The first time you save an AdHoc report on your computer, you will need to specify where to save the file using the following instructions: Save Horizon AdHoc Reports .

If you are unable to find a desired report in Web Reporter or in the Horizon AdHoc module, contact Sandie at 1-800-567-9024 or at helpdesk@prl.ab.ca
