6910 Report Generator [2]
From this screen you can create new reports, save reports, print reports, and preview reports -- but only the first the first 1,000 lines[2] -- prevents third parties from screen scraping with the consent of the dealer. You can query items such as vehicle inventory, service history, customer information, and prospective customers.

Hold and download print reports.
6975 Report Generator/Letterwriter Security
"6975 allows you better restrict or allow reports and files that can be accessed by users in 6910."[1]
ERALink Download
Access to this screen will allow reports created in 6910 to be downloaded by the ERALink software to the host PC in one of two formats:
Comma separated format
In the comma separated format, ERALink attempts to place delimiters in the appropriate locations for all fields, but often fails; leaving the user to define placement manually, by clicking and dragging columns.
Vertical format
A proprietary vertical format can be chosen when creating or modifying a report by selecting yes when asked to enter a special format, and yes again for option five. The vertical format displays selected fields and their values, each on a new line, with a set number of new lines between records. There tends to be inconsistencies between Reynolds versions.
