I accidentally deleted Project Report xmls - Need back

435 Views, 3 Replies

I accidentally deleted some of the project report templates and need them back so I can use them to start custom reports for their respective classes. For instance, I was in the project setup and went to reports and accidentally deleted the instrument list report template. Now I don't know how to create a custom report for instrumentation for use in the data manager.

 

I tried copying xmls from the default project over to my "ReportTemplates" folder for my specific project, but my project setup still doesn't bring them in.

 

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Craig

There's an entry in the database.

 

Usually what i does is make a new report in Project Setup (doesn't matter what template you use), then replace the generated xml with the one you have.

I tried this some weeks ago.

If you have no templates left, you can't create a report from scratch.....

 

Also, have you ever noticed, that you can't create a report for EngineeringItems?

Modifying an existing report template.xml can do the trick, but seriously.....

Oh and you need to put an additional entry in the ISO_PnIdPart.xml to make your new report work!
