In this lesson, you will study the Report configuration object. You will learn the purpose of this object, and then you will create a report that shows the register records and the material balance in your company.
The goal of this lesson is limited to explaining the basics of report creation using a simple example. This is why we will not discuss the details of the data composition schema that is used in report generation. This aspect will be covered in Lesson 13. Reports.
The Report configuration object is intended for defining algorithms that users run to obtain the output data they need. You can define the algorithms that generate output data using visual design tools or using 1C:Enterprise script. In practice, Report objects describe various tables with output data, summaries, charts, and so on.
