  • If the update you are taking is not a Pulse Release, your menu structure may need to be modified for you to access this report. If you are using Pulse Classic, have not done this before and require help, or you do not have access to modify your menu structure, please contact Pulse Support (02 4922 2000).
  • This is a new extract and as such needs to be set against a menu. Before you can do this the following menu function must be created.
