You may want to trigger automatic reports (or exports) as data is collected, but you may have different requirements for different parts. For example, you may need a Stat Summary report for some parts but a Raw Data report for others. These directions will walk you through changing the necessary settings to accomplish this.

Default Auto Reporting Settings

  1. Start QC-CALC Real-Time.
  2. Make sure the Report - Use Same Report Settings for All Parts menu is CHECKED (we will uncheck this again later).
  3. Choose the Report - Setup Automatic Reporting menu and the Automatic Report Setup screen appears.
  4. Change the settings to those required for the majority of your QCC files. For example, if 90% of your parts require a Stat Summary report, set that up here. The Automatic settings will need to be edited less if the defaults that are used cover most of your files.
  5. Use the Advanced button to change any Print to - File or Email settings.
  6. Click the OK button once the settings are changed.
  7. UNCHECK the Report - Use Same Report Settings for All Parts menu.
  8. Now when data is collected the reporting settings that are used will start out as the settings you just changed.
  9. If you have some QCC files that need different settings you should use the Report - Setup Automatic Reporting menu when that particular QCC file is open to make changes to settings that ONLY apply to that file.

More Information

These same directions can be used for the Automatic Exporting. All Report menu items used have the same item shown in the Export menu.
