  1. Not sure if this will help or make it more complicated; For the first problem; To print reports only for a specific location in HomeManage2018 simply "right-click" a location and select the "Run Report Using", then select the report you want to use - it will limit the report to the items in the location. For the other problem, it should be simple enough to change headings with the report editor (though I particularly enjoy modifying reports); 1. Identify the report you want to modify; a. Go to print your report, but on the first screen select Preview instead of Print before pressing START b. On the preview window, select File->Export, on the export screen make a note of the filename (eg. on my report I have AssetsByPicture.lst) - No need to export the report, just click on CANCEL then exit the Report Preview Window. c. Now the fun bit, in Home Manage select Reporting->Edit Report d. Select the report with (almost) the same name as you saw above (AssetsByPicture.lst) and click open. e. In the Edit window, you should see the headings which you want to change, click on one of the headings f. Now click on a heading you want to change. (eg. Manuf.) and in the window that opens change the value (remembering it is in double quotes) (eg. change "Manuf." to "Brand") and click on ok. ..... repeat for any other heading you want to change. g. When done, select File->SaveAs and give it a new name (this avoids overwriting the original report) (eg. MyAssetPics.lst) h. Now, when running a report, select "Output Report Using.." and select your report. Anything more complicated and you really need to get into the report editor, I think there's a tutorial somewhere. Hope this helps.
  2. So I can't use Asset.GetNumImages as it always returns zero ... but I found a simple way which works for me; Use the function DrawingHeightSCM(Assset.Image2) ... it returns a zero value if there is no image and a non-zero value if the image exists - don't know why I didn't find this before. So now I have a formula to print line 2 ... DrawingHeightSCM(Asset.Image2) > 0
  3. Oh ... errr !! Except Asset.GetNumImages always seems to return 0. As a test I did a quick report to display images and also the value of Asset.GetImages ... in all cases (running type "preview") the value of Asset.GetNumImages was 0 :-(
  4. Brilliant ... Thanks - Asset.GetNumImages is the way for me ... All assets have image1, only a few have image 2 so condition Asset.GetNumImages > 1 is perfect.
  5. I'm trying to create an Assset report where the second line contains Asset.image2. I want to only print the second line if the Asset.image2 has a value (ie. has a picture added to the asset). Obviously making the line appear (or not) should be a simple matter of applying a formula to decide if the picture exists or not, however most functions complain about a picture type because they expecting a string and not a picture. Currently I am thinking about adding a user field called something like "picture 2 added" and printing line 2 if that is true .... but it is a bit of a pain to fill in this new field for around 50% of my assets. Anyone know a better way, or how to do this properly using the picture fields ?
  6. Hi Admin, [ View -> Show->Vehicles - Select the vehicle to delete on the panel on the right, then try to delete] Definitely "Delete Vehicles" which have no assets assigned doesn't delete them for me (HomeManage I also found once a vehicle has been assigned on the asset details screen, it is not possible to remove the assignation - it only allows the ability to select the same or another vehicle, this only really leaves the option to delete an asset to disassociate it from the vehicle.
