Fields added to Reports

When updating ProfitFab, fields that are added to reports are not automatically added to your layouts for those reports. These fields are made available to your layouts but must be added to each report layout, if desired, from within the Report Designer.



Fields Added

Station Schedule and Operation Schedule reports Job Start date, First Operation Date, and Last Operation Date
Packing List and Packing List PrePrinted. Customer OEM Number

New Reports

New reports were added for Service Vendor On Time Shipping, Open Purchase Orders, Vendor Purchase History, and Product Usage History. After updating, these reports will be available to you, but you will not have any layouts to use. You will need to import the default layouts for these new reports before you can print them.

To import the layout for the new reports, follow this procedure:

Open the Report Designer (if not already opened)

Select File -> Import Layout

In the “Select file to import from” dialog, enter the filename as RDIMPORT.TPS, or browse through the list of files to find this file. Press Ok button to open the “Import Layouts” dialog.

From “Import Layouts” dialog:

  1. Select the “Open Purchase Orders” report in the Reports table.
  2. Select the Design name – “Open Purchase Orders” – and press the Import button to import the layout. You should see numbers flickering on the screen just below the list of reports. These represent the fields being imported. When they go away, the import is complete for that layout.

After the layout has been imported, exit the “Imports Layouts” dialog and go to the FileàOpen Layout to mark the layout as default.

Repeat this procedure for the 3 remaining reports.
