into databases and create the required indexes to provide easy navigation for
directly accessing the required component of any report.
Online Report Builder will strip unwanted data or transmission characters, it
will accept any incoming record length and will write the data forward with a
predetermined record length.
Incoming reports can be bundled together or processed separately. The Online
Report Builder will separate all reports as defined in the parameter set-up and
will dynamically prepare the data to appear on user defined menu's for later
viewing and retrieval.

Indexes are defined uniquely for
each report and can consist of a single key field or can be constructed based
on a variation of multiple key components.
