I'm having extreme difficulty with Standard Text formatting restrictions.
As a maintenance planner, I am required to release work orders for routine inspections/testing of building equipment. Attached to these work orders are the manufacturers maintenance requirements (written in standard text). Ideally, I would like to create a table, similar to a checklist, of tasks to be completed. Unfortunately table formatting is not accepted in Standard Text. Without this, it's difficult to organize the information in a way that is comprehensive for the end user.
What alternatives exist for Standard Text?
I use 2 options...
1) Document linking... (to the work order or equipment for manual printing)
2) Scan the document, save as Bitmap, and enter it as a command in the standard text.
(or, in the task list 'long text') for automatic printing within the order.
We have a checklist required for operators to inspect equipment prior to start-up, following an unscheduled outage.
(as result of recently misplaced hand-tools causing damage shortly after start-up)
In my operation task list long text, I inserted;
Perform Line Clearance checklist
BITMAP 'Z_CRPX_2064_PAGE_1' OBJECT GRAPHICS ID BMAP TYPE BMON
BITMAP 'Z_CRPX_2064_PAGE_2' OBJECT GRAPHICS ID BMAP TYPE BMON
(the Z_CRPX_2064_PAGE_? being the custom checklist document scanned as a Bitmap through transaction Se78)
Basically, the standard text prints the checklist document within the task list.
(the image of the document... along with company logo, check boxes, entry fields, sign-offs, etc.)
Upload the document (as a bitmap) with se78 , then you can access it in So10 as Standard Text. (INSERT > GRAPHICS)
Give it a try...
