After selecting a report under Charts, Data, or Custom Reports, go to the Options section to the right of the report area.

Time Frame is required for a report to run. Depending on which report is running, the Time Frame involves the PO Confirmation Date or the date that a Receipt or Voucher is created. There is a "Custom Date Range" selection available if you want to define a unique Start Date and End Date.

You can complete the remaining options as needed and click the Apply button.
