DHL. Reports-Builder Administrator Tool.

My name is Percy Dyer, and today I will code a 'Report center'. This page shows a list of all the reports DHL has requested. Eventually a procedure will run cleaning the server from files older than a month

View aggregate job report Option: It is the Suppression list general report.

Request a New Report Option. Post a new report, based on a job name and base on the client status on the suppression list table.

After a Report has been posted, a Schedule task that runs every 5 minutes from Monday to Saturday will process the report.

The user will be able to check the current status every minute.

When the report is completed you will see a ‘Completed’ status in addition to the file size

The user should click on the red link size, to download the file into Excel format.
