6 PS/nVision retrieves information from the NSF database and places it into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, in a form that helps you see the big picture, explore details, and make decisions. You use familiar Excel commands to format and analyse the data. With PS/nVision, you spend your time analysing results rather than summarising data and entering it into a spreadsheet. What is nVision?

9 Layouts and Scopes

10  Layout (or Instance) To specify the data you want to bring into Excel, you use a report layout. A report layout is an Excel spreadsheet used as a template to define how a report looks and the type of information that goes into the spreadsheet’s different cells. A layout does not contain data from the database. Rather, it specifies what data should be mapped directly into your report. Once a library of report layouts has been created, select an existing layout that best suits your needs. At UNSW Layouts are preset – you cannot create your own.  Scope A report scope allows you to create multiple instances of a report using a single report layout and report request. Using a scope, each report instance contains data specific to an individual field value, such as a business unit, department, account or project, or to a group of values, such as a tree node that summarises all sales departments. In this way, each report instance can share the same layout, while containing data unique to these field values. You might run three instances of an expense report that share the same layout but contain the details of one division each.
