### REPORT Instruction - example 10.3 from Verbeek(2008)

Hi Tom,

I am attempting to save the results from example 10.3 from Verbeek(2008) as a html file.

If I run as is, and include
Code: Select all
`report(action=show,window="window")`

and save the report as a html file via clicking on the disk icon in the report window, I get the results formatted as shown in the example!

However, I want to redirect the report output to another unit:
Code: Select all
`open(format=html) output "/users/myname/Downloads/outfile.html"... example ...report(action=show,window="window",unit=output,format=html)close outfile.html`

But the outfile.html in both in Chrome & Safari is as follows:

Don't use OUTPUT as the unit name. OUTPUT is the name of the text output unit.
