The Procedure object has the possibility of displaying the output on screen or through a printer, as well as saving it to a file. These kinds of procedures are called Static reports. Reports are designed using the Procedure Layout. They can have graphic or text output, and the choice depends on the printer that's going to be used.
To implement a Report in text mode, right click on the layout, and select "Convert to text mode" option.
The implementation of the reports in text mode depends on the Text report output property.
