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. Choose the Report - Set Automatic Report Defaults menu and the Defaults - Auto Report - Report Type screen appears.
  3. 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 used cover most of your files.
  4. Use the Frequency and Report Specific Options screens to change any additional settings.
  5. Click the OK button once the settings are changed.
  6. Make sure the Report > Automatic Reporting option is enabled.

Part Specific Exceptions

Now that the settings have been setup for most of the parts you run, when one of the different parts is run you will need create the exception case for that part.

  1. With the exception case QCC file open, choose the Report - Set up Automatic Reporting menu.
  2. Uncheck the Use default Report settings option at the top of the screen and make any changes for the automatic report for that specific part only.
  3. You can change settings on the Frequency or Report Specific Options screens too.
  4. Click OK and the settings are changed for that specific part only.
  5. From this point forward the report settings you just changed will be used when that part runs.
