You’ve asked for it, we’ve asked for it, and Deltek listened. They improved reporting from grids in Deltek Vision® 7.4.
Gone are the days of having to accept all the rows in a grid to create a report. In the past, if you wanted to run a report of all the employees with a
license in Massachusetts, you’d get a list that includes every other state in which those employees have a license:
Now you can limit a report to only select rows.
How It Works
In Deltek Vision 7.4, select the “Only List Match Selections” check box in reporting options. Your report will only return rows with the same criteria
as your selection.
For many users, this will now allow you to:
- Store data easier inside existing Info Centers
- Create reports directly from Vision that you previously couldn’t
- Reduce exporting to Microsoft Excel®
This is a good time to review your overall use of reports. Think about reports you’ve always wanted, or data in a specific Info Center you’ve always
wanted to include — they may now be possible. Also, be sure to share this information with others in your firm.
If you’re still struggling with how to report from Vision, consider scheduling a CCG Search and Report Workshop. We offer a variety of on-site and
online workshops to help you create specific reports and get more out of your ERP investment. Whether you want a full-day session or a quick overview,
your CCG consultant will be happy to set up a workshop tailored to your needs.
