Q - Is there a way to enter responses to reports that will run deferred so that the responses change from run to run?
Example: As per the attached screenshot to print an invoice summary, the goal is to have the report run automatically overnight (deferred) and just list the invoice generated that day.
A - There are certain reports in which we allow users to use the “F1” key on the Starting Date field to indicate “System Date.” We provide the F1 key specifically for deferred processing purposes.
Invoice History Summary does not have this F1 feature for the system date option. You can consider posting the idea on our support.elliott.com portal to see if other users support your idea.
The other alternative to Daily Invoice History Summary is that you can enable an Invoice Log in Global Setup -> Cop-Func -> Invoice Printing.
18. Append Printed Invoices to CSV Log File? Set this flag to “Y”
19. Log File Path & Filename (Support YYMMDD Mask) Setup this value like M:\Elliott7\InvLog\INVYYMMDD.CSV”
If you do so, then each day you will see an invoice log file like INV170926.CSV created under the M:\Elliott7\InvLog folder.
The CSV file will have most of the import fields of the invoice header. You can try this out if it helps.
