How to use the HISTORY SHEET
History Sheets can be a valuable asset to your database.
Create one history sheet per equipment. Reference it in the equipment
record under "SUPP SHEET ID" and also in the history sheet field on the
master schedule record.
If it is listed on the equipment record, it will print out with the equipment history report.
If you want to print the history sheet with an active work order that
already has a checklist, in the form of a SUPP SHEET, attach the history
sheet as a continuation as follows:
-For regular SUPPLEMENTAL SHEETS, put CONTINUED: history sheet name on line 54 of the text processor file.
ex: CONTINUED: HIST101
-For REFERENCE SHEETS put CONTINUED: history sheet name at the end of the text processor file.
ex: CONTINUED: REF101
OOPS! TECH SUPPORT TIPS
BackUp - BackUp - BackUp ... We'll say it one more time ... Don't Forget to do a BackUp!
Think of back-up as Preventive Maintenance for your data files. Here
are some helpful hints for creating that data safety net we call BACKUP:
Keep several sets of BackUp disks and alternate their use; Perhaps five
different sets, one for each day of the week. That way you will always
have data five days back. Alternate by day and once a month retain one
Keep a good log of backups.
Backup before you produce PM Work Orders from the Master Schedule.
Backup after you complete a batch of Work Orders.
Periodically, do a backup to new diskettes and store them offsite.
Remind yourself to Backup by creating a PM Master Schedule that prints
out with your regular PM Work Orders. This could be used as your weekly
Remember - BackUp ... You will have less downtime for your system ... You will have little or no data re-entry.
AD-HOC Reports & Screens
Allows you to Create your own reports with the OOPS! CUSTOM REPORTS
MODULE ... you can build a whole collection of customized reports
showing the information you want, the way you want it to appear.
Here is the latest from the design tech experts...
This report allows you to query all instructions and remarks for any word or phrase. (in this example we have used the word "fire" as the special condition to query for)
Create a report using the Work Order History File. Give the Report the following title,
"Allows you to query instructions and remarks". Select the fields you want to display. Enter the special conditions as:
ir eq "*fire*"
Enter the following statement on the Special Instructions line
macro ir instr1+instr2+instr3+rem1+rem2
Run the report. It will generate a report with all the work orders that have the word "fire" in the instructions or remarks.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call our Technical
Support Group to assist you with the set up. OOPS! is flexible. If you
need information that is in the database we can help you create the
report you want.
