Report types and their options

HTML (default)

A html file is created. The format may be modified by combining this option with other options. It can be opened by any webbrowser.

Additional options for HTML reports

All following switches may be simultaneously used in order to add differ-­ent types of additional content.

NOICONS

Create a report without any images

NOCORRECTIONS

Do not log corrections

NODETAILS

Suppress details for the occurences

OPENRESULT

All entries in the report are opened in Initial view (closed by default if JavaScript is enabled)

Set the path for referenced objects

--linkpath 

HTML reports are generated without exporting referenced objects. This option requires a path (URL) to a folder where the referenced objects reside (Default: folder "\etc\reporttemplate" in pdfaPilot CLI directory)

Example:

--linkpath="file:\\\Programme\pdfaPilot\etc\reporttemplate" 

Customize your report

If you create a HTML report, you can completely customize it by adapting the CSS-File to your needs. You can even exchange the pictures.

You can find all material used for the HTML reports within the folder "\etc\reporttemplate" in your pdfaPilot CLI directory.

XML

XML file which is intended to be processed with software (parsers). The scheme of the XML report structure can be found within the xsd-file stored in "\var\XMLV2 report schema\".

MHT

A mht file is created. MHT is a data format created by Microsoft which offers the possibility to include all resources (like style sheets, images and JavaScripts) to be included in one file. This file type can only be read by Internet Explorer.
