    Plain File

    Table

    This creates a file with tables using comma separated format. It’s recommended to save the file extension as .csv.

    Report Files

    This creates templates for new report files. You can add five types of report files: IP/MPLSView report master, main only, main and row detail, main and column detail, and main and cell detail. The IP/MPLSView report master is similar to the Report Manager in that it allows you to view more than one report in an organized structure. Main only report files show only the main table, while the other reports show both the main table and detailed information of each row, column, or cell.
