How do I refine a report ?
You can refine a RHInterchange report to focus on specific data. Options for refining a report are listed in the Refine Report area, a sample of which is shown in the figure below.
You can refine a report in four ways:
- By funding source
- By date
- By geographic area
- By contraceptive method
Refining by Funding Source
By default, initial reports are generated for all funding sources for which data is available. You can limit the number of funding sources for your search. Use the Select All checkbox (circled below) to select or deselect all funding sources.
To select or deselect one or more funding source(s), hold down the "Ctrl" key on the keyboard while clicking on the funding sources you wish to select or deselect. The sample figure shows that only the funding sources UNFPA and USAID will be included in the report.
Click View Data.
The report will be regenerated with only the selected funding sources included.
Refining by Date
The Date section of the Refine Report area, shown in the sample figure below, lets you define a date range for the report.
Each field in the Date section has an associated drop-down list showing available options. Beginning with the Start Date options, click on the arrow next to each field and select the corresponding value. Repeat the process for the End Date, which will define the end of the date range.
Note that the Value Summary and Quantity Summary reports only show data in 12-month periods, so the end month will self-calculate based on the selected Start Date, as shown in the figure below.
Refining by Geographic Area
The Select Geographic Area section of the Refine Report area, shown in the figure below, allows you to generate a report for a specific geographical location or locations, depending on the report. From the drop-down list, select the region or country for which you would like to generate a report.
The Summary of Shipments, Value Summary and Quantity Summary reports allow you to generate a global report, or a report for one region or country at a time.
The Geographic Summary report allows you to see information for one or more geographic locations.
The Shipment History report allows you to see shipment details for only one country at a time (no global or regional reports).
Refining by Contraceptive Method
You can refine reports according to contraceptive method by using the Methods section of the Refine Report area. By default, initial reports are generated for all available contraceptive methods.
You can define the contraceptive methods in your search by using the Select All checkbox (circled below) to select or deselect all methods.
To select or deselect one or more method(s), hold down the "Ctrl" key on the keyboard while clicking on the methods you wish to select or deselect. The sample figure shows that male and female condoms will be the only contraceptive methods included in the report.
