Your report will open with Adobe Acrobat Reader, and you will be able to print and/or view it. To print, go up to "File" ---> "Print" at the top of your screen, or click on the Print icon. If you have trouble getting your report to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader, call the Help Desk at x4400. (You may need to download Adobe Acrobat Reader.)


View Other Banner-Users' Reports


If your job requires you to view Banner reports that others have created, here's how to access another users' reports:

  1. Click on the “View Other Reports” link at the top of your list of reports.


  2. Enter the Banner username of the person who ran the report you wish to view, and the Banner report name you wish to view.


  3. Press Submit.


Please note that you will not be able to access reports created by others if you do not have permission to view that report. For example, if you do not have the additional permissions required to run and view Banner HR reports, you also cannot view HR reports created by others.
