Use Multiple Versions of a Custom QRP Report

Did you know you can use multiple versions of a custom QRP report?

All Infor ERP VISUAL reports and forms are based on a technology that allows the format of a report to be separated from its contents by storing each repot layout in separate report template. These template files are editable using the Gupta Report Writer tool.

The report format overrides allow customizations of forms on a system-wide and user-specific basis. Three possible override contents are available to select from- Entity, User and Always. If you select the User option, a User ID field appears where you can enter a User ID.

For example, if you need to make additional modifications to an existing custom report that is already defined in the reports overrides, you:

  1. Copy and rename the target QRP file
  2. Add an additional line for the same report using either your User ID or the User ID of the person that needs to view the QRP report that is in the works. You can now view & test the report in the VISUAL environment without disrupting other users of the original report.
  3. When the custom QRP file is ready to go live, just change the names of the QRP files appropriately and delete the line from the Report File Override dialog box.
