All the reports created are stored in the archive. The reports can be compared and can show the content that has changed between previous reporting runs.
All runs as well as the time when the data marts were created are displayed in the report history. There is a distinction between system date and logical processing date (posting date). In addition, the control variables of the report are shown.
All the file formats for the reports (HTML, PDF and Excel) are archived and can be retrieved at any time. In addition, it is possible to create special comparative reports that can be used to compare data from any number of runs.
With regards to the comparison above, the oldest run is displayed in comparison with the latest run. Differences are displayed in columns and highlighted in colour. Starting from the difference, it is possible to display individual records contained in the archive.
