Report Generator

Introduction

The Report Generator is a software module that can automatically generate a test report from tests carried out by RadiMation®. This function can save a test engineer a lot of time, since the Report Generator only needs a few minutes to generate a complete test report. These test reports can be written in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or Text format.

The basic information needed to create to generate a test report, as well as the more specific features of the Report Generator, are explained in the following paragraphs.

About the Report Generator

Template files and Report files

The Report Generator uses two files to generate a report; the Template file and the Report file.

The Report file is the 'output' of the Report Generator and the actual test report. It is containing all the desired data from the tests performed in the form of text, graphs, tables, etc. . Depending on the Template file, this report will be written in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or Text format.

The Template file is the 'input' of the Report Generator. It contains the data for the Report file in the form of specific keywords. The Report Generator then replaces these keywords with test data to produce the actual test report (i.e. the Report file). Depending on the wishes of the test engineer, this file can be written in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or Text format.

The Template file is not altered or destroyed when a Report file is generated. As such it can be 're-used' (as an example) for other test reports if the situation allows for it. (Great care should be taken to make sure that the content of the 're-used' Template file is suitable for the desired test report.)

Since the Template file is the foundation for the test report we recommend that you safeguard its content. Make the Template file read-only so it cannot be (accidentally) deleted or modified.

The Template file and report file may not be the same file!

Since version 5.2 RadiMation® offers the option to create 'test-specific' templates instead of one 'generic' template. The biggest advantage of this option is that it simplifies the process of setting up and generating a test report. For more information, please read the paragraph 'Test-specific templates' (under 'Special features') further down.

Keywords

In the Template file, the test data is represented by specific keywords that tell the Report Generator which data to insert at the position of the code. These are divided into Main Keywords and Secondary Keywords.

In the (generic) Template file these keywords are coded as followed: ||Main keyword | second keyword||

The Main Keyword indicates the part of RadiMation® from which the data must be retrieved, such as; EUT, Configuration, Radiated Immunity, etc. (A list of Main Keywords and their complementing Secondary Keywords is visible further in this chapter.)

The Second Keyword indicates the data that must be retrieved, such as; filename, test start time, frequency, etc. (A list of Main Keywords and their complementing Secondary Keywords is visible further in this chapter.)

Every Main Keyword has a set of (Secondary) Keywords that can only be used in combination with that specific Main Keyword. In many cases tests share the same Keywords even though they refer to different data. (This is not a problem because the combination of the Main and Secondary Keywords will always result in a unique code.)

An overview of these keywords is visible further in this chapter.


Keep in mind that:

  • The Keywords must be spelled correctly, including spaces and other symbols.
  • To separate multiple words, only one space is used.
  • Keywords are not case sensitive.
  • Keywords that are not recognized cannot be replaced with data.
  • Unrecognized Keywords will appear in the Report file 'unchanged' (as codes).
  • In a 'test-specific' template the Main Keywords are not used, (only the Second Keywords). 'Test-specific' templates are a new feature since version 5.2. For more information on this topic, please read the paragraph 'Test-specific templates' (under 'Special features') further below.


Unrecognized Keywords

If a Keyword is not recognized the test engineer will be alerted to this error in the 'settings screen' of the Report Generator. This might occur when:

  • The Keyword is spelled incorrectly.
  • The data it refers to does not exist/no longer exists.
  • The data it refers to does not exist/no longer exists in the specified location.
  • The data it refers to does not exist/no longer exists under the specified name.

Errors are easily located by searching the test report (i.e. Report file) for the characters "||". Once found these can be deleted, or changed into a correct code. If the Report Generator is executed once again, (using the modified file as the template), the Report Generator should generate the report without errors (not replaced keywords).

Generating a report

Generating a report is a three step process. First you (make and) select a Template file to use as the foundation for your report. Then you set-up the desired Report Generator settings. Lastly you generate (and check) the test report (i.e. the Report file).

If the test report contains an error or is not to your liking for some reason, it can be altered. Please read the following paragraphs for more information about 'generating a report'.

We also recommend that you read the 'Specific features' paragraphs, because they contain further and more detailed information about specific features and uses of the Report Generator.

Step 1. Making and selecting a Template file

A Template file is needed to generate a report. Select/alter an existing file or create a new file if necessary.

Making a template file

Template files can be made in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or Text format. As described previously, the Template file is the 'input' for the Report Generator and contains the data for the Report file in the form of specific keywords. These codes can be included in the templates in a variety of ways. Some of the possibilities are visible below:


In a Template file made in Microsoft Word:

  • Report generator codes can be included 'as is' (meaning, without context).
  • Report generator codes can be included in a table.
  • Report generator codes can be included in a header or footer.
  • Report generator codes can be included in a heading.
  • Report generator codes can be combined with other text and report generator codes in a cell of a table.
  • Report generator codes that include texts into the final report are allowed.
  • Report generator codes that include tables into the final report are allowed.
  • Report generator codes that include pictures into the final report are allowed.


In a Template file made in Microsoft Excel:

  • Report generator codes can be included 'as is' (meaning, without context) in a single cell.
  • Report generator codes can be combined with other text in a cell.
  • Multiple report generator codes (and also text) can be combined in a cell.
  • (Multiple) Report generator codes can be included in a note attached to a cell.
  • Multiple worksheets are allowed, all worksheets will be checked for report generator codes.
  • Report generator codes can be used as part of a formula of a cell. However it might be necessary to convert the contents from a text to numerical value. The simplest form of a formula is: "=VALUE("||START FREQUENCY||")".
  • Report generator codes that include texts into the final report are allowed.
  • Report generator codes that include tables into the final report are allowed.
  • Report generator codes that include pictures into the final report are allowed.


(Be advised, even though the Microsoft Excel report generator editor has been present in earlier versions of RadiMation®, most of these functionalities are only included in RadiMation® version 5.3 and newer.)

Additional information and possibilities about the use of Microsoft Word and Excel as template files is described in the paragraph 'Microsoft Word/Excel report generator editor' (under 'Special features') further below.

Selecting a template file in RadiMation

To generate a report, open the 'EUT' window and go to the 'Reports' tab. Click 'Report' to open the 'Report Generator settings' window.

Report Generator Settings Window.png


To select a Template file, click on the 'Template' path or the folder button next to it and select a file from the pop-up window.

To view the selected Template file, click the magnifying glass.

To delete the file selection, click the red cross. (The red cross does not delete the file itself.)

Step 2. Viewing and/or altering the report content

By default all the tests performed on the EUT are included in the report. To view these tests, click the 'Advanced Options' button in the 'Report Generator settings' window.

The tests that are included in the report, as well as the order in which they are displayed, is visible in the 'Included Tests' section of the 'Report Generator settings' window. Excluding tests from the report and/or changing the order of the tests can be achieved in this section as well.

Click the 'Advanced Options' button in the 'Report Generator settings' window to open this field.

To chance the order of the list, select a test from the list and change its position by using the arrows on the right side of the field.

To include/exclude tests from the list, use the buttons just below the field. Only the tests that are marked be included in the final report.

Report Generator Settings Window Advanced Options.png

Step 3. Generating the report

The report can be generated ones the template file has been selected and the content of the report has been determined.

The report will be generated when you click the 'Generate' button. If you want to print the report directly after it has been generated, check the 'Print Report' checkbox on the bottom left of the window. If you want to open the report in your screen (and possibly edit it as well), check the 'Edit Report' checkbox.

The report generation process cannot be paused or cancelled be the end user. Depending on the content, this process can take a few seconds (for a text file) up to several minutes (for an extensive report containing many tables and graphs in MS Word).

Specific Features

Available report generator codes for EUT's

The Main Keyword for EUT data is "EUT". All the data entered in the EUT Window in RadiMation® can be placed in one Report file. This data can be added as single lines of text or in tables. Tables are supported for Client data, Manufacturer data and Test site data. In addition, a table with all the information can be inserted as well.


Removing unrecognized codes 'automatically'

When working with a template system, it is not unusual for superfluous (or 'unrecognized') codes to appear in the resulting report. There are two 'automatic' ways to remove these codes from the report. The first method simply removes all the unrecognized codes, the second method is more selective and can be used to remove text as well. Both methods are described below.

Removing all 'unrecognized' codes

Normally when a keyword is neither correct nor recognized by the Report Generator, it will remain unchanged. The keyword ||RemoveIllegalCodes(TRUE)|| can automatically remove all these 'errors'. Keep in mind that using this keyword can be both an advantage and a disadvantage. If you are aware of the error(s), then this is a handy way to remove them from the test report. However, if you are not aware of them, this might lead you to miss errors that need to be addressed!

Removing selected text and codes

The ||STARTDELETEBLOCK()|| and ||ENDDELETEBLOCK()|| keywords remove any and all text and keywords in between these two tags, unless one of these keywords is replaced with data by the report generator.

For example: ||STARTDELETEBLOCK()|| Client: ||EUT|CLIENT CONTACT PERSON|| ||ENDDELETEBLOCK()||

  • If the 'Client Contact Person' data has been entered in the EUT file, the code above will be replaced (with this data) and the text (including the data) will be visible in the report.
  • If this data has not been entered in the EUT file, the code will not be replaced and the text (as well as the 'unrecognized' code) will not be visible in the report.

This can help keep your report automatically clean when certain parameters are (present in your Template file, but) not used when generating the report.

Test-specific templates

The report generator has been extended in such a way, that it is no longer necessary to create one single template that includes all the codes for all the (performed) tests. Instead, it is now possible to link a 'test-specific' template to each test and then combine these into one 'main-template'. (This is an additional method to create a template file and does NOT replace the original method. Templates made with the original method will still work correctly.)


The biggest advantage of this option is that it simplifies the process of setting up and generating a test report, because:

  • Test-specific template files contain simpler codes, are more compact and easier to 're-use'.
  • The main-template is easier to set up and more accessible because its content is divided into more manageable chunks.

With this system, each test uses a different 'test-specific' template that contains the report generator codes for that test. It is necessary to combine these specific templates in order to generate a (complete) test report. This can be done by including the 'test-specific' templates into one 'main-template' for the report generator to process.

Example of a 'main-template'

An example of a 'main-template' is visible below:

Introduction

||EUT|ALL TESTS||

Conclusion

During the report generation, the ||EUT|ALL TESTS|| code will be replaced with the codes of the ‘test-specific’ templates of all the (different) tests performed on a EUT. It is also possible generate a report based on a specific set of tests, for example ||EUT|ALL IMMUNITY TESTS||. (See the Test specific report generator inclusion codes for a complete list of all the available codes.)

RadiMationReportGeneratorSettings.JPG

Making a 'test-specifc' template

'Test-specific' templates are created in the same way as the ‘generic’ report generator templates are created. All the available report generator codes (from the 'generic' templates) can also be included in the 'test-specific' templates.

However there is one big difference, and that it is no longer necessary to specify the first-part of the report generator code with a 'Main Keyword' (as described in the previous chapter 'Keywords').

  • In 'generic' templates the Main Keyword is used to indicate the location of the data that needs to be retrieved. For example: ||TEST 1|MODULATION||, where 'TEST 1' refers to the test from which the used modulation should be included.
  • With 'test-specific' templates is it sufficient to specify ||MODULATION||, because the Report Generator already knows that the template (and the codes within) are linked to that test.

A 'test-specific' template can be linked to a test by using the 'Reporting' button of the test. Each TSF configuration window, and each test-information window have this button. By pressing the button the 'Reporting Settings' window will open. More detailed reporting settings can be modified in this configuration window. The top entry field can be used to specify the name of the 'test-specific' template that should be linked to the test.

Combining graphs in a report

The report generator has been extended in such a way that it is more flexible and powerful in its ability to include graphs in a report. Not only is it easier to specify which graphs should be included, but it is even possible to include multiple 'lines' in one single graph.

With the support for this combination of report generator codes, a very powerful solution is presented to include graphs with multiple lines in a report.

Combining multiple graph lines

The code '||SIGNAL POWER GRAPH||' will include a graph with the signal power in a report. The same code can be extended with other 'graph lines' which are semi-colon separated. All the possible graph report generator codes can be combined into one single report generator code, as long as codes are ';' separated. If a specified graph line is not measured, the graph line will not be included in the final graph. It is thus acceptable to include the code '||SIGNAL POWER GRAPH; FORWARD POWER GRAPH||', even if the forward power is not measured. The graph will still be inserted but only contain the graph line for the signal power. If one or more of the graph lines are using a different unit, additional y-axes will be displayed.

For example:

  • ||SIGNAL POWER GRAPH; FORWARD POWER GRAPH|| Will create a graph with the signal power and the forward power graph lines.
  • ||FIELD GRAPH 1; FIELD GRAPH 2; AVERAGE FIELD GRAPH|| Will create a field strength graph with the field strength of the probes 1 and 2, and the average field graph.
  • ||CURRENT GRAPH; NET POWER GRAPH|| Will create a graph with the current and the net power. This graph will have two y-axes to indicate the different units.

A special report generator code '||ALL GRAPHS||' is available, which will include a graph in the report which includes all the measured graph lines.

Single band immunity tests

The known graph report generator codes for a single band immunity test are:

  • SIGNAL POWER GRAPH
  • CURRENT GRAPH
  • VOLTAGE GRAPH
  • FORWARD POWER GRAPH
  • REFLECTED POWER GRAPH
  • NET POWER GRAPH
  • MID POWER GRAPH
  • OUT POWER GRAPH
  • IMPEDANCE GRAPH
  • ERROR GRAPH
  • CALCULATED FIELD GRAPH
  • AVERAGE FIELD GRAPH
  • CALCULATED VOLTAGE GRAPH
  • CALCULATED CURRENT GRAPH
  • AD GRAPH 1
  • AD GRAPH 2
  • AD GRAPH 3
  • AD GRAPH 4
  • AD GRAPH 5
  • AD GRAPH 6
  • AD GRAPH 7
  • AD GRAPH 8
  • FIELD GRAPH 1
  • FIELD GRAPH 2
  • FIELD GRAPH 3
  • FIELD GRAPH 4
  • FIELD GRAPH 5
  • FIELD GRAPH 6
  • FIELD GRAPH 7
  • FIELD GRAPH 8
  • POINT 16 POWER GRAPH <n> where <n> is a number between 1 and 16 inclusive.
  • POINT 16 FIELD GRAPH <n> where <n> is a number between 1 and 16 inclusive.
  • POINT 16 ERROR GRAPH <n> where <n> is a number between 1 and 16 inclusive.
  • CALIBRATED POWER GRAPH
  • GENERATED MAGNETIC FIELD GRAPH
  • MEASURED MAGNETIC FIELD GRAPH
  • EUT ATTENUATION GRAPH
  • EUT ATTENUATION STD DEV GRAPH
  • EUT DYNAMIC RANGE GRAPH
  • EUT DYNAMIC RANGE STD DEV GRAPH
  • SIGNAL POWER ATTENUATION GRAPH

These report generator codes are currently only implemented in the single band version of the immunity tests. The functionality for the multiband version is a little bit different.

Multiband immunity and Multiband emission

The list of known graph report generator codes for multiband tests is not a fixed list, because an unlimited number of graph lines can be created in a multiband test. However, the report generator code to include a graph in the report for a multiband test is the same as the label of the graph trace as it is shown in the multiband test information. As long as the labels of the graph are ';' separated, any number of graph lines can be included in the graph in the report.

For example the code ||POWER; MEASURED POWER LIMIT; Amplifier forward power; Amplifier input|| will result in the following graph:

MultibandGraphInReport.jpg

Customizable AD-Channel measurement table

The report generator is extended in such a way that it is more flexible and powerful in its ability to specify the columns that should be included in a 'frequency sorted table' that includes the values of one or more measured channels.

With the support for this extensive report generator code, a very powerful solution is presented to include tables in a report with a customizable number of columns.

Implementation in version 5.2

The code '||AD CHANNEL 1 LIST||' will generate a table with the columns:

  • Frequency
  • Measured value of AD-Channel 1


The code '||AD CHANNEL 3,2,4,1 LIST||' will generate a table with the columns:

  • Frequency
  • Measured value of AD-Channel 3
  • Measured value of AD-Channel 2
  • Measured value of AD-Channel 4
  • Measured value of AD-Channel 1

If one of the specified channels is not measured, those columns will not be included in the table.


The code '||AD CHANNEL 5,8 TABLE||' will generate a table with the columns:

  • Frequency
  • Measured value of AD-Channel 5
  • Measured value of AD-Channel 8


Please keep in mind that there is a significant difference between the '||.... LIST||' and '||.... TABLE||' codes.

  • The '||.... TABLE||' code will only include the frequencies for which the values were out of the specified range for that AD-Channel.
  • The '||.... LIST||' code will include all the frequencies.


These report generator codes are currently only implemented in the single band version of the immunity tests. This functionality is not yet included in the multiband version, because the support for AD-Channels is not yet for 100% supported in the multiband test modules.

Information.png
This functionality is available in RadiMation® version 5.2 and newer.


Implementation in version 5.3

The 'column' report generator codes are even more powerful in RadiMation version 5.3. From version 5.3.0 (and higher) it is also possible to include other 'measurement values' in the code. For example:

  • ||SIGNAL POWER, FORWARD POWER, AD CHANNEL 5 LIST||
  • ||NET POWER, AD CHANNEL 2, CALCULATED FIELD TABLE||
  • ||VOLTAGE, CALCULATED CURRENT, FORWARD POWER LIST||

All the above report generator codes will result in a table that is included in the final report, containing the columns that are included in the report generator code. The order of the columns in the table is the same as the order in which the 'measurement values' are included in the code. A frequency column is always included as a first column. Invalid 'measurement values' or channels that are not measured will not be included in the generated table.

The frequency dependent measurement values that can be used in the codes are:

  • FREQUENCY
  • SIGNAL POWER
  • FORWARD POWER
  • REFLECTED POWER
  • NET POWER
  • CURRENT
  • VOLTAGE
  • CALCULATED FIELD
  • CALCULATED CURRENT
  • CALCULATED VOLTAGE
  • AVERAGE FIELD
  • FIELD 1
  • FIELD 2
  • FIELD 3
  • FIELD 4
  • FIELD 5
  • FIELD 6
  • FIELD 7
  • FIELD 8
  • AD CHANNEL 1
  • AD CHANNEL 2
  • AD CHANNEL 3
  • AD CHANNEL 4
  • AD CHANNEL 5
  • AD CHANNEL 6
  • AD CHANNEL 7
  • AD CHANNEL 8


All the 'measurement values' mentioned above are dependent on the frequency that is used for that row of the table. It is also possible to include frequency independent data as part of the table. If one or more of these frequency independent codes are included in the report generator code, an additional column will be added to the table, where the value is repeated on each row. This feature can for example be used in combination with the Microsoft Excel report generator, where each row contains all the needed information.

The frequency independent measurement values that can be used in the codes are:

  • CALIBRATION FILE
  • TEST ENGINEER
  • TEST DATE
  • TEST TIME
  • START TIME
  • STOP TIME
  • TEMPERATURE
  • HUMIDITY
  • PRESSURE
  • START FREQUENCY
  • STOP FREQUENCY
  • STEP FREQUENCY
  • LOGARITHMIC STEP
  • LOGARITHMIC STEP FROM
  • POLARIZATION
  • DISTANCE
  • TOLERANCE
  • DWELL TIME
  • MODULATION
  • MODULATION DEPTH
  • MODULATION CONSERVATION
  • MODULATION FREQUENCY
  • MODULATION SIGNAL
  • MODULATION DUTY CYCLE
  • MAINS VOLTAGE
  • FREQUENCY CHANGE MODE
  • AVERAGE FIELD
  • CURRENT MEASURED
  • CALIBRATION METHOD
  • FORWARD POWER MEASURED
  • REFLECTED POWER MEASURED
  • NET POWER MEASURED
  • CALCULATED FIELD MEASURED
  • RECALCULATE AVERAGE
  • DESCRIPTION
  • TSF FILENAME
  • AMPLIFIER PROTECTION MODE
  • AUTODISAPPEAR
  • USE VOLTAGE TEST LEVEL
  • VOLTAGE TEST LEVEL
  • POWER TEST LEVEL
  • FIELD TEST LEVEL
  • USE CURRENT TEST LEVEL
  • CURRENT TEST LEVEL
  • STEP DOWN
  • USE CURRENT LIMIT
  • CURRENT LIMIT
  • MODULATION TYPE
  • MAGNETIC FIELD TEST LEVEL


These report generator codes are currently only implemented in the single band version of the immunity tests. This functionality has not been included in the multiband version yet, because the support for AD-Channels is not supported in the multiband test modules.

This functionality is available in RadiMation® version 5.3 and newer.

Microsoft Word report generator editor

Inclusion of other files

When the "||InsertFile(<OTHER WORD DOCUMENT FILENAME>)||" code is used, the contents from the other specified Microsoft Word document will be included in the generated report. The complete contents of the other document will be inserted at the location of the report generator code.

The filename of a Bitmap or JPEG file can also be specified as part of the "||InsertFile(<PICTURE FILENAME>)||" report generator code. The corresponding picture will then be loaded from the specified disk location and will be included at the location of the report generator code. This function is similar to the 'Insert Picture, From File' action of Microsoft Word.

Inclusion of EUT attachments

Pictures, Microsoft Word documents and other files can also be attached to the EUT document, on the Attachments tab. These attachments can also be included in the generated report using the code "||EUT|ATTACHMENT <FILENAME> CONTENTS||". The '<FILENAME>' part should be the name of the attachment. It is also possible to use the code "||EUT|ATTACHMENT 1 CONTENTS||", where the "1" is the number of the attachment, but can be any number. The complete contents of the attachment will be inserted at the location of the report generator code.

Attachments.png

Macros

With the report generator code "||RunMacro(<MACRO NAME>)||" it is possible to start a predefined macro function. The '<MACRO NAME>' may be:

  • A macro defined by Microsoft Word
  • The name of a public function in a public macro module
  • A macro name predefined by the Microsoft Word report generator editor. These macro's are:
    • AutoFitThisTable: Will perform an 'Auto-Fit' on the table in which the "||RunMacro(AutoFitThisTable)||" is present.

It is not possible to call macro functions that require an argument, so only 'argument-less' macro functions can be called.

Table Formatting

The report generator will also use the formatting and settings, that are present in the template document. This does allow to define how inserted tables are formatted in the final report. To make this possible, the table code should be placed in a table in the template. In Microsoft Word, you then can set the border styles of the outer table.

Specific graph sizes

It is also possible to specify the size of the graph in the report generator template. This can be done by including a table in the report generator template, where the report generator code for the graph is placed in a cell of that table. By disabling the auto resizing of the table cell, the final report will contain the graph with the specified size. In the screenshot below, you will find how to disable auto resizing of the table.

Microsoft Excel report generator editor

Table-inclusion modes

The report generator has several modes to include a table into the final report if the Microsoft Excel report generator editor is used. These are the:

  • Row insert mode
  • Cell insert mode
  • Overwrite mode
  • Sheet insert mode

Each mode works differently and has its own advantages. Please read the descriptions of these modes to decide which mode suits your intentions.

Row insert mode

The 'row insert mode' is the default mode used by the report generator.

For example:

  • An Excel-sheet contains a report generator code for a table with 10 rows and 5 columns.
  • When the code is detected, 9 rows are inserted below the cell containing the code. (Together creating a '10 row area'.)
  • After the new rows have been added, the table is inserted at the cell where the code is detected, overwriting the '10 rows and 5 columns area' connected to this starting cell.

Because additional rows are inserted before the table is included, the content/codes below the starting cell are shifted down (and not overwritten).

This mode can be activated by including the following report generator code: "||RunMacro(CELL_PASTE_MODE_ROWS)||"

Cell insert mode

The 'cell insert mode' is very similar to the 'row insert mode' in that new cells are inserted before the table is included. The difference however is that the surrounding content is not just moved down, but also to the right. Meaning that, ones the table is inserted, any content that was placed next to the starting cell will now be present next to the table. This can be useful if calculations should be performed on the data that is present in the inserted table.

For example:

  • An Excel-sheet contains a report generator code for a table with 10 rows and 5 columns.
  • When the code is detected, a block of 9 rows and 4 columns is inserted to the right and below the cell containing the code. (Together creating a '10 row, 5 column area'.)
  • After the new rows and columns have been added, the table is inserted at the cell where the code is detected, overwriting the '10 rows and 5 columns area' connected to this starting cell.

Because additional rows and columns are inserted before the table is included, the content/codes below the starting cell are shifted down and to the right (and not overwritten).

This mode can be activated by including the following report generator code: "||RunMacro(CELL_PASTE_MODE_CELLS)||"

Overwrite mode

In the 'overwrite mode' a table is inserted at the cell where the code is detected, overwriting the cells that are to the right and below this starting cell.

For example:

  • An Excel-sheet contains a report generator code for a table with 10 rows and 5 columns.
  • When the code is detected, the table is inserted at the cell where the code is detected, overwriting the '10 rows and 5 columns area' connected to this starting cell.

Because of this the content of other cells (below and next to the starting cell) can be lost if the inserted table is bigger than expected.

This mode can be activated by including the following report generator code: "||RunMacro(CELL_PASTE_MODE_OVERWRITE)||"

Sheet insert mode

If, in the 'sheet insert mode', a report generator code is detected that will result in the inclusion of a table, then a new worksheet will be created after the active worksheet. The table will be inserted at the 'A1' cell of the newly created worksheet, overwriting the cells that are to the right and below the 'A1' cell.

This means that each table will be placed on a new worksheet. 'Non-table' content (such as graphs or text) that follows after the table will be placed on the same worksheet as the table.

This mode can be activated by including the following report generator code: "||RunMacro(CELL_PASTE_MODE_SHEET)||"

Inclusion of other files

When the "||InsertFile(<OTHER EXCEL WORKBOOK>)||" code is used, the contents from the other specified Microsoft Excel workbook or worksheet will be included in the generated report. The complete contents of the other document will be inserted at the location of the report generator code. The size of the 'to be inserted' data is determined, starting at the 'A1' cell until the last filled cell. This data is then inserted at the location of the keyword, using the selected table-inclusion mode. To prevent that unnecessary worksheets are included in the report, a check is done which prevents that empty worksheets are inserted.

The filename of a Bitmap or JPEG file can also be specified as part of the '||InsertFile(<PICTURE FILENAME>)||' report generator code. The corresponding picture will then be loaded from the specified disk location and will be included at the location of the report generator code. This function is similar to the 'Insert Picture, From File' action of Microsoft Excel.

Inclusion of EUT attachments

Pictures, Microsoft Excel documents and other files can also be attached to the EUT document, on the Attachments tab. These attachments can also be included in the generated report using the code "||EUT|ATTACHMENT <FILENAME> CONTENTS||". The '<FILENAME>' part should be the name of the attachment. It is also possible to use the code "||EUT|ATTACHMENT 1 CONTENTS||", where the "1" is the number of the attachment, but can be any number. The complete contents of the attachment will be inserted at the location of the report generator code.

Attachments.png

Macros

With the report generator code "||RunMacro(<MACRO NAME>)||" it is possible to start a predefined macro function. The '<MACRO NAME>' may be:

  • A macro defined by Microsoft Excel
  • The name of a public function in a public macro module
  • A macro name predefined by the Microsoft Excel report generator editor, which can be:
    • CELL_PASTE_MODE_CELLS
    • CELL_PASTE_MODE_SHEET
    • CELL_PASTE_MODE_OVERWRITE
    • CELL_PASTE_MODE_ROWS

It is not possible to call macro functions that require an argument, so only ‘argument-less’ macro functions can be called.

SQL queries on tables

The report generator of RadiMation supports the usage of SQL Queries on tables that are provided by the report generator. This makes it possible to include a customised table in the final report.

In combination with the 'SQL' queries, more advanced table configurations are possible, such as:

  • Changing the order of the columns in the table
  • Hiding selected columns from the table
  • Changing the sorting of the rows, based on a specific column
  • Filtering of the rows, based on the data that is included

The most simple SQL statement is:

SELECT * FROM <TABLE>

Where '<TABLE>' is an existing report generator code that includes a table in the report. This simple SQL statement can be extended with:

  • An optional 'WHERE' clause that defines an additional filter that should be used on the rows.
  • An optional 'ORDER BY' clause that specifies any specific ordering of the rows.

The names of the columns that can be used in the SQL queries are the same as they names that appear in the header row of the generated table itself. Any column name that includes a space, should be included in '[ ]' brackets.

The general keywords can't be used for selection within a table. For an example of keywords used within the table selection see the Radiated Emission Table

The report generator is passing the SQL statements and the table data itself through an internal SQLite database engine. Because the SQLite database engine is used, almost all variations of the SQL queries are supported.

Examples

Only the frequencies above 50 MHz are included:

||SELECT * FROM AD CHANNEL 4,3,2,1 LIST WHERE Frequency  > 50E6||

Only the frequencies between 1 Hz and 20 MHz are included, where the AD-channel was measured out of the specified range ('TABLE'), and the table is reverse-sorted on the frequency column.

||SELECT *  FROM AD CHANNEL 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 TABLE WHERE FREQUENCY >= 1 and FREQUENCY <= 20E6 order by Frequency desc||

Include the 'EQUIPMENT TABLE' including all the columns (also the hidden columns)

||SELECT ALL FROM EQUIPMENT TABLE||

Inserting the Peak Limit into the table (example)

This is a step by step example to learn how to configure a table. For this example we start with the code "||SELECT ALL FROM PEAKTABLE||" in a template.

This code give us all the know information in one table. (The following table has been generated with a multiband test.)


Peak Number Peak Number_RAW Frequency Frequency_RAW Peak Peak_RAW Peak Limit Peak Limit_RAW Peak Difference Peak Difference_RAW Peak Correction Peak Correction_RAW Peak Status Peak Status_RAW Status Status_RAW Angle Angle_RAW Height Height_RAW Polarization Polarization_RAW
1 1 829,92 MHz 829,92 MHz 80 dBµV 80 dBµV 60 dBµV 60 dBµV 20 dB 20 dB 0,00 dB 0,00 dB Fail Fail Fail Fail 0 Degree 0 Degree 1 m 1 m Horizontal Horizontal

Instead of the previous table, we would like to create one with the following information:

  • Peak Number
  • Frequency
  • Peak
  • Peak Limit
  • Peak difference to the limit
  • Peak status
  • Peak status overall

When you try to do this with the following code …

||SELECT Peak Number,Frequency,Peak,Peak Limit,Peak Difference,Peak Status,Status FROM PEAKTABLE||

… you find out that it does not work.

The reason for this, as stated earlier, is that any column name that include a space, should be included in '[ ]'.

When you alter the code with that in mind, you end up with the code …

||SELECT [Peak Number],Frequency,Peak,[Peak Limit],[Peak Difference],[Peak Status],Status FROM PEAKTABLE||

… which does work.

The resulting table will look like this:

Peak Number Frequency Peak Peak Limit Peak Difference Peak Status Status
1 829,92 MHz 80 dBµV 60 dBµV 20 dB Fail Fail

Limit the results

To limit the results (e.g. by ‘5’), use:

||SELECT [Peak Number],Frequency,Peak,[Peak Limit],[Peak Difference],[Peak Status],Status FROM PEAKTABLE LIMIT 5||

Sorting

To sort the results (e.g. descending by angle), use:

||SELECT [Peak Number],Frequency,Peak,[Peak Limit],[Peak Difference],[Peak Status],Status FROM PEAKTABLE ORDER BY Angle DESC||

Changing the test order

The ‘export module’ exports all the selected tests, starting from the first test at the top and ending with the last test at the bottom of the list. This order is not mandatory and can be changed. To change this order, select the test you want to move and press the ‘arrow up’ Button arrow up.png or ‘arrow down’ Button arrow down.png button to move the test up or down in the list.


Export options

There are some options that can be selected when exporting the test information:

ScreenElementDescription.png Insert header above data With ‘insert header above data’ you can insert headers above every exported column. (For example for the signal generator level, forward power and reflected power for immunity test.)
ScreenElementDescription.png Export EUT data ’Export EUT data’ allows you to select the EUT data that is to be exported. Only the EUT information stored in the top test can be exported.
ScreenElementDescription.png Include not measured columns ’Include not measured columns’ allows you to select the ‘not measured’ columns that are to be exported. If you want to run a macro after exporting, it may be easier to export all the columns. You can then use the same macro for a signal level, forward power level and net power level test. It is not possible to have RadiMation® run the macro automatically after the export. Deselecting ‘exporting not measured columns’ will result in faster exporting of the information.


Performing the export

Once the Export button is pressed, all the raw data of the selected tests will be exported to the selected Excel file.

The exported data, its format and the amount of data that is exported, depends on the selected tests. When the data has been exported, the Excel Export window will close.

Warning: Microsoft Excel needs to be installed on the PC to export the EUT information. This should be version 'Microsoft Excel 97' or newer.
