  • PCDMIS v4.1 - Logo

    Since upgrading to v4.1 (as you can see ), I can't get my logo to appear in the report.
    I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

    Just figured it out this morning......

    Just figured that one out!!!!!

    Step 1: Go to File/Reporting/Edit/Label Template
    Step 2: Pick FILE_HEADER.LBL
    Step 3: Pick the cell that includes the PC-DMIS graphic. Click (double click) a few times on it until the background in ONLY THAT cell becomes blue!!!!
    Step 4: When the background is blue, right click on it. That brings up a menu that will allow you choose a new graphic for in the report. Hit apply.

    BUT THERE IS ANOTHER PITFALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You can NOT save this LBL file until you take the "read-only" property off. Wilcox has protected all .LBL files (see C:\PCDMISW\reporting, click file and then on properties and you will see that they are all read only!).

    I suggest you copy all files in reporting to a back-up directory, so you do not loose the defaults. Then go back to C:\PCDMISW\reporting and take the read-only check mark off of all the .LBL files. Now you can overwrite them.

    Go back into PC-DMIS and save your FILE_HEADER.LBL.


    Works like charm. Did it this morning!

        It's not so difficult once you get the hang of it, but it is a tad bit more involved. Here's a post I wrote up on how to modify the Report Heading in 4.x to display a custom bitmap. Jan pretty much covered it, but for what it's worth, here you go:

          Ah, there we go.

          I agree, now that I know how to do it, it is not difficult at all.

          It wasn't easy to figure it out on my own. My biggest problem was finding the read-only property that was set. It would be nice if the software would check for this and provide a warning! That would have sped up my search work by probably 2 weeks.

          Anyway, I should have checked here first of course. Thanks for your help.
