The technique used is to use user field variables to hold references to the information that shall be fetched from the project. The variables are called User Fields in Writer and can be found under Insert->Field->More Fields->Variables->User Fields. In Words they are called Custom Variables and can be found under Text Editing docker->Variable->Custom. The easiest way to create a new report template is to modify an existing one as all user field s are defined. User Field Variables Variables The variables are used to enable the generator to extract data from the project. A variable can be a reference to a single data field, a reference to table data or a reference to chart data. Single Data Field A single data field variable has the following format: data group name.property = property identifier where: data group name can be tr, project or schedule (see below). property makes the user field name unique. property identity identifies the property in the data group. Table Data A table in a report template consists of a variable to specify the data table to use. The variable name must start with table (e.g. tableTasks) and the variable value must be the name of the data table (e.g. tasks). Immediately after the variable, a table must be inserted and columns filled with user field variables that specify which properties to fetch from the table specified above. These variables must have names that start with the name of the table variable above. These variables have the following format: tableTasks.property = property identifier where: property makes the user field name unique. property identity identifies the property in the data group. Chart Data A chart in a report template consists of a variable to specify the data to use in the chart. The variable name must start with chart (e.g. chartBudgetCost) and the variable value specifies the data group and values the populate the chart with. The variable has the following format (note the semicolons): name = data group; values=comma separated list of data properties; where: name must start with chart (e.g. chartBudgetCost) data group comma separated list of data properties identifies the properties in the data group. E.g.: chartBudget = project; values=bcws cost, bcwp cost, acwp cost; Translated Labels Translated labels enable us to produce general report templates that can be used in different languages.

The variable name identifies the table and must start with table, e.g. tableTaskStatus. The value of the variable is used to point to the data to be fetched and must be one of the supported tables listed above, e.g. taskstatus. You then put variables inside the table cells with name and value from the table below. Note that the schedules table supports the values described in Schedule Values above. The projects, tasks and taskstatus tables supports the following values: Variable Name Variable Value Description table name.name Name The name of the task or project table name.wbscode WBS Code table name.type Type Type of task table name.responsible Responsible table name.allocation Allocation table name.estimatetype Estimate Type table name.calendar Calendar table name.estimate Estimate Most likely estimate table name.optimistic Optimistic Optimistic ratio table name.pessimistic Pessimistic Pessimistic ratio table name.risk Risk Estimate uncertainty table name.constraint Constraint Type of time constraint table name.constraintstart Constraint Start Constraint start time table name.constraintend Constraint End Constraint finish time table name.runingaccount Running Account Account for running costs table name.startupaccount Startup Account Account for startup cost table name.startupcost Startup Cost The cost incurred at startup of the task table name.shutdownaccount Shutdown Account Account for shutdown cost table name.shutdowncost Shutdown Cost The cost incurred at shutdown of the task table name.description Description Task description table name.expected Expected Calculated most likely estimate table name.optimistic Optimistic Calculated optimistic estimate table name.pessimistic Pessimistic Calculated pessimistic estimate table name.starttime Start Time Scheduled start time table name.endtime End Time Scheduled finish time table name.duration Duration Scheduled duration table name.earlystart Early Start Earliest possible start table name.earlyfinish Early Finish Earliest possible finish table name.latestart Late Start Latest possible start table name.latefinish Late Finish Latest possible finish table name.positivefloat Positive Float table name.freefloat Free Float table name.negativefloat Negative Float table name.startfloat Start Float table name.finishfloat Finish Float table name.assignaments Assignments Resource assignments table name.varianceest Variance (Est) Calculated estimate variance table name.variancedur Variance (Dur) Calculated duration variance table name.optimisticdur Optimistic (Dur) Calculated optimistic duration table name.pessimisticdur Pessimistic (Dur) Calculated pessimistic duration table name.status Status Task status as shown in Task Status View table name.completion % Completed Task completion table name.plannedeffort Planned Effort Planned effort table name.actualeffort Actual Effort Actual effort table name.remaningeffort Remaining Effort Remaining effort table name.plannedcost Planned Cost Planned cost table name.actualcost Actual Cost Actual cost table name.actualstart Actual Start Actual start table name.started Started table name.actualfinish Actual Finish Actual finish table name.finished Finished table name.schedulingstatus Scheduling Status Scheduling status table name.bcws BCWS Budgeted Cost of Work Scheduled (cost based) table name.bcwp BCWP Budgeted Cost of Work Performed (cost based) table name.acwp ACWP Actual Cost of Work Performed (cost based) table name.spi SPI Schedule Performance Index table name.critical Critical Task is critical table name.criticalpath Critical Path Task is in critical path table name.notscheduled Not Scheduled Not interesting table name.assignmentmissing Assignment Missing Not interesting table name.resourceoverbooked Resource Overbooked Not interesting table name.resourceunavailable Resource Unavailable Not interesting table name.constrainterror Constraints Error Not interesting table name.effortnotmet Effort Not Met Not interesting table name.schedulingerror Scheduling Error Not interesting table name.level Node level, Level Not interesting table name.statusnote Status Note Note: Not implemented table name.owner Owner Must not be used, and are not very interesting table name.status Status Must not be used, and are not very interesting table name.time Time Must not be used, and are not very interesting Chart Use by placing a variable with name chartX (X=number) with a value project before the chart that shall be used. The variable has this format: Variable: Name: chartX (X=number) Value: project; values=data; where data is a comma separated list of values to be include in the chart. Possible data values are: bcws effort Budgeted cost of work scheduled, effort based. bcwp effort Budgeted cost of work performed, effort based. acwp effort Actual cost of work performed, effort based. spi effort Schedule performance index, effort based. cpi effort Cost performance index, effort based. bcws cost Budgeted cost of work scheduled, cost based. bcwp cost Budgeted cost of work performed, cost based. acwp cost Actual cost of work performed, cost based. spi cost Schedule performance index, cost based. cpi cost Cost performance index, cost based. The charts you create in your template must have the same (or more) number of columns as the number of values you specify in your variable. Example: Variable: Name: chart1 Value: values=bcws cost,bcwp cost, acwp cost; Note that you cannot mix effort- and cost-based values. If you want to show both, create two charts. Gantt Not supported.
