Multiple selectable Word Templates for one report

  • Multiple selectable Word Templates for one report

    Posted by Jonathan Delfraisse on April 24, 2024 at 11:45 am

    We are on NAV 14. I found the article that says you can have more than one word template, but it has to be uploaded each time you want a different one. Is it possible to have the same report but specify a different word template at run time? Or feed a key to a specific power bi paged report that could be using the same data source but have multiple reports based on vendor/customer/other logic requirements?

    What you’re asking is possible depending on your version. I believe v14 has this functionality. If you navigate to “Custom Report Layouts” you will find that you can create and name multiple formats for the same report (Posted Sales Invoices for example). There are two other pages you will need to be aware of. The first is “Report Selection – xxx” where xxx is the functional area. If you open the Report Selection – Sales page, use the Usage field to identify which report to use when you perform that use. The next place to go is “Report Layout Selection”. This page allows you to select which format of any particular report to use as the default format. You can select one of the built-in formats or one of the custom formats you created. This is used as the default. You can also override this on a customer level by opening a customer card and selecting Document Layouts from the ribbon. This will allow you to assign a specific layout of the document for that individual customer. Try this out and let us know if you have further questions.

      I see. I can create multiple lines in the Custom Report Layouts. For some reason, I thought it was only one. Thank you!
