    Hi Jawad,

    Problem in Discreet industry,unlike Process industry, is that they ask for print out of PI sheet for processing and modifing these PI sheet, for PDF file, in XSTEPS is very difficult.

    We had such issue where user requirement was specific for header datas and we had very tough time resolving formatting the PI sheet.

    If you have any such information on how to create plant specific format and then assign it to specific plants, then do share.

    That will certainly be some use.

    XML coding and formatiing is very big issue in discreet inductry since they ask for print out of each XSTEP Tree and each plant has it’s own format.
