Output data format

The list of output data depends on the report type. Each entry in the output data list consists of:

  • Format – here you can specify the format for the column data. You can select either a text or number format from the list (e.g., whether to display the total number of minutes as 1234,10 or 1,234.10).
  • Sorting – this specifies the sorting mode for this column:
    • Ascending – data is sorted from A to Z and from 1 to 10 so that Andrew will be at the top of the list, and Zack at the bottom.
    • Descending – data is sorted from Z to A and from 10 to 1 so that Zack will be at the top of the list, and Andrew at the bottom.
    • Do not sort – do not data sort at all.
  • Post-processing rule – modifies the actual value extracted from the database before it is shown in the report by using a post-processing rule. For instance, if a value in the database gives a total number of seconds, you can divide it by 60 to display the value to the user in minutes. (Find more details on how to create a post-processing rule in the PortaBilling Templates Guide).

Click a column name to see the available options:

  • Include this column into report result – turn this on to include the column in the report.
  • Suppress duplicate column values – turn this on to hide duplicate column values in adjacent rows.
