Financial reports are generated for a specified reporting period. You can select a first, last, or arbitrary date for the reporting period, depending on the length, or date interval, of the reporting period. When you generate the report, the start and end dates for the reporting period are calculated using the selected date interval. The origin date used is the base date on which the report was generated.

When the report is run, cell values are calculated for the selected period, and the report is generated in Microsoft Office Word or Microsoft Office Excel format, depending on which template is selected.
