Suzette,

I would have a chapter about Creating Reports.

Creating Reports

To create a report:

List the major steps.

1.
2.
3.

Expand a step into another topic if needed. For example: 5. Add fields.
Your next topic could be Adding fields to your report definition.

You can have a section on field values.

I would try to stick to the "User Task perspective".

what

sold

redeemed

time

within
