    DDR not showing layouts or scripts

    john9210

      FM 15 ADV, Windows 10 64 bit. The DDR report is not showing the layouts and scripts that a field is used in. Can this be fixed? If not, is it possible to use an earlier version of the DDR?

          I think you are wrong. Each part of your database will be appear in the DDR.

           

          Have you tried any of the analysis tools  like

          Base Elements

          FMPerception

          Inspector Pro

           

          to get more out of your DDR?

            I'm running FM Pro Adv version 15.02.220, Windows 10, 64 bit. The DDR report is my most important tool in the toolbox, and I have generated and referred to them more times than I can count. My DDR output has never failed to show the layouts and scripts that a database field is used in. Is it one particular field, or all fields?

              Yes, the DDR has been one of the most important items in my toolbox too and I've used it for years. But, with FM 15 adv it isn't showing the layouts and scripts for any field. Is there a setting somewhere? Could this be a bug that needs to be reported. Very frustrating. My version is FMP Adv 15.0.3.305.

               

              I have not tried Base Elements, FMPerception or InspectorPro. What are these programs? In the past the DDR has met all my needs.

                Whe you first select the option from Tools to create the DDR, you get a list of options for what to include in the report. What options did you choose?

                    I usually choose all the options.

                      Hi John,

                       

                      I am the author of InspectorPro and if you haven't tried my tool I invite you to give it a try ... or any other tool for that matter. The DDR is great but it is XML. What InspectorPro does is gather up all the references of say a field, layout, script other any other element of your solution, and present it for you in a much more manageable way. You can also search for your items and see references and dependencies... It can also help you track down all the problems that exist in your solution and compare one version of your DDR to another version and see what changes have occurred.

                       

                      I invite you to check it out when you get a chance.
