ReportWorks (6)
I have built a Parent Teacher Conference Letter in ReportWorks. In the scope I clicked
on the runtime controls and selected "Use of Current Student Selection". When I run the report it pulls my current selection and then adds students that are no longer enrolled here.

I figured it out. When you are creating the report, there is an area where you again select the current students.

I am trying to build a Registration form in ReportWorks that takes all of the current information we have on a student (ie name, address, ethnicity, etc) so that parents only have to change the data that has changed. I am setting it up as a form letter, and using Student: Basic as my Data Set, but it won't let me pull from the student information (ie students.mailing_zip). I think I need a Data Set that has Student: Basic + Students, but don't know how to set up more Data Sets.

Can someone point me in the correct direction. Keep in mind that I know enough about ReportWorks to be dangerous.

I have created a simple report in reportworks, using the limited fields Powerschool has made available, but I was able to get the majority of the information needed in the report. When I go the publish the report, the Application and Category drop down sections are defaulted to No Applications and No Categories. When left at the only selection available, I get an error message stating "Not ready for Publishing        An Application and Category must be selected" Does anyone know how to fill the drop down selections with Select the SIS from the pop-up menu. Also, according the help menu, Categories are created in the SIS application. When new categories are added, this list is updated dynamically and the list is refreshed each time the Publish window is accessed. 

As it is now, I have a report but cannot use it until I can find how to apply an application and a category, so any input will be appreciated.

To add categories you need to go to system>reportworks administration>report categories.  You can set these up here.  I have done this and my report completed but I couldn't open the report.  I have put in an escalation ticket in on this more than a week ago and have yet to hear anything.  There are similar cases like mine on Powersource.  It sounds like there are some bugs with reportworks that they need to get worked out. 

I have created the categories and have the report published, but when I go into a school and make the selections to have the report run, it stays on pending for hours and hours (over 12 hours to run 1 grade level). It never has completed running the report. Any ideas???

Does anyone know how to set tabs in ReportWorks? I'm not finding anything in the documentation.

 I don't know as we just got upgraded to 6.0 yesterday and I have not got around to playing with it. BUT I was at PSU back in June. I have the e-copy of report works that might talk about it. If you need a copy, let me know..

That would be awesome!! Thanks!!!
