Report Locations

Each fiber report consists of the report itself, an .xml file, and its template, the .xslt file. The .xslt files may require other files, such as images, to support the format of any given report.

NOTE: With the 10.2.1a release, the Cable Report does not generate an .xml file, a template, or .xslt file. You can modify the .html file that appears in your browser when the report runs to change it (add a logo, rename columns, etc.).
  • The current user's My Documents folder is the only place where the report itself (the .xml file) is generated, e.g., username\Documents\ArcFM Solution\Fiber Manager\Reports (or, in Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents). Every report you generate creates a single time-stamped .xml file

  • The .xslt file and its supporting files, which determine the format of the report, are created in three places when you initially generate a report. If the .xslt is missing from the location where the .xml report resides in the current user's My Documents folder, Fiber Manager looks to each of these locations in the order listed below in order to copy the .xslt back to the current user's My Documents folder. If it does not exist in the first location, it looks in the second location in the list, and so on.

  1. The current user's My Documents folder (Windows 7: username\Documents\ArcFM Solution\Fiber Manager\Reports, Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents): If only one person at your company creates reports, you can customize the .xslt and associated files in this folder.
  2. The Public My Documents folder (Windows 7: C:\Users\Public\Documents\ArcFM Solution\Fiber Manager\Reports, Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\ArcFM Solution\Fiber Manager\Reports): If the .xslt and associated files used by that template are missing in the current users's My Documents folder, ArcFM will copy report templates in this folder to the current user's My Documents folder. Use this folder if multiple ArcFM users are responsible for report creation. Remember to delete the .xslt file from the current user's My Documents folder. It's also possible to map the contents of a folder on a network drive to this Public My Documents folder, and maintain .xslt files there instead.
  3. The ArcFM installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Miner and Miner\ArcFM Solution\Bin\Style Sheets\Fiber Manager): If the .xslt and associated files used by that template are missing in the current user's My Documents folder and are also absent from the Public My Document folder, ArcFM will copy report templates in this installation folder to the current user's My Documents folder. You could use these files to restore templates missing from the first two locations in this list.
