Topic: Measurements in Report Wizard

I would like to be able to report on the 'measurements' field using the report wizard.
Our bat group is about to move to Recorder and this is where all their roost details will be held.

At the moment I don't see how they could report on these, unless this is a bug we alone are enjoying?
Please see attached screenshot showing the Report Wizard's lack of options for this....

Thanks, with best wishes,
Lizzy Peat

Re: Measurements in Report Wizard

Looks like a bug just for you Lizzy, we can see lots of measurement fields (see attached).

Re: Measurements in Report Wizard

It looks like the report wizard displays the measurement options that are actually present in your database, so the screen print I attached will be unique to GiGL.

Do you have any measure qualifiers and types?

Attached is a user report that should list all measurement types and qualifiers in your database for each data type that support measurements (location, sample, taxon, biotope).

Re: Measurements in Report Wizard

Hi Lizzy

Interesting - looks like a bug in R6. Try running the XML report, just to double-check it shows the same results (not that I'd know how to then proceed either way but it might give Mike W an idea if he is able to investigate it). You'll find the report under "GiGL -> Measurement types and Qualifiers".

Re: Measurements in Report Wizard

Is the context correctly set for the measurement_type? Ie on the attached is this checkbox ticked?

Re: Measurements in Report Wizard

Thanks for the reply Charles, yes it is.
Andy, we are missing this XML report you mention, are you able to send the xml file to us please?
Also, are you able to move this thread into 'bug reports', or should I create a new post there?
Thank you.

Re: Measurements in Report Wizard

Hi Lizzy

I've moved this thread into the troubleshooting and bug reports section as you requested.

The XML report I mentioned "GiGL_MeasurementTypesQualifiers.xml" is attached to an earlier reply from me in this thread on 25-07-2022.

Cheers
Andy
