In ESC there are several different ways to retrieve and view information. A common form of viewing information in ESC is through reports.
In most reports you have the option of adding filters. If that option is available the filter screen will have Add Filter and Remove Filter buttons at the top of the filter screen. To add a filter click Add Filter and click on desired filter. That item will then be listed as the last option in the filter column.

Export – You can export any report to Excel, PDF, XML or ASCII from the Report Preview screen by pressing the Export button in the upper left corner of the screen.
Refresh – Use the refresh button to refresh report after any changes are made to assure current data is being viewed.
Find – Use to find any “string” in a report, especially useful when searching for particular items in large reports.
Filters – You do not need to exit a report to change the filter options. Simply click on the Filters button at the top of the report and it will return you to the filter screen.
Navigation – Use to navigate through the report. Beginning of report – back one page – forward one page – end of report
Zoom & View – Use these options to view the reports in a way and size most useful to you.
You also have the ability to drill down from reports to the records contained in them. When viewing a report your cursor is a hand, when it changes to a pointing finger you can drill down to that record by clicking on the item you want to see.
