FRx How-To: Print FRx Reports to a PDF

For whatever reason, you NEED your FRx reports saved in a PDF file!

Good news! It’s not a built-in feature in FRx, but in this video we show you how this can be done.

There are other PDF printer applications besides PrimoPDF you can use, but I personally like to use this one even when it’s not FRx related. It’s downloadable at: http://download.cnet.com/PrimoPDF/3000-18497_4-10264577.html?tag=mncol;6

Hope this helps!

FRx Question: Can I Add Our Company Logo to a Report?

So you want to impress your boss by adding the company logo to your reports in FRx? 

Short Answer: Not possible in FRx.

Unfortunately, this feature is not available in FRx 6.7.  I doubt that Microsoft will make this feature available. Their last major Service Pack was back in 2008.  But, if absolutely necessary, you can export the report to Excel or to a PDF and add it there. That’s probably the closest you’re going to get.

The good news is that Management Reporter (FRx’s replacement product) does have this capability. Before you decide to migrate to Management Reporter, please make yourself aware that Management Reporter might still be missing some capabilities that FRx has!

Good luck!

FRx How-To: Create/Edit Font Styles

Are you tired of analyzing the same formatted report year after year? Period after period? Looking to add some color? Shading? Or changing the font to your favorite font style?

FRx makes it easy for you to do this and below is a video on how to do this step-by-step. Open up FRx Report Designer (Start Menu>All Programs>FRx 6.7>Report Designer). It doesn’t matter which company you’re logged in to.  I tried to make this as simple as possible, therefore, keep in mind that this isn’t the only way make these changes.

Things to remember: 

  •  In the video, I chose the first Row Format from the window simply because it doesn’t matter which Row Format or Column format I use.  Adding a new Font Style will allow me to use it throughout FRx.
  • When you create a new font style and you try to use it on a machine that doesn’t have the font installed locally, the font will not appear.  You can either choose a common font that is provided with Microsoft Office, or you will have to install the font locally on each machine that uses FRx.

Hope this helps!
