Report Criteria
You can use the following report criteria for your search.
  • Report ID

    The administrator can restrict the use of a leading asterisk in the filter mask. For example,
    *REPORT
    cannot be permitted. The administrator can also set up a rule to change your search so that your search term is padded with certain characters, and you do not have to type all the characters. For example, in an account field the administrator can choose to pad all numbers with zeros, so that the account number is eight digits. In this example, if you type 234, 234 could automatically be converted to 00000234 or 23400000 depending on admin settings.
