Note: User-defined report definitions do not need to follow the above naming
convention.  If you do follow the above naming convention, you may want to number 
your report definitions downward from 99 to avoid conflicts with supplied 
report definitions.  That is, if supplied report definitions use nn=01, 02, 03, ..., then you may want to use nn=99, 98, 97, and so on.
