There are two main types of reports in Microsoft Dynamics AX: ad hoc reports and preconfigured reports.
Ad hoc reports
Ad hoc reports are reports that you create yourself. You select the data that you want to display on the report and design the layout of the report.
For more information about ad hoc reports, see Ad hoc reports.
Preconfigured reports are reports that have been designed for you. Although you will not be able to modify the layout of these reports, you can:
Filter the data displayed on the report.
Sort the data displayed on the report.
Each Microsoft Dynamics AX module has preconfigured reports that you can generate and print.
For more information about preconfigured reports, see Preconfigured reports.
