Understanding Run Control IDs

To run a report, you must tell the system when and where you want the report to run.  For most reports, you must set parameters that determine the content of the report, such as business unit or time period on which to report.

A Run Control is a database record that provides the values for these settings.  Instead of entering the same values each time you run a report; you create and save a run control with those settings.  The next time you run the report, you select the run control, and the system completes the settings.

For additional information on running reports, review the QRG Running Reports, Jobs and Queries in the For all Employees section of thectcLink Training Website.

The following steps provide an example of setting up a run control for 3C Engine. Run control processes may differ depending upon the job or process that is being run.
