  1. Wow thanks dotnetic! 👍 That's exactly what I was looking for: someone to point me in the right direction. The ProFields: Table was on my shortlist of options and just wanted to be sure that I what I was trying to do couldn't be achieved without ProFields. Thanks! 🙏 Now all I need is to find some indication/examples of some kind of nested templates/hierarchical templates implementation... will keep looking.. I'm pretty sure that with ProFields + nested templates I should have the main ingredients for what I need to do. Cheers!
  2. Thank you Rick for your reply! Yeah I'm sorry for the head scratching, will try to put up a diagram or something to explain myself better. Ok gotcha on the fields! Will look for a way to organise fields, I can see it getting pretty overwhelming..
  3. Hi everyone, long time fan of PW but never really got to use it. I finally seem to have a chance to get my hands dirty and was looking for anyone of this fine community to point me in the right direction. What I need to do: I'm trying to build a product that outputs online reports. Each report is made up of several sections that show data for a specific issue. The data is entered by users of different teams, each team sees their own specific data entry forms and the data collected can be output to different modules of a specific report. Data entered by Team1 can finish in modules A, C and F of the Red Report and modules B, D and G of the Blue Report, all this for specific years in order to plot some trends. I hope this is the right amount of confusing. 😆 So to recap I have: Multiple Teams each with their own forms to enter data that is ouput to Multiple Modules, different combinations of modules make up Multiple Reports that span Multiple Years ...so multiple head scratchings. A few initial questions: Can Templates be heirarchical/composite? I was thinking of having Reports as templates made up of modules that are templates themselves (that could be in some cases be made up of sub-templates). This way I can ouput the whole Report or just a single module. Can I use the same field multiple times in the same fieldset (and template)? This is a total noob question and I'm sorry for that. Here's an example: I have a form where I need to collect data on Materials used by each team. The form allows the user to enter 'rows' where each row collects data for a specific material used by the team (Example: paper, toners, etc..) for each row I collect different amounts of quantities (Example: new paper (kg), recycled paper (kg), etc..). I thought I could setup a generic quantity field (integer) and then use it multiple times to collect the various quantities by defining a different label and field name but always using the same 'original field'. It seems this is not possible and I have to setup each and every field I will need to use even if some might be almost identical, i thought I could 'evoke' a field I setup and 'override' the key and label for the field in order not to cause conflicts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Adam
