Question: If I print the same reports every day, is there a way I can avoid keying in the criteria each time for every report?
Answer: Yes, you can create a folder in the Reports component named Daily Reports.
You can then go to each report that you print on a daily basis and in the date fields, key in the word "today", click the 'Save As' button on the toolbar and name the report (i.e. -Daily Balance Today).
Click and drag each of the Reports you saved into the Daily Reports folder you created, select 'Move Here' when you drop the report into the folder. You will then have a Daily Reports folder that contains a copy of each report with "Today" saved in the date range.
To print all of the reports, simply highlight that Daily Reports folder and hit 'Print.' All reports will print for you
