LDMS as a Database Front-end

LDMS is a specialized database front-end, and while users can't interact with that data direct there are several ways to extract it. Virtually any set of data that LDMS stores can be pulled into a user-friendly report, which can then be printed or exported into a format that can be utilized by another program—you just need to know how to ask LDMS for it.

One of the most important tools at your disposal for retrieving data is LDMS Reports tool. To access reports, go to Tasks > Reports, or click the button from the LDMS toolbar. Another feature, Data Retrieval, can be used for more customized reports. Data Retrieval is found in Tools > Data Retrieval.
