The reports editor (smoReportDesigner)


smoReportDesigner is a report generator used to define reports (e.g. work orders, lists, etc.) to be printed in EasyVista using forms and views.

Each report is made up of a set of objects such as tables, names, EasyVista data from the main table associated with the report and linked tables. These objects are formatted using graphic elements (borders, lines, etc.) to improve readability and are placed in sections:

  • Report title, defined in the ReportTitle section.
  • Data from the main table of the report or from tables linked to the main table, displayed using the MasterData and DetailData data sections.
  • Title and column headers in tables displaying records from the DetailData section defined using the GroupHeader section.
  • Information in the report page footer defined using the Footer section.

Description of the reports editor

The editor is divided into several zones:

  • The Workspace (1) where different objects used by the report are placed
  • The Data Tree (2) used to select fields, variables and functions
  • The report tree structure (3) that displays the list of objects by section. When the report contains several pages or sub-reports, these are available in tabs.
  • The Properties Window (4) that varies depending on the selected object
  • The menu bar (5)
  • The toolbar (6) 
  • The objects toolbar (7)

2. Define the sections of the report.

  • Click Object Sections.png and select the type of section you want.
  • Add the required fields in the MasterData and DetailData data sections by clicking and dragging them from the Data Tree. Note: To insert fields from a view, click [ CONNECT VIEW ] at the bottom of the Data Tree.
  • To replace one of the fields in a section with another field:
    • You can click and drag the new field from the Data Tree.
    • You can also select the field in the workspace and open the drop-down list. All available fields from the table associated with the section will be displayed.
               Object - select new field.png
  • Add the names of the columns to the data sections:
    • Click Object Sections.png and select the ColumnHeader section.
    • Place the section above the associated data section. 
    • Click Object Label.png. Place the object in the section and enter the name using the Memo editor.

3. For each object placed in the workspace:

  • To edit the properties of a field, right-click to display the contextual menu or use the Properties Window.
  • To increase or reduce the size of an object, click the object's move handle Grip object.png and resize it.
             Selected object.png
  • If the title is hidden by the resized object, select Send to back from the contextual menu of the resized object to send it to the background and display the title.

2. Import the report to the production database.

  • Log in to the EasyVista production database.
  • Select Administration > Import/Export > Import.
  • Select the file corresponding to the exported report and click [ UPLOAD ].

How to define a multilingual report

  • You select the reference language of the report when you create the report. This is displayed in the Text toolbar.
             Toolbar Text.png
  • You should adapt the report by translating the report title, column names and translatable fields with the _<LANG> suffix into the languages used in EasyVista.

      Example documentation icon EN.png  
AM_COST_CENTER.COST_CENTER_EN field: English name of the cost center
AM_COST_CENTER.COST_CENTER_FR field: French name of the cost center

  • The language suffixes are as follows: EN (English), FR (French), IT (Italian), SP (Spanish), GE (German), PO (Dutch).
     

Follow the procedure below for all languages used in EasyVista.

1. Select the new language of the report from the drop-down list in the Text toolbar.

2. Select File > Report Name in the menu and enter the report title in the new language.
         Box Report name.png

3. In the workspace, right-click each translatable object and select Edit from the contextual menu. In the Memo editor, enter the name in the new language and modify the _<LANG> suffix.

4. Repeat the same procedure for the fields in the GroupHeader sections. Right-click the section and select Edit from the contextual menu. Select the field associated with the new language from the drop-down list in Data Field.
