2)     Select whether you wish to report on ‘Employees’, Department totals’ or ‘Both employees and department totals’.

3)     Next, select the 'Aggregates' you wish to include in the report.

4)     Under the ‘Employees’ section, select which employees you wish to include in the Payroll Summary by clicking the Add/ Remove button. To save your selection, click OK. Alternatively, click on the Edit button while hovering over an employee’s name for further selection options.

5)     Under the ‘Columns’ section, select the information you would like to include in the Payroll Summary by clicking the Add/ Remove button. To clear the current settings, simply click ‘None’ at the top of the screen to begin again. To save your selection, click OK.

6)     To re-order the fields selected, simply drag each field to the position required. More ordering options can be found by clicking on the Edit button while hovering over a particular field.

7)     Once you have chosen your report parameters, simply click Run Report to view.

Please Note: The Analysis function also allows for more than one report to be opened and viewed at the same time. This can be done by continuing to select the reports desired from the menu toolbar.

If you have edited the default Payroll Summary report and wish to save the changes for future use, simply select Save on the menu toolbar:

1)     Type in a Report Name of your choice.

2)     Select whether you wish the program to automatically use the latest dates each time the report is opened or to save and use the exact dates you have specified.

4)     Should you wish to add the report to the ‘Favourites’ section for future use, simply tick the box provided.

5)     Click Save to save the report.
