After you've made your report selections and the PDF file is downloaded, Adobe® Reader will open (typically within the viewing area of your browser window), and the report will be displayed within that application. Using Adobe® Reader, you can print all or selected pages of a report. Depending on your organization's policy, you also may save it on your computer as a PDF file, and add your own bookmarks for future reference. (Saving a report to your desktop is not an archive function. The Banner ePrint administrator(s) in your organization will be able to archive reports on CD, which is documented separately in the Administrator help pages.)

NOTE: When the report is visible in your browser window, you will not have access to ePrint's navigation bar or other links. To return to an ePrint report selection page, click the Back button in your browser. Then you can use the navigation bar to select the next report you wish to view or print.

TIP: If you are using Microsoft® Internet Explorer and no PDF document appears within your browser, click the Refresh button on your toolbar (or select Refresh from the pull-down View menu.) To avoid these display problems, it is recommended that you run Adobe® Reader in a stand-alone capacity. For more information, see "Using Adobe® Reader in Stand-Alone Mode".

Depending on how the report was defined at implementation, it may include one or more page keys. (Page keys are described in the help pages on report selection.) The display will depend on whether or not the report includes page keys.

To view a report with no page keys:

If the report has no page keys defined, there will be no bookmarks associated with it. Adobe® Reader's navigation pane will be hidden, and the report will be displayed in full screen-width format. Use the tools provided to navigate through the document and/or print it.

To view a report that includes page keys:

Adobe® Reader will open with its navigation pane visible on the left-hand side of the window. The bookmarks shown will correspond to the page keys/values in the report. The bookmarks are arranged in a hierarchy that is based on report setup, not on search criteria.

For example, if the report is defined with two page keys, and the key "account" is subordinate to "department," then the top level of bookmarks will be the report itself, the second level departments, and the third level accounts. Changing the page key will not have an effect on the bookmark hierarchy, but only on the data that is selected for the report.

Simply click on a bookmark to scroll to that part of the report. Use the tools provided to navigate through the document and/or print it. For more tips on using bookmarks, see "Tips for Using Adobe® Reader".

NOTE: Adobe® Reader provides extensive user documentation, including a user guide in PDF form. Please refer to that document if you have questions on using the application. For information on accessing the user guide (and some tips on using Adobe® Reader with regards to ePrint), see "Tips for Using Adobe® Reader".
