Verifying a Report Run
To view information about the status of report processing, you can use log files or refer to status information that is displayed with the report in Report Manager.
The report execution logs provide comprehensive information about report execution, including the name of the report, the name of the user who ran the report, report execution time, and the delivery extension used to distribute the report. To view and analyze this data, you can copy the report execution log into database tables that are easy to query and report on.
Log files contain many entries about report execution and other server activity. Because log files contain so much data, you may want to use Report Manager if you only want to verify when the report last ran. If you require additional information, you must view the log files.
Report Manager does not show the processing times of reports that run on demand.
The following table describes how to view the processing date and time for various types of reports.
