Creating a custom detail report in Bill Analyst

If you want to limit the details in a report or to display data beyond what a standard detail billing report delivers, then you can create a custom detail report. (To examine high-level trends, view a standard summary billing report or create a custom summary billing report.)

You can create a new custom detail report from scratch, base it on a copy of an existing report, or edit an existing report and save the changes. Use the sorting section to determine how your data will appear in your report. If a group is designated, the report will be sorted by group and then further sorted if you select options from each of the sort fields. If no group has been selected, the detail report will be sorted by the sorting options specified in that section.
