I am reporting on a package which contains requirements traced to other requirements and this works very well.
I would like to show the package name in the header of the document. The problem I have is as soon as I insert the package in another section of the document, it uses exactly the same profile element and thus shows an exact duplicate of the other section.
Any suggestions on how I can show only the package name in one area of the document and then show all of the contents of the same package in another area of the document.
Its was requirement #1 of eaDocX that the same thing will print in the same way throughout your document.
…but we modified that a bit, so each Element Reports can use different formatting from the rest of the document. Have you tried that ?
I did use an Element Report and selected only include “Package”. This does not work. I am not sure what else too try.
I am finding that the consumers of the documentation are having trouble keeping track of which package the document is describing thus the requirement of having the package name in the header of the document. I would also like to show the package name as the title of the document. I am currently putting it there manually and while this works, since I am generating many documents, the opportunity for error is great.
The way I usually fix this is use Word to create a running footer/header made from a current heading. If the header is a package name, then this gives the reader some context.
Or, put the parent package name somewhere in the Profile for each element.
