Carlsbad, CA - October 30, 1992 - Data Trek, Inc. has released the Report Generator, a new software module that allows users to customize reporting capabilities in their Data Trek library automation system. Report Generator Version 1.0 fully integrates with Data Trek's Manager Series software products and lets users modify over 150 reports in their Manager Series Cataloging, Circulation, Serials, and Acquisitions modules to meet their specific reporting needs.

Report Generator gives users greater control over information contained in most printed reports. Full-screen editing enables the user to remove any field currently included, reposition fields throughout the report, and add new fields anywhere in the body of the report. Full-down menus, pop-up windows and user pick lists ensure that Report Generator is easy to use. Additional features include the ability to define the total number of columns and rows; to control the size and location of a field; and to have access to an online field-sensitive help option. These and other features increase the flexibility of the Manager Series' reporting capabilities.

"Report Generator offers incredible flexibility to users wishing to customize reports in any situation," said Jeff Smith, Report Generator's Project Manager. 'We took the time to listen to our clients' requests and suggestions and then to implement them successfully in the creation of Report Generator." Since its introduction in June, Report Generator have been purchased by over 70 libraries. When asked in a follow-up survey, users told Data Trek they were "very pleased" with the expanded reporting capabilities Report Generator offers. One user exclaimed, "Report Generator is great
