Does this sentence violate a grammatical principle, is it stylistically
poor, or is it OK, in your opinion:

"There are two ways to control how test results are saved."

It's come up in a review and I don't have a firm opinion about it,
myself . . .

Eagerly awaiting your insights.

I'm not sure it's grammatically wrong, but it does sound colloquial, which maybe isn't appropriate for your situation.
