Green is what KE provides.Red is what customer has to create.
Must notify KE about any wrapper scripts you create so they can check them into the source repository for future upgrades to your version of EMu.
Catalog module Tab view of Other Counts Kind and Value used to determine duplication.
Create a System Registry entry giving a name to your wrapper script.
Create a System Registry setting for the default file extension. This report is still a Crystal Report so .rpt is used.
Create a System Registry entry telling EMu what format the final output should be in.
This is an ODBC / CSV type of report just like other Crystal Reports.
Tell EMu what to do when this report is invoked.
Again this is still just a Crystal report so you have to run the Crystal viewer with the report name parameter.
Finally you have to give this report type a name that will appear to the users in the Report Type box.
How a user selects this new type of Report. Notice this is the name you gave it in the Registry.
When selecting the fields for the report. Put the fields that will be used by the wrapper script to determine the duplication in their own group. This makes like much simpler, TRUST ME!
Also, rename the group to something meaningful. GroupX is not recommended.
Within Crystal this is how the duplicated table is linked in the main report.
By having the OtherCou_csv linked in the main report you get the necessary duplication.
This is the Group you created in EMu with name slightly truncated. In this case the name was OtherCounts.
Within Crystal this is how the report is limited to only “Duplicates Collected”Other Counts for the Catalog Record.
This is done via the Select Expert.
