- Supports Nor150 measurement results including voice, pictures, text notes, etc.
- Windows 8 compatibility.
Optional Add-in Tools:
The possibility to use Excel macros can be quite useful, but there are quite strict limitations in their use, as any minor change of or missing data in one particular measurement file will force the macro to crash. It cannot, therefore, be guaranteed that later versions of NorReview will run existing macros without the need for modifications. To overcome these limitations NorReview offers an alternative solution for users who have no personal experience with macros.
The add-in tools facility includes pre-designed routines for presentation and calculations to your NorReview package. These tools are made in professional software languages and offer much better operational security than macros. These optional add-in tools are designed for more advanced use of the NorReview package and to perform predefined functions in line with different international or national requirements. Extensive marker editing, event analysis, in-depth calculations on sub-sections, frequency analysis and simultaneously evaluation of multiple measurement files are possible using these add-in features. Rating calculations such as the Lden-calculation, the German TA-Lärm 1998, and the Italian DM 16/3/98, may also be added.
The previously mentioned Summary Reports is a quick and simple way of making pre-defined reports. However, many professional users have a need for detailed reports according to their user-defined templates. This is possible using the NorReport ad-in tool.
This means that each individual customer can tailor the NorReview package to perform in accordance with the local needs.
The different add-in features are described in the next sections.
