EXPORT_REPORTS array

The EXPORT_REPORTS array exports various report files. Most reports are simple text files (*.txt) however, some advanced reports are output as PDF. Typically EXPORT_REPORTS is one of the last arrays in the matrix file, however they can be placed anywhere in the matrix file.
You can output multiple different report files from one EXPORT_REPORTS array.

Note
IMPORTANT: When exporting report files, RELATIVE paths are always preferred and much safer.
Fields in the EXPORT_REPORTS array
Description
CELL=NAME The name of the Job or Panel to generate reports from. Required. If the cell is empty, or defined as "active" or "current" - the active cell will be used.
UNITS=English|Metric Output reports with either English (i.e Mils) or Metric units (default: Metric)
apertures_report=LOCATION File path for the apertures report file. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
nctools_report=LOCATION File path for the NC Tools report file. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
drill_report=LOCATION File path for the Drill Usage report file. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
mill_report=LOCATION File path for the Rout and Drill Usage report file. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
dcode_report=LOCATION File path for the DCode report file. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
fabrication_report=LOCATION File path for the PCB bareboard fabrication report file. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
Important: For best results, DFMCHECKER should always be run beforehand to extract PCB minimums, and other details.
fabrication_pdf_report=LOCATION File path for the PCB bareboard fabrication report PDF file. The PDF version contains embedded images and appears more professional. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
Important: For best results, DFMCHECKER should always be run beforehand to extract PCB minimums, and other details.
smtstencil_report=LOCATION File path for the SMT Stencil report file. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
netlist_report=LOCATION File path for the Netlist report file. The path may be either Absolute or Relative.
