Additional questions, notes, and tips:
1: Where do I find built-in data fields that are available to a report?
Reports typically contain multiple stored procedures that list data fields (expand Data Sources, WaspDB2012 [MS SQL] at the left). For built-in fields, avoid the ones with "CustomFields" in the name, which are only used when referring to user-created fields (in Form Customization). Built-in fields are contained in another SP that is specific to a particular report.
For example, the Historical Check Out By Customer Report contains multiple SPs:
Three of these contain "CustomFields" and SpLabels4CR is not expandable. The remaining SP, SpHistoricalCheckOutTransaction, is the one that contains the built-in fields used by this report (or unused but available).
2: Where are the custom fields stored?
This depends on what kind of field it is. Page 6 lists the relevant Data Sources for different field types (in the form Sp + field type + ViewsWithCustomFields):
3: Where are my custom fields in the data source?
If you can't see your fields, you need to execute the data source (page 6, step 3 in the PDF above) so the list is updated.
4: Not all fields are available on all reports.
If you can't find one, we can verify whether it's available. If it's not, we will evaluate that field's usefulness as a possible feature enhancement.
5: For text objects on a report, when they can be multiple and/or variable number of lines, it's best to set these boxes in the Behavior property in the following way:
Can Grow: checked
Can Shrink: checked
Grow to Height: not checked
6. Changing the barcode symbology (type) in Cloud report designer:
- Start the report designer on the report or label you want to edit, e.g. Asset Tag or Item Number Label.
- Click to select the barcode.
- At the lower left, make sure Properties is clicked.
- In the left Properties pane, set the Bar Code Type to your desired type. The default is Code 128 Auto which is a commonly used 1D type. Common 2D types would be DataMatrix or QR Code.
- Don't forget to File, Save when you're done editing.
