[Video] Work Order Parts And Labor Combined Report

The video below shows you how to use the Work Order Parts and Labor Labor Combined report and shows you how to read it

One warning I want to give you about with this report is that it takes a lot of resources on your computer to run especially if you don't narrow down the scope.

If you generate a lot of work orders you should narrow the criteria to a small date range and or a specific piece of equipment.

One thing unique about this report and the other report just below it on the list is that it pops up an elapsed time message which allows you to cancel all the queries needed to run the report before it finishes.

This allows you to start over narrow the criteria if it is taking too long for you.

Enjoy!
