Calendar in Pay roll report

I have done similar creating a UD table with Months as records then reading Part Tran Table for shipments STK-CUS for manufactured parts or issues to jobs STK-MTL for purchased parts. The dashboard then has rows for months and columns for the past 6 years creating a summary grid of shipments on the part or usage. Takes 20 seconds or so to build depending on the part but displays nice. Who says you can build a cross tab style dashboard.  Link UDCodes to Part To PartTran.

In a BAQ it would be the first table you select.  You then link the next table or tables to it with an outer join.


What I did was to set up a UD table with all the dates.  I then linked Sales Orders and Invoices to it.  What this gave me was each row of data had either sales order data in it, Invoice data, or nothing at all.  I then created a complicated Crystal Report that listed all the days of the month along with totals for sales orders and Invoices for each day.

So when you say you use this table as the “top” table….how are you doing that exactly?

I ask because we want to create a time and attendance program to force a point system Kronos uses.  In other words I want to get rid of Kronos by re-developing it somehow in Epicor.

A trick I use is to populate a UD table with dates for the next 10 years.  I then use checkboxes in the UD table to mark workdays, holidays, etc.  I then make the UD table the "top" table for my other tables.  This way, I get a date even if there are no other records with that date linked to it.  Its kind of a brute force method, but it works.

Hello All,

I am using Vantage 803 version and created Time and Attendance report using ODBC crystal report where I grouped by-Clock_ID to display time their times.

The issue I am having is if an employee did not punch in/out for a day, it doesnt display anything(skips the day).

Is there any system calender that I can use to force all working days to be displayed and then row can show a blank in front of any missed clock-in.


P.S: I have tried using ProdCal but it does not pull any date into the report.
