Introducing Infor Lawson Smart Reports

November 21, 2012

By Matthew Albee

I am pleased to introduce a new no charge component, Infor Lawson Smart Reports. Infor Lawson Smart Reports is designed to make Infor Lawson reports beautiful. Infor Lawson Smart Reports enables the configuration of Infor Lawson standard report output to match a customer’s report styling requirements. For example, Infor Lawson Smart Reports enables report styling such as adding a company logo, bold, italics, underline, alignment, deleting and adding rows and columns, and many more report styling features. Infor Lawson Smart Reports does not require any additional license fee or licensing. All Infor Lawson System Foundation customers on maintenance have access to Infor Lawson Smart Reports. Infor Lawson Smart Reports operates with Infor Lawson System Foundation 9.0.1.11 and higher and Infor Lawson System Foundation 10.0.2.0 and higher. To provide an overview of Infor Lawson Smart Reports, we welcome Keith Knuth, Principal Software Architect. Please see Keith’s recorded video posted below for an overview of Infor Lawson Smart Reports and its exciting capabilities.

    Is this available for Lawson M3 also ?

  2. Keith Knuth says:

    Sorry, no. This is included with Infor Lawson System Foundation only.

  3. Tom T says:

    Could this be used for producing invoices or is it strictly a report customization function? Thank you.

  4. Keith Knuth says:

    Infor Lawson Smart Reports personalizes existing reports.

  5. Jon A. says:

    Are the customized LSR reports affected by upgrades or patch installations?

  6. Keith Knuth says:

    Generally speaking, no, LSR reports are not affected by application upgrades.

  7. Sally M. says:

    Do you need ‘Smart Office’ to implement Smart Reports?

  8. Keith Knuth says:

    Infor Smart Office is not required. You can view Smart Reports with just a browser.

  9. Justin West says:

    We have multiple business units each represented by a company id within Lawson. Could each company have their own modified template, or would they all have to use the same one?

  10. Ruchi Dua says:

    Can a new parameter/field be added to existing report using Lawson Smart Report?

    Q: We have multiple business units each represented by a company id within Lawson. Could each company have their own modified template, or would they all have to use the same one?
    A: Yes, you may have a company-specific custom template. The template for each company should be placed in this directory: [LAWDIR]\[Product Line]\lsr\templates\custom\[ProgramCode]\[COMPANY]
    Q: Can a new parameter/field be added to existing report using Lawson Smart Report?
    Yes, technically a parameter can be added in the Parameters section in Report outline. However, a new parameter in a custom template won’t be read during LSR report generation. This will be purely for LSR designer use.
    Yes, a field can be added to a report. If you would like to bind your new field to the data, you may look for the data in DataSets pane.

  12. Larry says:

    Can LSR print bar codes on customer reports?

  13. Jerry Friedman says:

    Can LSR be used to modify field length? We have a field that is currently 10 characters and we want to increase that.
