Assembly Reports - Stock Control

Three Assembly reports are available for configuration, each split into two configuration options for the assembly header details and the component stock detail.

The Print Assy.(or Assembly) report is used for the option ‘Print/Value Assembly’ report, the Build Assy. report is used for the ‘Build’ report produced when building stock assemblies and the Comp Check report is used for the ‘Component Stock Check’ report.

Each report allows setting of the following options:

Print Control

Up to eight report styles can be defined within Datafile through the CONFIG user options, these control the length and width of the page to be printed. You must select (within the HDR definition) the style the report is to be printed in. Available styles are listed as a help bubble when inputting the print control.

Data Items

This allows you to select the items to be printed on the report. In addition to printing items from the Assembly and Component files themselves options exist for special items that print information relating to either the Stock Code or Values of the assembly being built. These are listed below.

Sorting Sequence

Only applicable for the Print/Value Assemblies Report – this report normally prints in Assembly Number order. You may specify a different printing sequence for a report here by specifying the data items in the assembly file that you wish to sort on. You also have the option as to whether the sort sequence is processed in ascending or descending order.

Sub Assembly Indent

Here you can specify the number of characters the stock code is to be indented when printed for sub-assembly components. This affects the print size of the stock code data item – usually this is the data item size but if you set an indent then this increases by the number of characters indented multiplied by the maximum number of assembly levels.

Blank before Component

Specify whether a blank line is to be left after the print of the sub-assembly item and before the print of its components. When set a blank line is also printed before the continuation of the main assembly items.

Blank on Sub Assembly

Not applicable if leaving a blank line before the component. Instead this option leaves a blank line before the print of the sub-assembly detail.

The OPTIONS Button

The OPTIONS button allows you to configure the page size, font and margins of the printed report and operates as discussed in Stock Reports above.
