gmStudio can produce a variety of useful reports to help you plan, execute, and measure the progress of your migration effort. There are four classes of reports:
Most reports are driven off selected tasks in the Migration Project. You indicate which migration tasks to include in a report by selecting them in the migration panel.
Most reports are authored as tab-delimited text files with the first record containing the column names of the report. These reports are written to files with a .tab extension. A handful of reports aggregate various log files and other data as free-form text files or html. These reports are written to files with a .txt or .htm extension respectively.
Most reports are written to the report folder in your migration workspace. When the report file is ready, gmStudio will open the file with the associated application.
