Output File NameThe name you would like to save the NAHA Report as (this will default to NAHAReport).
Report Program FilterSelect the Program(s) that you want to report on from the Report Program Filter box from the multi select box. If you do not select any Programs in the Report Program Filter box, Chintaro will assume you want to report on all Programs listed.

Occupancy Calculation Warning

The NAHA/Data Collection Report will only run if you have completed the Occupancy Calculation for the entire financial year. 

If you have not run the Occupancy Calculation for the entire financial year, you will see a warning on the right hand side of the screen:

You will also see the periods that you have run the report for in the box below this message. You will need to exit this screen and run the Occupancy Calculation for the periods you have not yet run the calculation for. Click here to view the solution for the Occupancy Calculation. 

Once you have run the Occupancy Calculation for the entire financial year, the Occupancy Calculation warning will disappear. 

Exporting the NAHA Data Collection Report 

There are 2 options on the screen for when you are ready to run the report. 

1.) The first option is to create files to export in CSV format. Click Create Report (Files):

If you choose the files option, 4 csv files containing the data will be saved to the location you selected in the Output Folder.

Instead of using coloured cells to show you potential discrepancies, a validator will alert you to any data that your need to check before submitting your report. For further information, check the information sent to you by the AIHW for Validata or contact 

2.) The second option is to populate the data from Chintaro into the NAHA Survey Tool template. To create the NAHA Report using the NAHA Template, click Create Report (xls):


You will see the data from Chintaro auto-populating each line in the report. To open your report, go to the output folder you selected on the left hand side and open the report.

Please note: There are known issues with the 2023 reporting template's dates showing incorrect errors. The preference for the AIHW is that you create the report in file format and run it through the Validata system before submitting. Please contact for more information.
