Target audience

The course is aimed at day to day users of SIMS, those responsible for adding and maintaining data in the database, those responsible for responding to requests for information from the database in various forms.


By the end of the course you will have a wider understanding of how reports are produced in SIMS and in particular be able to:

  • Use and design different templates to organise the layout of the reports
  • Use Excel macros to further modify the output of the report
  • Make more extensive use of the features of RTF as an output for reports
  • Extract data from across different modules in SIMS

Knowledge required

Delegates must have attended the Standard Reporting for SIMS Users course (or its for-runners Basic and Intermediate Reporting) and have familiarised themselves with the techniques covered on that course. There will be a revision exercise at the start of this course.
