The tracking code is a text entity that is printed along the lower left margin of report forms. Example of a Tracking Code showing the report form name, the project file, the data template used in the design of the form, and the print date:
GENERAL BH/TP/WELL GINT STD CANADA LAB.GPJ GINT STD CANADA LAB.GDT 11/31/14
This is how it looks when printed:
Ideally you should use a tracking code in all your reports. This is a perfect use for a block, which is created and maintained in one place and used in many places.
First we will create a drawing that we can add to a block.
Click the New button to add a new drawing. The New... dialog appears.
In the Name field enter Track Codes and click OK.
On the menu bar, select DrawTextText. The Text Properties dialog opens.
In the data tool, from the System drop-down list, select Data Items.
From the Items drop-down list select the items you wish to use and click the Paste button directly above. Repeat for each item you wish to show. Example:
<<ReportID>> <<ProjFile>> <<DataTemplate>> <<Format(<<Now>>,<<fdNumSlash>>)>>
Enter the following on the Main tab:
Click OK to place the text entity at the lower left.
Now we will add a block containing the tracking codes to your report form.
Select the template you wish to modify.
Click the Reset button.
Click OK. Enter the following values in the Main tab of the Block Properties dialog box:
Click OK to place the block.
A block insert (labeled ‘DWGLIB TRACK CODES All’) appears at lower left beside the report form. The inserted text entity displays vertically along the left margin rectangle (shown here with SettingsIconize Data Fields unchecked so you can see it).
