This is the help page for the Setup Report operation in MyWraps where you define a report, its columns, and any appended wraps.
Click on the Setup button in the MyWraps toolbar to initiate the creation of a new report.
If you don’t have this button on the toolbar, you need to ask your ExcelWraps administrator for a user role with the Manage MyWraps permission.
The entire report setup can be saved as a hyperlink. Many special characters are not allowed in links, or in our internal handling of links, including
# ( ) ~ ? / & + = . %
If you use any of these characters in the wrong place in the report setup, you will get a warning message and the setting cannot be saved.
On the Properties tab, you define the following:
On the Columns tab,
When you select the columns for a report, you can accept the original data type for a cell or select a different one. There are several uses for this:
In some reports, it is useful to include a link to the source wrap from its row in the report. This enables a user to “zoom” directly from a row in the report to the wrap detail just by clicking on the provided link.
To do this, you just add a column with the system-generated column WrapUrl.
When the link is requested, it appears in a separate column in the MyWraps report, visible to the right in the screenshot above.
When used with the MyWraps2 and ShowTable functions, the WrapUrl column is displayed as an “open in new tab” icon.
On the Appends tab, you can append other wraps to the report. As an example, if railway carriages are subject to five different inspections, each documented in its own wrap, you probably want to create a full report that shows the merged result of all five inspections, per carriage.
