Exporting IDEA StatiCa reports to various output files enables the user to work further with these reports or share them in a generally acceptable format in further project steps.

Creating report

To create a report, start in the Report tab. 

You can select the level of reporting: Brief gives the overall results only, One page puts the most necessary results on a single page, and Detailed is the most descriptive option. BOM (Bill of materials) presents the 2D drawings of plates in the connection.

The report can be adjusted based on your preferences - use the Report settings (top right) and Project items settings (bottom right corner) menus. 

You can also select if you want the report to include the current project item only, the selected items or all of them. 

After each change, the report must be re-generated using the button in the top ribbon.
