Deltek Cobra Training – Report Developer
Duration: 1 Day
Prerequisites: A basic understating of Deltek Cobra and Microsoft Excel is recommended.
With Deltek’s release of Cobra comes a powerful new capability; you can customize any of the standard reports. This is achieved by modifying the existing Microsoft Excel based templates, allowing you to change formatting, add data columns, and modify formulae, among other things. For example, have you ever wanted to add SPI and CPI data columns to a standard CPR, place your company logo in the header, add a status column to your work packages or brighten up the color scheme? These are just a few of the myriad customizing skills this course offers to those interested in enhancing the impact and aesthetics of their Deltek Cobra management reporting package.

You will leave the class with a deep understanding of the reporting system, and, in addition, an invaluable manual that includes examples, syntax explanations and tag reference materials to use in all your future customization endeavors.
