RPT is the “instance” of AMS designated to run reports. Since it is not a “production” system, it has no data input capabilities. As such, it is a great place to run reports and view information. Since it is geared for reporting, it produces output much more quickly than AMS and has no negative effects on production users. RPT is also available more often than AMS as it does not carry production data. Its contents are copied from AMS every morning, under normal operating conditions. The procedure for setting up RPT is described below.
