How do I determine the cost of the report?

How do I determine the cost of the report?

The purchase price for the generated report/resulting data set is $.02 per row (record) returned from the query based on the user-selected criteria, with a minimum charge of $10.00 per report. Reports greater than $10.00 must be calculated in even dollar amounts, so if your report contains an uneven number of records, the price will simply be rounded down a penny.

From the Search Criteria for Report Generator page, select the desired criteria by which to pull the data. Click the Continue button. The report query then runs and refreshes the page. Now displayed are the report fields available along with the input or selected criteria. Below the criteria, a Report Summary table displays with the number of records (rows) generated from the criteria, the cost per row, and the total cost for this report.

How do I find information about output format?

How do I find information about output format?

The comma-separated values (CSV) file format is a set of file formats used to store tabular data in which numbers and text are stored in plain textual form that can be read in a text editor. Lines in the text file represent rows of a table, and commas in a line separate what are fields in the table's row.

CSV is a simple file format that is widely supported, so it is often used to move tabular data between different computer programs that support compatible CSV formats. For example: a CSV file might be used to transfer information from a database program to a spreadsheet.
