Exporting error reports from the Error Browser

Exporting error reports from the Error Browser

The Error Browser can export plain text error reports, suitable for reading or printing.

Exporting an error report

On the File menu, click Export All Errors In Tree or Export Only Selected Errors.

The export may take a few minutes, depending on how many errors you are exporting. If the error report will be very long, Hyperview will ask you to confirm that you want the report before it creates the report file.

Selecting errors to include in the report

When Export All Errors In Tree is used, all the errors currently displayed in the Error Browser will be included. You can use filtering to select which errors are shown.

When Export Only Selected Errors is used, only the errors that have been selected in Error Browser will be included. You can alter the selection to change which errors will be included.

  • You can select an error by clicking on it.
  • You can select an entire branch in the tree by clicking on the main entry of the branch.
  • You can select a range of errors or branches by clicking the first error or branch, then holding down Shift and clicking the last error or branch.
  • You can add or remove a single error or branch from the selection by clicking on it while holding down Ctrl.

Reading an exported error report

The error report begins with some information about your project and a summary of what errors were selected and how they are grouped and sorted.

After that is a "Summary of Contents" showing every error grouping in the report, in a similar format to the tree shown in the Error Browser.

The bulk of the report is the actual errors, grouped in the same way as in the error tree, with a header for each group. If the errors are grouped by Error Name or Error Code, then the headers will include summary information about each error type in the report.
