DBArtisan offers two basic object reporting options:
- You can generate a simple summary of all objects of a given type for a single database. For each object, the report contains similar information to that shown in the Datasource Explorer for that object type. The report opens in a built-in HTML browser. You can find data in the report, save it, or print the report.
- You can generate a detailed report of one or more objects of a given type for a single database. For each object, the report contains information similar to that available in the object editor for that object type. In addition to opening in the built-in HTML browser, the report file is written to an .htm file.
