Under/Overallocation on Reports?

Hi -

I am trying to create reports
from the client (6.2) using the Reports section, so that
they can be run in the web (using My Reports portal)where
all our users have access. Basically, the requirement is
by resource then by project and showing or flagging
under/overallocation totals.

I know
in the web you can pull up a "spreadsheet" after selecting
your project (or resource) to view under/over allocation
by week. However, we have users (i.e. executives) that do
not want to "drill down" but want a report to print for
this information (more than 2 screens or mouseclicks and
they dont want anything to do with the tool, so if I could
get this on the My Reports timer to autorun daily that
would be great). Obviously it is a calculated field, but
how do I get that to show in the reports in the client? Am
I missing something in the reports wizard? Or is this
another thing I have to add to "request for future
enhancemnts"? The web spreadsheet would be perfect in a
printable report form, but again you have to "drill down"
to get to it and its one project or resource at a time.


Using the SDK, PMDB database or
copy to excel directly is out. I HAVE to have it show up
as a report in "My Reports" portals. If it can be done at
all, which I am finding is more of the norm than the
exception.

Also, is anyone else
disappointed with the web version? It seems to be all
things to everyone and yet is so restrictive and not
flexible. I have documented about 4 pages of basic
bug/functionality issues that I will be submitting to
Primavera soon.
