completed income statement row definition is associated with the existing current and year to date column definition, and then report headers, font styles, and rounding options are selected. This module also examines adding customized folders to the Report Library in Report Viewer.


Module 5: Working with Reporting Trees

This module introduces how to build and maintain a reporting tree, an optional building block in basic report designs. Reporting trees allow users to define reports based on responsibility centers within the organization and create rollups that are independent of the chart of accounts.


Module 6: Review Plus

This module explores the sample reports and associated building blocks included in the demonstration data, introducing valuable design tips and tricks. The export and import functions are then used to move a sample report and its building blocks into the files used for an upcoming training exercise.


Module 7: Side by Side Reporting

This module explains two methods for filtering data into columns: the dimension filter and the reporting unit. The dimension filter method is based on dimensions, while in the reporting unit method, data in the column definition is related to units in a reporting tree. Row filtering is also introduced by using the related units function in the row definition.


Module 8: Relational Reporting

This module explains the use of both single and multiple base row format codes in the row definition and how to define a column calculation that reports data in relationship to the base row (s).


Module 9: Variance Reporting

This module explains how to design column definitions that report on two common types of variance presentations: over/(under) and favorable/(unfavorable). The XCR print control is introduced to support favorable/(unfavorable) variances when the type of account being reported needs to be considered (i.e. income versus expense accounts).


Module 10: Balance Sheet Reporting

This module looks at how to define a row definition that presents all general ledger accounts in a balance sheet style report. The effect of rounding and how to account for it in the report design is also introduced. Two balance sheet presentations are designed through the column definition: year to date and current year to date compared to prior year end results.


Module 11: Statements of Cash Flow

In this module of training, students begin by reviewing a sample cash flow report. Additionally, the training shows how to fine tune a basic cash flow’s design to accommodate the FASB style of reporting that breaks out activity typically assigned to a single general ledger account, such as separating loan proceeds from loan payments. Students are also introduced to the combined link method of reporting on data in an Office Excel worksheet.


Module 12: Consolidation Reporting

This module explains how to design a reporting tree that accesses both the sample companies, Fabrikam, Inc. (FW) and Fabrikam Europe, Inc. (FWE). This reporting tree is then associated with a column definition to present the companies activity in a side-by-side or consolidating format. Intercompany eliminations are added to the design in two methods: dimension filters in the column definition and external worksheet linking.


Module 13: Report Output and Distribution

This module explains how the options available on the Output and Distribution tab of a report definition affect the presentation of the report.


Module 14: Security

This module explains how to create users and assign them to one of four security roles: Administrator, Designer, Generator, or Viewer. Group and entity assignments applicable to users and report access in Report Viewer is also explored.


Module 15: Maintenance

This module explains how to use the Tools menu options.


Module 16: Data Migration

This module explains how to use the Tools menu options.


Module 17: XBRL

This module explains how to configure Management Reporter to create reports that support XBLR reporting.


Module 18: Appendix

This module supplies supplemental topics.
