Within Report Explorer there is a report called Company_Logo and this is where you need to set up your company logo. Within the scripts, Jim2 calls this company logo report to be printed at a certain position. This position is determined from global variables.


Each report that requires a logo to be printed will have an entry in global variables – be aware that some of these global variables are used in more than one report. For example: the JobLogoLeft and JobLogoTop are used in reports from jobs which display a logo, including the Proforma Invoice Portrait, but the Proforma Invoice Landscape has its own JobHideOnInvLandscapeLeft and JobHideOnInvLandscapeTop. Even though the proforma invoice reports (portrait and landscape) both use the same script, they have different logo variable settings.


The comments of each global variable contain the reports they relate to, and also the default settings. If a user changes the value and it is incorrect, you can get the default value from the comments.
