Description: Tools for analyzing data collected by the U.S. Forest Service's Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program are available in Microsoft Access© format. Databases have been created for every state, except Hawaii, and are available for downloading. EVALIDatorReports is a Visual Basic Application that is stored within each Microsoft Access© database containing FIA data for each state. EVALIDatorReports can generate reports for over 40 different types of estimates including forest area, number of trees, growing-stock volume, growth, removals, and mortality. The code for this Visual Basic Application can be viewed, modified, and extended. This approach provides advantages for users interested in creating customized data summaries utilizing external data and/or programs. The system does not require Internet access after the databases are downloaded to a personal computer. This paper contains one simple and three complex examples illustrating how items can be added to the list of classification variables or to the list of estimates within the EVALIDatorReports program.
