This Information Applies To: Agilent OpenLab CDS
Reports in OpenLab CDS can be printed or saved manually in Data Analysys, or automatically during reprocessing, or acquisition.
The user needs the following Roles and Privileges for printing reports: Data > Save reports to disk and Data Processing > Print results reports.
For detailed steps on where to set up the Roles and Privileges, see the article: How to Create or Edit Roles in OpenLab Chromatography Data System.
If you want to be able to print unsaved results, you need to check the box indicated in the Figure 1, within the Projects section of Control Panel.
Steps to Follow
There are two ways to print reports from Data Analysis:
Using the Processing Method parameters in Data Processing tab
This option is used for individual runs or method reports.
In the Home tab, click the Method layout (Figure 2).
Click Injection Report parameter, under the Reports drop-down (Figure 3).
Complete the fields as per your analytical needs. See Figure 4 for reference.
in the top ribbon, click Reprocess All (see Figure 5).
Click Save All Results.
If you do not save the results after reprocessing, you will get the following error when trying to print (Figure 6).
Click the Print All icon (Figure 7).
Confirmation: The results are now printed at the desired printer, if applicable, and the selected file types are saved at the location indicated under the Destination Folder option.
Using the Print to Printer icon in Reporting tab
Load the desired report template from the Report Template drop-down (Figure 8).
Click Preview. Steps 2 and 3 are shown in Figure 9
Click the print icon under the Report Preview window.
Tips: If you made any changes to the report, click Refresh Preview in the top ribbon to see the recent changes.
Confirmation: You will now be directed to selecting a printer; if applicable, you will be also directed to choose a destination folder for saving the results as a PDF.
There is also another way to print reports, directly from the Sequence Table during method acquisition. This option assumes that the processing method does not need further modifications and it can be used as is. However, if you need to adjust integration parameters, integration events, or do any sort of addition/modification to the processing method, you need to use the two steps outlined in this article.
