What is Available?

Data Table Menu

Data Tables is the raw data without analysis.  WORKnet presents these raw data in two formats: a query format that allows you to select variables to create our own report on the fly. Query results can saved to an Excel format.

The second option, which you can view on screen or download to your computer, are the pre-selected Excel formatted files. These files are accessed from the right had column of the menu page.  Below reviewmore about the data types available through the Data Tables Menu page.
