Beyond Category creates two kind of reports: 1) Single Album Reports and 2) Album Lists.
Single Album Reports
Beyond Category will create reports of individual albums containing most of the information entered in the Albums window. This includes track details and personnel.
There are two options for the report: 1) Report the collective personnel for the albums or 2) report the personnel for each track(s). On the option for personnel by track, the personnel is printed when it changes by track.
BC will print as many albums as are selected in the album list on the Albums window. The image above shows the menu selections for the reports.
