Better Reporting

Report setting options now appear on the header of the applicable report window and with the ability to save settings, you can avoid reentering parameters each time you run a report. Plus, selection grids have been added to streamline report data filtering. In addition, SAP Crystal Reports is now used for all reports and forms which provides better output and performance.
