Prebuilt Reports
Prebuilt Reports - Universal File Layout (UFL)
The Universal File Layout (UFL) includes the data field names, types, lengths, categories
and descriptions that are used as functional fields for basic features in all solutions. The UFL
is used as the official data format for all OrgPublisher 11 Prebuilt Reports. By formatting
data following the specific field order and field value definition of the UFL, you can choose
from the many Prebuilt Report templates provided with the OrgPublisher.
The Universal File Layout contains a color coded legend in the upper left corner to help you
identify where your data should be mapped. The first two field sections must be mapped
with your associated data. Any field you want to use that does not map to the specified
fields in the Universal File Layout should be considered as a custom field.
In addition, the file layout specifies when a field is required or, perhaps, conditionally
required, depending on the solution you have chosen and the data you want to view and
analyze.
Figure 6.
OrgPublisher uses data specifically geared toward the type of report or chart you want to
create. Several fields are reserved for future use by the OrgPublisher application, and
custom fields use data rows 129 and up.
The Notes column contains product specific information that may not pertain to the field
when used in a different solution.
The HRIS column used for your SAP® solution field names, where applicable.
It is important that the data feed include all fields, even should they be left blank since no
associated HR data is being provided for a select number of fields.

5. Open the published chart and click the Help button in the toolbar. The custom help files
open in the web browser. If you do not type a custom URL, the Help button opens the
default end user help page.
Using Row Level Security
Note: If you want to implement row level security, you must first contact Professional
Service.
Once you have implemented this feature with Professional Services, you can create an
Access Control List (ACL) file and use it to control row level security in the chart. Row level
security allows select employees access to sensitive information needed to make informed
decisions, while, at the same time, preventing other employees from seeing this data. An
ACL file is a comma-delimited list of UserID, Type, and TargetValues.
Before you begin creating the ACL file, there are certain things you must know, such as box
IDs, and who should or should not have access to specific box infirmation. Based on this,
you can determine which model (Grant or GrantDeny) you need to use.
Once you have created the ACL file, verify that it is saved in the same location as your
chart, and that it is named exactly the same as your chart.
Note: Enabling Org Modeling or Succession planning features in a published secure
chart that contains one or more formula fields that have security restrictions set may
expose that data when using row level security. Please test this before publishing.
Creating an ACL File for Row Level Security
Available in OrgPublisher Premier, an Access Control List (ACL) file must be created first in
order to provide row level security. Viewing the ACL Preparation list may be helpful before
beginning this procedure.
1. Open Microsoft Notepad or any other text editor.
2. Type the first line as the header. There will be two or three tokens, or pieces of
information.
a. Security Model = "Grant" or "GrantDeny"
b. Security field ID = typically boxid "2"
c. Access designation for the GrantDeny model = "True" (allows access to unsecured
boxes) or "False" (denies access to unsecured boxes) For example: Grant,2,False
Note: You can designate an access for the Grant model, but if left blank, the Grant
model will always deny access to unsecured boxes, regardless of a true or False
designation.
3. The remainder of the lines are the ACL comma delimited lists. Follow the ACL List
formats. For example: SteppA,G,22,24,26,58 (where SteppA is the user; G is the
Grant type; 22, 24, 26, and 58 are the box IDs that can be accessed by Amy Stepp)
4. Save the file using the name of the published chart, with the extension of .acl,
publishedchartname.acl.
5. Place the file in the same location as the published chart.
6. Republish the secured EChart to verify the row-level security works as you want it.
A log is created each time you publish the chart using the ACL file for row level security,
with the same name as the chart and .acl file, publishedchartname.log, if the user has

Input File Layout
The Input File Layout defines the order of columns in the comma-separated text file that
OrgPublisher opens to generate your org chart. It also specifies the order of fields to send to
OrgPublisher when you choose to generate org charts automatically using the Component
Object Model (COM) interface.
This layout does not apply to charts created using the Prebuilt Reports.

Box title
A required field, the parent box ID can be any string of numbers and/or
characters that represent the report to box of this record. The data type for
fields 1 and 2 should match, for instance, if field 1 is numeric, then field 2
should be numeric. The parent box ID is not displayed in the chart.
Only the top person in a chart will have an empty parent box ID.
A required field, the box ID can be any string of numbers and/or characters
that uniquely represent a box within the chart. This ID can be duplicated for
several records when multiple people are located in the same box. The box ID
is not displayed in the chart. The data type for fields 1 and 2 should match, for
instance, if field 1 is numeric, then field 2 should be numeric.
You can add a unique box ID, typically an employee ID from your database.
You can also use a position code if you use position management. Where the
employee is placed in the chart depends on the Auto Build option the position
type priority, and the Sort option.
Note:
If you use the matrix reporting, or multi-relationship feature in OrgPublisher,
the box ID for the person reporting to more than one person must be unique
for each instance in the chart in order ensure correct drilling up through
hierarchy.
The Box title field is optional. The box title can be any string of numbers
and/or characters and is shown as the top text entry in the org chart box that
it describes. This can be a cost center or full department name.
The box title should be unique to the box ID that is also contained in this
record. The same box title is displayed in every record that contains this box
ID.

An optional field, but if left blank it will default to E for Employee. Record type
defines the position type of each person in your organization. OrgPublisher
provides several predefined record types. You can also create custom record
types to define other positions in your organization. Record types for custom
position types using more than one character should use brackets, for example
<MT>.
M = Manager
E = Employee
A = Assistant
C = Contractor
I = Indirect report
PR = Partner
<SF> = Staff Function
<SC> = Succession Candidate
B = Box
You cannot insert a person in a B record type. It is typically used to display
org units or departments only.
The person ID field is optional. It can contain any string of numbers and/or
characters to represent the ID or unique identifier for a person, such as
employee ID.
With OrgPublisher version 5 and later this field is used to add a person to a
group and to identify a person in order to add a multi-relationship icon.
Therefore, the field is displayed and searchable by end users. Do not store
sensitive information, such as a social security number, in this field.
Example:
"1","2",”ABC Department”,"M","9999999",”Smith”,”Rose”,,"JOB001",”Supervisor"
An optional field, the last name field represents the last, or family, name of
the person a record represents. If left blank, OrgPublisher inserts an open
position.
Example:
"1","2",”ABC Department”,"M","999999999",”Smith”,”Rose”,,"JOB00"1,”Supervisor”
Note:
An Input File record represents an Open position when the Last Name, First
Name, and Middle Name fields are empty.
Example:
"1","2",”ABC Department”,"M","9-99999999",,,,"JOB001",”Supervisor”
An optional field, the first name field represents the first name of the person
that a record represents.
Example:
"1","2",”ABC Department”,"M","999999999",”Smith”,”Rose”,,"JOB001",”Supervisor”
Note:
An Input File record represents an Open position when the Last Name, First
Name, and Middle Name fields are empty.
Example:
"1","2",”ABC Department”,"M","9-99999999",,,,"JOB001",”Supervisor”
An optional field, the middle name field represents the middle name of the
person that a record represents.
Example:
"1","2",”ABC Department”,"M","999999999",”Smith”,”Rose”,”L”,JOB001,”Supervisor”

The job ID can be any string of numbers and/or characters that uniquely
represent a job title or position title within the chart. If records are combined
into one box, job titles are defaulted to list in ascending sequence by job ID
and are sorted within each position type.
The job ID is not displayed in the chart. This field is used in Auto Build.
The Job Title field is optional. The job title can be any string of numbers and/or
characters and is shown above the individual name within a box.
A job title is associated with the first position type beneath the job title. The
priority of the position type determines the order of job titles of different
position types appearing within a box. You can override the priority by
assigning the sequence number in field 13 of the comma-delimited text file.
In the following example, each record that contains job ID "JOB001" also
contains the job title "Supervisor."
Example:
"1","2",”ABC Department”,"M",,"Smith",'A",,"JOB001",”Supervisor”
"1","3",”ABC Department”,"M",,”Turner”,”B”,,"JOB001",”Supervisor”
"1","4",”ABC Department”,"M",,”Brown”,”K”,,"JOB001",”Supervisor”
Field 11 is reserved for use by OrgPublisher. To avoid problems when you are
creating an org chart automatically from data, and to ensure compatibility with
future versions of OrgPublisher, leave this field blank.
Field 12 is the box sequence number and accepts only numeric (integer only)
characters. It can be used, but is not required, to override the default
positioning of the boxes. By default, boxes are positioned from left to right
(level by level) in your chart alphabetically by box ID. This field is used when
you select the Sort by box ID option of the OrgPublisher Sort feature.
The job sequence number accepts only numeric (integer only) characters. It
can be used, but is not required, to override the default positioning of the job
title. By default, job IDs are used for sorting multiple jobs within a single box,
such as people in the same box as their manager.
The position sequence number can be used, but is not required, to override
the default positioning of the employee name, and must be numeric (integer
only) characters. By default, multiple employee names are sorted
alphabetically within a single box.
The file names of the photos in your chart are stored in the photo field. Add
photos with the Photo Wizard so that you can specify a common path for all of
your photo files. If photos are stored in different areas you must put the full
path name in this field.
Fields 16 is reserved for use by OrgPublisher. To avoid problems when you are
creating an org chart automatically from data and to ensure compatibility with
future versions of OrgPublisher, leave this field blank.

Position ID
OrgPublisher looks for Position ID in field 17. Position IDs are used for:
Tracking position movement in OrgHistory when comparing charts.
Tracking what positions have been pinned in the side-by-side Profile View.
Unique position IDs are very important for continued synchronization.
It’s preferable to have position IDs in the source data if you want to tie
changes back to the source system.
Note:
If you choose not to use this field for Position ID, it must be left blank.
You can also use a unique identifier in field 5 that OrgPublisher will use if field
17 is blank. If both fields are null, you can, instead, set up a custom field with
the Type selected as Position ID.

Level number is used to pass in your levels for use in the multi-level peer
display. This is a numeric absolute value level, for instance, if the manager
grade level is 10 and the report-to is 1, OrgPublisher charts the report-to box
as 9 levels below the manager box.
The level number is a differential from the parent level number, either in
ascending or descending order. The sequence cannot change in the middle of
the “chain.” There are 10 levels to work with at each parent box level; any
differential greater than 10 displays at the same level as 10. If there is no
value in the parent box, it is assumed to be 0 (zero).
Field 19 is reserved for use by OrgPublisher. To avoid problems when you are
creating an org chart automatically from data and to ensure compatibility with
future versions of OrgPublisher, leave these fields blank.
Input in fields 20 and up are for your custom fields, such as phone numbers,
room numbers and hotspot URLs. After populating these fields in the Input File
with your custom data, open the Custom Field Properties dialog and select
where these fields should be displayed in your chart.
A default label is supplied that you should type over. This example shows
custom fields of hire date and phone number in Positions 20 and 21.
If you plan to use the EChart security option, custom fields must be created to
hold the unique identifiers for both the Password and User ID.
Example:
"1","2",”ABC
Department”,"M",,”Smith”,”A”,,"JOB001",”Supervisor”,,,,,,,,,”1995/12/02”,”24
95”
Note:
When importing numeric fields, make sure that you do not use any leading
symbols, such as dollar signs. Verify that decimal places are set the way you
want them prior to importing those fields into OrgPublisher.
You can add leading and trailing symbols to numeric fields with the Field
Format dialog, but the decimal places cannot be adjusted after they are
imported. OrgPublisher does not change the value of numeric fields you bring
in. For instance, if you import 341.00, that's what the number is in
OrgPublisher. If you import 341, that's what OrgPublisher uses. Formatting
cannot change the value of the data you import.
Fields 26 - 49 and 65+ can be used for custom fields, as well as summaries. In
OrgPublisher Premier, you can perform basic calculations on numeric custom
fields in your chart and display this data in a summary field in your org chart.
Note:
The Summary Wizard inserts placeholders, if necessary, which display in the
Custom Field Properties dialog. These fields within OrgPublisher, occupy
sequences 20 -25, and are designated as field types other than summaries,
such as Text, Hotspot, or Email. As you create summary fields, OrgPublisher
starts placing them in sequence 26.

In addition to the predefined, required data fields of the Input File Layout, OrgPublisher
provides the capability for an unlimited number of fields that can be imported and
customized to include data that is unique to your environment.
The administrator maintains control over the custom fields to use in the planning chart.
Planners cannot add or delete custom fields.
Input File Layout Rules
When mapping your data to OrgPublisher, keep in mind the following points. If you are
working with the Prebuilt Reports features, you must map your data using the Universal File
Layout (UFL).
Note: A conditional formatting position type is used for formatting purposes only and
does not override a position type pulled from your data source.
Fields
1. Each input record must be laid out according to the Input File Layout or Universal File
Layout.
2. The first two fields in each record must contain the correct reporting relationship
information before a chart structure can build successfully.
3. The first 10 fields in each input file must be mapped correctly, matching the
OrgPublisher layout, although only the first two fields are required to contain data.
4. Field 5 must contain a unique person or employee ID if you intend to display multi-
relationship icons in your chart. This ID should not contain sensitive information because
it is displayed in the Update Person dialog and is searchable by end users.
5. Fields 11, 16, 17, and 19 are reserved fields for use by OrgPublisher. Populating field 17
with a unique position ID is strongly recommended when using OrgHistory.
6. Fields 12, 13, and 14 can contain sequence numbers (integers only) used by
OrgPublisher. Field 12 is used to Sort by box ID in the Sort Options feature.
7. Field 4 contains the record type. The record type defaults to E (employee) when blank.
8. Use Field 18 for level numbers if you want to use the Multi-level Peer Display feature.
The Multi-level Peer Display feature is not applicable to Assistant boxes and boxes
reporting to Assistants.
9. Custom fields begin with Field 20 and can continue sequentially through the rest of the
fields.
10. If you plan to use the Compare Two Charts feature, it is strongly recommended that you
create a custom field called Position ID and assign a unique ID to each instance of a
person in the chart. In addition, each open position should be assigned a unique ID.
11. Summary fields begin with Field 26 and can continue sequentially through the rest of the
fields.
12. It is necessary to enclose fields in quotes only when there is a comma within the field,
for example, "Smith,jr". The following record is valid, 0001,0002,Box title,B,,,,,,,.

13. Make sure that the Input File does not contain the quote character within any field. The
following record is invalid, 0001,0002,"Sales" Dept.", B,,,,,,,.
14. There should be no blank spaces or special characters (such as #, -, |, +, =, <, >, @, $,
etc.) in field names.
15. You can create open positions in your chart by passing null records into the Last Name,
First Name, and Middle Name input fields (Fields 6, 7, and 8).
16. When building a succession planning chart, select Specify custom field order to map
your data. This allows you to map your data to standard Succession Candidate fields.
Record types
1. The Record Type defaults to E (employee) when blank.
2. Record types B and BA do not display names or job titles in the chart boxes.
3. Chart boxes are built in ascending sequence by Box ID.
4. Job titles display in ascending sequence by Job ID within each box.
5. Each record in an OrgPublisher file represents a position in the chart.
6. Custom position record types should be defined in your text input file. Select Edit from
the menu bar, then Define from the pull-down menu to define Custom position record
types. The record type should include before and after brackets, for example <T>.
7. The input records may be in any order.
8. If Box IDs are the same for two records and they report to the same manager, they will
be placed in the same box.
9. Assistant boxes (record type BA) cannot have a reporting Assistant box.
10. Assistant boxes (record type BA) cannot have a reporting Partner box (record type P).
11. Boxes reporting to Assistant boxes (record type BA) cannot have reporting boxes.
12. Charts containing Succession Candidate (record type SC) contain no hierarchical
information.
Data files
1. Use the same text file name each time you export data from your database. The text file
name should match the template file (OTM) name and be located in the same directory
as the template file. OrgPublisher creates the OTM file when you save your chart.
2. An input text file that does not have a corresponding template file (OTM) will be
assigned a default template automatically by OrgPublisher.
3. Avoid naming your text data with the extension OCP. This is reserved for use by
OrgPublisher when publishing a file.
4. There should be no blank records at the end of the file.
5. When the AutoTitle feature is enabled, the top box title displayed in the chart is used
as the chart title.

Prepare Chart Data
Linking to Your Data Source
You must know how to link to your data source to create your chart, manage your data, and
resolve reporting relationship problems.
Your system administrator may need to provide some of the information required to connect
to your database. To share a database connection file with another user, you must use a file
DSN on a shared network path when you save the ODB file.
Use the New Chart Wizard to form an SQL statement that is used to extract data from your
database. You can also write your own SQL statement. For query samples, refer to the
Downloads section of the web site.
Once you have saved the file with your connection, you can reconnect to the same database
by opening the chart’s ODB file.
Selecting a Data Source
The New Chart Wizard helps you select the data source from which to create your org chart.
Note: If you are creating a succession planning chart, see the Mapping Succession
Planning Fields topic.
ODBC database - OrgPublisher establishes a direct connection to any ODBC - compliant
database, retains all connection and field mapping information.
XML - OrgPublisher matches data in the XML format to the OrgPublisher input fields. If
your XML data file contains an x-schema reference to the product schema, this reference
must point to the downloaded OrgPublisher schema or the OrgPublisher schema must be
copied to the directory containing your XML data file.
Text - OrgPublisher uses existing data in a comma-delimited text file for building an
organization chart.
Multiple data sources - OrgPublisher allows you to build a single chart from more than
one data source, choices include ODBC, XML, and Text.
Blank chart - This option allows you to open a blank chart to build your hierarchy
manually.
Extracting Your Data
Once you have established person-to-person, position-to-position, or department-todepartment relationships, you can begin building your charts automatically from data by
mapping data in your HR system to the OrgPublisher input fields.
1. Map the fields in your database that link managers to their direct reports or reporting
departments to managing departments to the following OrgPublisher input fields.
Input Field 1 - PARENT_BOX_ID
Input Field 2 - BOX_ID

Prepare Chart Data
You can map an Employee ID field from your database to BOX_ID and a Reports To (or
Supervisor ID) field to PARENT_BOX_ID. This creates an org chart where each person
appears in their own box.
2. Define each input record with a default or custom position type in Input Field 4 RECORD_TYPE.
If you leave the record type blank, all positions in the chart default to Employee
position types.
3. Map the employee name from your HR system to the Last Name, First Name, and Middle
Name fields in the OrgPublisher Input File Layout.
Note: If your database has only one field for the entire employee name, then map this
field to the Last Name field.
Each record can contain information about a person’s position or job title. If your
database does not store a key or code to identify each job title, you can map the job
title field in your employee database to both the Job ID field and the Job title field in
the Input File, or you can leave the Job ID field blank.
4. If you want to use multi-level peer display, you must define the level number in Field
18.
5. Map the rest of the fields according to the Input File Layout.
6. Save your comma-separated ASCII text file as an OCB, TXT, or CSV file.
7. Open your text file (example, MYCHART.OCB) in OrgPublisher.
Your org chart is displayed and ready for you to format. When you save the chart, your
formatting is stored in a separate template file with an OTM extension. When you reimport your data and open the chart, the styles and formatting remain unchanged.
Extracting Data into a Text File
Extract data into a comma-separated text file in the order required by the OrgPublisher
Input File. You can save the comma-separated text file in an ODBC -compliant database,
and then establish a database connection with OrgPublisher to reorder the data by selecting
the appropriate columns in the New Chart Wizard.
Note: If you are creating a succession planning chart, see the Mapping Succession
Planning Fields topic.
Creating a Custom XSLT File
As an alternative to downloading a valid XSLT file from the web site, you may want to
create a custom XSLT file that is valid for your data.
To implement your own schema for translating XML data to the OrgPublisher input format,
you will need to add the tag name and file name of your XSLT file to the XSLTFileList.xml
file. This file is usually located in your C:\Program Files\OrgPubX\TVXMLCon\XML
directory.
The following code samples are truncated to conform to this document’s margin settings.
When modifying this code make sure that there are no spaces inserted or this code may not
perform properly. If you have any questions about this process, please contact Support.

Creating an OCB File
You can create an OCB file for an existing chart in order to automatically build an org chart.
1. Open the database connection chart file (ODB) for the chart.
2. Click the Build Mode
button. A dialog opens stating that a text file will be
created to save your changes.
3. Click Yes. OrgPublisher automatically saves the file in the same directory with the same
name as the ODB file and a file extension of OCB.
4. Make changes to the org chart.
Any changes you make to the format are saved in the chart template file (OTM), which
means these formatting changes will also affect the original org chart (ODB).
5. Save your changes in the OCB file.
Note: If this is a chart file created as a succession planning chart, the file extension is
ODBX.
Data in an OCB file cannot be refreshed in the same way as a chart created from a database
connection (ODB file). You can reconnect to your database by opening the ODB file, and
then saving it with the same name as the OCB file.
You will lose any prior data changes in the OCB file. Alternatively, you can open the OCB file
and manually change the chart.

Identify a Broken Hierarchy
One of the most valuable features in OrgPublisher is the ability to track reporting
relationships. When you create your input file layout for your first chart and define your
relationship hierarchy, OrgPublisher remembers that hierarchy. OrgPublisher determines if
any of the established relationships are broken when you open your chart built from data.
The following is an example of the error message:
Figure 39.
You can copy the list and use it to correct your HR database and then update your chart.
File Types
OrgPublisher potentially creates several types of files that contain different information for
your chart.

Record Types
The record type is the position type of a person who works in your organization. A position
type can be used to categorize employees. Position types assist in the formatting of boxes
and text, and the calculations of various head counts within your organization. The position
type/record type determines the order of positions within a single box.
Each person or position in an org chart is represented by only one record in the input file,
but a person can occupy multiple positions and have multiple records. You can also create
your own record type to define a position within your organization using the Position Type
Wizard or the Define dialog.
If you leave the Record Type blank, OrgPublisher sets the position type to "Employee."
Do not use these characters when creating your own custom record type in field 4.

A manager record type represents a person who is the manager or supervisor of
the people in the reporting boxes or within an org box. Manager record types have
a Priority of 0. They are placed in their own box unless the Auto Build option, in
the Format dialog Chart tab, is set so that managers and employees are placed in
the same box. When there is more than one manager under a job title within a
box, the names are defaulted to sort alphabetically by last name.
This is the default record type. An employee record type represents a person who
is an employee within an org box. You can format employee names and boxes
separately from manager names and boxes. When there is more than one
employee name under a job title within a box, the names are defaulted to sort
alphabetically by last name.
An assistant record type represents a person who is displayed within an assistant
box type. Assistant boxes alternate right and left of the reporting line.
You can define custom assistant position types with data using the Define dialog,
accessed from the Edit menu option, by creating a new position type and selecting
the assistant box type.
An OrgPublisher org chart can include indirect reporting relationships as well as
direct reporting relationships. Indirect reporting relationships are also known as
dotted-line relationships.
An input record can indicate a person is an indirect report by using an “I” in the
Record Type field in front of the assigned position record type. Indirect is a
modifier of the assigned position type. For example, an IE is an employee who
reports indirectly to another position. If you use only I as your record type,
OrgPublisher defaults the record to IM.

When an indirect report appears as the top position in a box, the box is formatted
with a dotted-line box unless you change this default in the current chart style. In
addition, an indirect box has a dotted connecting line to the supervisor box above
it.
Indicating that one person reports to more than one manager is accomplished
with multiple records and use of position types.
One box must be designated position type "E" for Employee. Other boxes must be
designated position type "I" for Indirect Report. (Indirect Reports are not counted
for head count purposes. Indirect Report boxes are displayed with dotted lines
around the box, as well as the lines to the box.) When building from data, you
need multiple employee records — one for each manager (see sample of data
below).
If you are building from data the records should look like the following:
ParentBoxID BoxID
Box Title Record Type ID Last Name First Name
Manager1

A contractor record type represents a person who is a contractor within an org
box. Contractor record types are different from other position type records.
Contractors are always displayed after managers and employees within an org
box. Contractor names are formatted separately from other position types.
Contractors are not counted in the head count with the default settings. You can
override the default.
When there is more than one contractor under a job title within a box, the names
are defaulted to sort alphabetically by last name.
A partner record type represents a person in a partner box type and denotes a
side-by-side relationship. A partner box is located on the same level and to the
right of the box to which the partner is aligned.
A box record type reports to another record and may have records reporting to it.
A box record type can be used to create a report-to box that does not contain a
person or job title, for instance a department or division name. You cannot add
persons to a box with B record type.
An assistant box record type can be used to indicate there are assistants for the
report-to box, but names and job titles are not stored in the box, for instance a
department or division name that has an assistant. You cannot add persons to a
box with BA record type.
A staff function record type represents a person very much like an assistant, or a
cost center displayed in a staff function box. The staff function normally has boxes
reporting to it in the chart and is positioned opposite an assistant box on the
reporting line. Staff function record types have a Priority of 0, and are placed in
their own box.
A succession candidate record type represents a person who is a candidate for a
specific position currently being held by someone else. Succession candidate
record types have a Priority of 1, and are typically placed in a normal box type
with other candidates, as well as the current person holding the position they may
inherit.
Boxes and Position Types
Each box type has a designated position within the chart in relation to other box types. By
placing position types in specific box types it ensures that the position type appears in its
correct hierarchal position in the org chart.

What You Need to Know
When creating a chart
There are two ways you can build organizational charts in OrgPublisher:
Automatically
By connecting directly to a data source. You will need to know the path to that data.
OrgPublisher provides the ability to access data from multiple locations. Your IT
department should be able to provide you with this information.
Manually
By placing boxes on a chart and entering employee information into the boxes.
When building from data
You should have an understanding of how your company's reporting relationships work, the
layout of your company’s reporting relationships, and other HR data so that you can
properly map the data for OrgPublisher. It is also useful if you have experience in:

Querying a database.

Writing VBA scripts (for automating charting processes).

Adding and extracting data from a database.

Operating a Microsoft Windows spreadsheet application.
You should also familiarize yourself with the system requirements and parameters.

Create Charts Overview
Linking to Your Data Source
You must know how to link to your data source to create your chart, manage your data, and
resolve reporting relationship problems. Your system administrator may need to provide
some of the information required to connect to your database. To share a database
connection file with another user, you must use a file DSN on a shared network path when
you save the ODB file.
You can connect to an ODBC-compliant database and extract data for your organizational
chart. You can also connect to, or create, a text file to use as input for creating your chart.
Use the New Chart Wizard to select the data source, tables, etc. These selections form an
SQL statement that is used to extract data from your database. You can also write your
own SQL statement. For query samples, refer to the Downloads section of the web site.
Once you have saved the file with your connection, you can reconnect to the same database
by opening the chart’s ODB file.
Chart Window
When you start OrgPublisher and open a chart, the OrgPublisher window opens. It contains
a main menu and several toolbars, which you can turn off if you choose. The Style bar
which displays the current chart style at the top, the Status bar which displays the levels
shown and the head count for those levels at the bottom of the window, are always visible.
The main window section, called the Chart View, contains the chart components, such as
data and photos, arranged in boxes. The sample below includes telephone numbers,
departments and head counts. The Chart View is always displayed, regardless of how many
other views you select.
Figure 45.
You can move views, except for the Chart View, to display anywhere in your chart.

Drilling Through Chart Levels
If you want to display only a few levels within your chart, you can use the OrgPublisher
Drill-up/Drill-down
feature. You can set the number of levels that are displayed from
the Custom levels dialog on the toolbar or from the Style Wizard while creating a style for
your chart. This feature is available in both the OrgPublisher application and in a published
chart in a browser.
Drill-up
and drill-down
buttons are arrows that are placed above or beneath boxes
to indicate there are chart levels above or below them. Unless you change it, you move up
or down through the chart the number of levels shown in the Custom Levels dialog on the
toolbar. Changing the number of levels to drill up is useful when used with the Set Top of
Chart
feature. You can customize drill buttons to make your charts more cosmetically
appealing or to better match your corporate document style. You must show a minimum of
two custom levels.
Note: Drilling through a real-time chart automatically updates the chart.
Identifying Invalid Comma-separated File Format
When building from data or using API function definitions, found in the OrgPublisher
Software Development Kit (OPSDK):

Ensure that fields that contain a comma, such as last name, are enclosed in quotes.
Example:
Incorrect: ,Smith, Jr.,
Correct: ,"Smith, Jr.",

Ensure that fields do not contain any quote characters.
Example:
Incorrect: ,"Mc"Donald",
Correct: ,"Mc'Donald",

Ensure that there are no blank records at the end of the file. Word processors and
spreadsheets may inadvertently leave blank lines at the end of the file. The last
record in the file should be followed by the end of file marker.

Ensure that no single field is over 2000 characters in length.

Ensure that there are no less than 10 comma-separated fields in each input record.
Build and View Modes
Build Mode vs View Mode - If you are an administrator, you'll need to be aware of this.
OrgPublisher operates in either Build Mode
or View Mode
.
You use Build Mode to create, edit, and reorganize data. You use View Mode to format and
view charts as they will be seen by your users when published.
When building charts from data, remember that any editing of data or hierarchical structure
made using Build Mode will be lost when your chart is refreshed.

You cannot hide chart components while in Build Mode, but you can switch to View Mode at
any time. If you try to hide components while in Build Mode, OrgPublisher automatically
switches to View Mode.
Note: Build Mode features a Compact version so that you can view more of your chart
while you work on it. Click the Compact Build Mode button and OrgPublisher hides
everything in the chart boxes except the names. This way, you can drag and drop
boxes in the Build Mode without all the custom fields, job, or box titles taking up
screen space.
Planning charts are always in Build Mode, and do not reflect special formatting, such
as multi-level peer display, reports in the same box as their manager, or the Advanced
Box Layout settings.
The Compact Build Mode is not available to save as a style, but you can create a
similar chart style by hiding all your chart elements except the employee names.
Views
The user interface within OrgPublisher displays smaller windows called views.
Chart View
The Chart View is the main window and contains the chart components arranged in boxes,
as well as any enabled toolbars and views.
9 Box Matrix View
The 9 Box Matrix View
, providing comparative sets of data for select criteria, allows you
to compile the top performers and high potential employees in preparation for succession
planning. You can print this view or show where people from the Profile View fit in this view.
Hover Profile View
The Hover Profile View allows users to quickly view key custom fields just by letting the
cursor hover over a box component. The Hover Profile, if enabled, opens when you hover
the mouse button over a component in the chart box.
Tree View
The Tree View
arranges data hierarchy in an outline format. The Tree View, not
available in published thin client ECharts, arranges chart components in an outline format.
You can also locate and display any person or position in the chart by clicking on it in the
Tree View. You can print this view.

group feature is also available in this tab if the chart contains custom fields assigned to the
E-mail type.
The Search View also provides a My groups tab when the chart is published. This tab is
viewable only in the published chart. Once your org chart is published with the Search View,
end users can search for and save their own groups, which are displayed in the My groups
tab in the published chart.
Profile View
The Profile View
can provide employee, job, or box profiles containing information you
may not want to display in the chart box. Side-by-side Profiles can be used to build groups
in conjunction with the 9 Box Matrix or search results.

Data Preview
When creating a chart from data, OrgPublisher displays a Data preview dialog that allows
you to scan the first 100 records to verify you've selected the correct table, view, or query.
If the extracted records are correct, click Next to complete the New Chart Wizard.

Head counts and head count roll-ups

OrgPublisher provides two types of head counts in addition to a head count roll-up.
These features count position types that have the Count set to Yes. Head counts are
different from head count roll-ups, which are based on a counted position type or
total population for each manager, department, district, region, etc. You choose if
and where you want head count roll-ups displayed in your chart.
Total head count - The counted "filled" positions in an org chart, indirect
reports are normally not counted.
Total planned head count - The counted "filled" and "open" positions in an org
chart, indirect reports are normally not counted.
Head count Roll-up - A count of positions reporting to a specific manager or
area within an org chart.
Note: Orphan records and broken hierarchies can adversely affect summary and
security functions. Unexpected results can occur that may cause head count or other
totals to be incorrect.

Head counts are displayed in the Status bar at the bottom of the window. The
starting point of a head count is always based on the point in the chart that is
displayed. For example, if you have several departments within your organization
that are higher in the hierarchy than the Development department, but only the
Development department is displayed in the chart, the head counts shown in the
Status bar are based on the counts in the Development department on down.

Position types displayed in the Summary View in OrgPublisher Premier can be
excluded from the total head count, but included as an individual position type head
count. For example, you can exclude contractors from the total head count, but
insert a separate head count for contractors.
Note: In conditional formatting, the search feature and all calculations follow the
conditional position type. Formatting follows the group. If you display the Summary
View in a chart with conditional formatting, you should hide either the group or
position type of the conditional format. If you don't, head counts display in both areas.
Selecting a Database Table, View, or Query
When creating a chart from ODBC, you must select the table, view or query to extract data
from the database.
1. Follow the New Chart Wizard dialogs, selecting the ODBC option and navigating to your
ODBC database.
2. The dialog that opens next depends on the type of database you select. For example, if
you select an SQL database the next dialog may be a login screen for SQL. Click the
drop-down arrow and select from a list of tables, views, or queries.

button from the
toolbar.

assistant boxes will be inserted.
3. Click the mouse for each assistant you want to insert.

Adding Boxes Under an Assistant Box
You can add reports to an assistant box type just as you can to other boxes in the chart.
OrgPublisher displays these boxes vertically immediately below the assistant. Assistant
boxes dropped on an assistant box display like normal boxes and will not contain the special
assistant box formatting.
1. Click and release the Insert person/job button. (You can also use the Normal box
button.)
2. Move the mouse pointer over the assistant box title or job. Click the mouse. The new
box displays directly below the assistant box.
Note: You cannot add a Partner box to an Assistant box. If you have an Assistant box
that has several reporting boxes, you should consider identifying that box as a Staff
function box, rather than as an assistant. You can add several reporting boxes to an
Assistant box, but since they are all displayed directly below the assistant, more than
one or two boxes can make viewing your org chart difficult.
Only Staff Function position types can reside in a Staff Function box.

People are the employees, managers, and other personnel in your chart. One person is

manager is created. If you already have an employee position type in that box, OrgPublisher
displays both positions. When you drop a person on a job title, the person inherits the
characteristics of the job.
When you drop a person on another person, the new person inherits the existing person’s
job title, and the new person’s name is placed directly below the name of the existing
person.

will be inserted. Click the mouse.

Using the Multi-level Peer Display
OrgPublisher provides the option to display all reports at the same chart level or display
multiple levels. This option is a formatting function, displays in View Mode only, and can be
useful if you have, for instance, a Vice President and a manager reporting to the same box
and you want to show the hierarchy level of the two positions.
Note: The multi-level peer display does not work when your chart contains multiple
people in a box.
When building a chart with data, map your levels to the OrgPublisher Input File field 18.
Boxes reporting to an assistant will not have this functionality. You can also save the multilevel peer display as a separate style or use the menu or toolbar options to manually adjust
box levels.
Note: If you are working with a large chart that takes a little longer to open, you may
want to turn off the multi-level viewing. This will speed up the process. Select View
from the menu bar and clear Show multi-level peers option in the pull-down list.
Planning charts are always in Build Mode, and do not reflect special formatting, such as
multi-level peer display, reports in the same box as their manager, or the advanced box
layout settings.
To manually move a box up or down a level:
1. Select View from the Main menu and verify that Show multi-level peers in the pulldown list is selected.
2. Click View Mode
in the tool bar.
3. Highlight the name or job title of the box you want to move.
4. Click the Move up
or Move down
button. The box displays at the new level.
5. You can also select Edit from the Main menu then Move up a level or Move down a
level from the pull-down menu.
6. Save your chart.
Some things to note about the Multi-level Peer display feature:

Works in View Mode.

The top box cannot be moved.

The first level below the parent box does not move up because it is already at the
highest level in relation to the parent box.

If you move a parent box, all reporting boxes move with it.

Partners move with their attached boxes.

You can move (up or down) 10 levels in relation to a parent box.

email must be first in the custom field sequence order.
OrgPublisher does not change the value of numeric fields you import. For instance, if
you import 341.00, that's what the number is in OrgPublisher. If you import 341,
that's what OrgPublisher uses. Formatting cannot change the value of the data you
import.

Position Types
OrgPublisher provides standard position types in order to create your organizational
hierarchy. You can also create your own position types either to better match a position
within your company.
In addition, you can assign a group, based on a single attribute to create a conditional
position type. You can then use conditional formatting to increase visibility of that group in
your chart.

Note: It is recommended that you do not select a group that references secure fields
if you plan to publish a secure thin client EChart because you will receive undesirable
results.
The rich client EChart summary counts using conditional formatting show numbers
calculated as if all fields are visible to the end user. This is because EChart summaries
are calculated at publishing time and cannot be recalculated.

Assigning a Position ID Type
You can compare two charts that have identical custom field definitions, and generate a
change report. If you do not automatically import a position ID (see Field 17 in the Input
File Layout topic), in order to achieve consistent results, it is recommended that you assign
a custom field type of Position ID to a unique record number across all charts.
Note: If the charts you are comparing do not contain a Position ID type in field 17 or a
custom field position type, OrgPublisher uses the ID in field 5 from the Input File
Layout. If neither exist, an error message displays and the comparison does not occur.
In addition new or renamed custom fields will not match when comparing charts and will not
be included in the change report.

Position Types
Selecting a Position Type for Insert
The first time you open OrgPublisher, an employee position type is automatically assigned
to the first inserted box. After that, the default is the last position type assigned.
Note: You can also assign a position type using the Update Person dialog or define the
priority of a position type.
1. Select Insert from the Main menu then Select position type from the pull-down
menu. The Select Position Type for Insert dialog opens.
2. Choose a position type by clicking on it. A green check mark indicates the current
selected position type.
3. If you want to choose a position type to insert for each person you add to your chart,
select the Insert using this Position Type check box. OrgPublisher assigns each
subsequent person that position type.
4. If you want OrgPublisher to use the default position type, the last one inserted, select
the Automatically assign Position Type check box. This is the default when you first
open OrgPublisher and the Employee position type is selected.
5. Click OK to accept the changes and close the text box.
Changing a Person's Position Type
1. Double-click on the person’s name in the Chart View. The Update Person dialog opens.
2. Double-click the new Position type you want to use. The Update Person dialog closes
and the new position type is accepted. You can also select the new position type from
the list, then click OK.
The person in the box inherits the formatting of the new position type. In addition, the
ID field contains the unique ID information necessary to enable the use of multirelationship icons and EChart security.
Changing Direct Reports to Indirect Reports
Indicating that one person reports to more than one manager is accomplished with multiple
records and use of position types. One box must be designated position type "E" for
Employee. Other boxes must be designated position type "I" for indirect report. (Indirect
reports are not counted for head count purposes.) By default, OrgPublisher displays this
type of indirect relationship, or matrix reporting, as a dotted line box and connecting line in
the Chart View.
Indirect report boxes are displayed with dotted lines around the box, as well as the lines to
the report-to box.) When building from data, you need multiple employee records — one for
each manager (see sample of data below).
If you are building from data the records should look like the following:

Hotspot Links
Hotspot Links
Hotspots provide a way to create links in an org chart that is published and viewed with a
web browser, such as Internet Explorer. Any string that can be typed in an address line of a
browser can be used as a hotspot, such as mailto:, http://, file://, etc. Hotspots are a type
of custom field assigned to a specific position type, or all position types, and they appear in
listings with other custom fields.
You can create hotspots with the Hotspot Wizard, attach a hotspot to a specific custom field
using the Custom Field Properties dialog or use the Define dialog to define the URL path to
the link.

Setting a Base URL (Path)
The base URL is the common path or command string for all hotspots or photos in the chart.
To set up a base URL (path), you must store the hotspots or photos for your chart in the
same location.
OrgPublisher appends the base URL to the beginning of each link in your chart, which means
you do not have to type the complete path or string for each hotspot or photo. (At the same
time, you are supporting browsers that require fully qualified URLs.) For example:

If all the links in your chart are to e-mail addresses of people within your
organization, set up the base URL as mailto:. However, it is recommended that you
use the Custom Field Properties dialog to set an E-mail custom field type to create
your e-mail link.

If you have links to company documents or photos saved on a network drive, for
example the T drive, set up the base URL as file://servername/folder name/.

If these documents or photos are saved on your intranet, you might set up the base
URL as http://www.companysite.com /CompanyDocuments/.
Note: You must include the trailing forward slash (/) in the base URL.
You can set a base path that is unique for each custom field. This base path can be assigned
in the Hotspot Wizard or using the Attach Hotspot dialog accessed in the Custom Field
Properties dialog.
1. Open the Hotspot Wizard by clicking on the component where you want to place the
hotspot and select Tools in the Main menu then Hotspot Wizard from the options list.
You can also click on the Hotspot button

placed in the box. OrgPublisher automatically assigns this number, but you can
change it from the Define dialog.
Determines if the position type is counted in head counts. The default is Yes.
Determines the type of box that is inserted for this position type. Each box type has
a different position within the chart. For example, the first assistant box is placed
below and to the right of the box to which it reports. If there is more than one
assistant, the boxes alternate from right to left below the box to which it reports.
Values include:
Normal Box, Assistant Box, Partner Box, and Staff Function Box
To define a new position type:

Custom Field Wizard
The OrgPublisher Custom Field Wizard walks you through the process of manually creating
or modifying custom fields in your chart for your organization’s data.
Custom fields added below box titles contain information pertinent to the whole department
or team that the box represents. Custom fields added below a Job title contain information
about that job. Custom fields added below a person contain specific information about that
person or the position they hold.
Note: When working with planning charts, planners can modify any data fields
displayed in the Chart View. Data fields that you, the administrator, want to keep in
the chart but do not want modified, can be displayed in the Profile View. And since
planners cannot add or delete custom fields, you still maintain control over the custom
fields you decide to use in the chart.
To create or modify a custom field using the Custom Field Wizard:
Note: If you manually create a custom field and you do not update your HR database,
the next time your chart is refreshed, your data will overwrite your manual changes.
1. Select Tools from the Main menu then Custom field Wizard from the pull-down menu.
2. The first time you create a custom field for your chart, the dialog prompts you to select
the Type of custom field you want. For instance, select E-mail if you are setting up a
group e-mail list.
To display numeric information like sales and expenses in OrgPublisher Premier, you
insert numeric custom fields.
Click Next.
3. If custom fields already exist in your chart, select either the New Custom field or
Existing Custom field radio button. Click Next.
4. Type the Label, or name, for the custom field. Select the Hide label check box if you
do not want the label to display in the chart. Click Next.
5. Click on the Position Type to display the custom field in your chart, such as All
Positions or Manager. Select where you want to assign the field, box, job, or name.
Click Next.
6. Click Finish. The custom field displays in your chart.
When comparing charts, new or renamed custom fields will not match when comparing
charts and will not be included in the change report. In addition, if the charts you are
comparing do not contain a custom Position ID type, OrgPublisher uses the ID in field 5
from the Input File Layout. If neither exist, an error message displays and the comparison
does not occur.

those position types set as “counted” will be included in chart box head counts. Counts can
be displayed in both the chart and the Summary view.
Head counts and head count roll-ups
OrgPublisher provides two types of head counts in addition to a head count roll-up. These

are normally not counted.

Total planned head count - The counted "filled" and "open" positions in an org
chart, indirect reports are normally not counted.

Head count Roll-up - A count of positions reporting to a specific manager or area
within an org chart.
Head counts are displayed in the Status bar at the bottom of the window. The starting
point of a head count is always based on the top most point in the chart that is displayed
in the Chart View.
Position types displayed in the Summary View can be excluded from the total head
count, but included as an individual position type head count.
To insert a Head count:

rather than a global base path.

You can insert photos in your chart boxes in the Chart View or Profile View. You can also
insert graphics into your chart the same way as photos. The accepted file formats are GIF,

Before you insert any photos or graphics, you should:

directory, you can type the base URL or path for photos in the field, Base photo file
path or URL in the Photo Wizard, and it is saved for future photo insertions.

Set a default size for your photos. If you insert a photo that is larger than the chart
box, the box automatically widens to fit the photo. The width of a chart box is the
same for all boxes in the chart, which means that all of the boxes in the chart
change to the same width as the box with the photo.

Once you have moved all of your photos and graphics to the same directory and
have modified them to be the same size, run the Photo Wizard.

You can add an image to display in your chart next to the names of individuals belonging to
a selected group. You can use standard 16x16 and 32x32 pixel icons (.ico files).
Note: Conditional Formatting does not perform the same function in the org chart as
the display of group icons. In particular, if you want to show that an employee is a
member of more than one group, use the group icon feature.
Using group and multi-reporting relationship icons in conjunction with Conditional
Formatting is not recommended. These two features distinguish different aspects of
group information and are not meant to work together.

member of multiple groups, multiple icons display in the box. When you click on a group

Adding Multi-relationship Icons
You can use this feature for matrix reporting to indicate employees who report to more than
one supervisor. In order to do this, each employee must have a unique ID in the ID field of
the Update Person dialog. This file is "searchable" and, therefore, can be viewed by end
users. Do not use sensitive data in this field.
Using group and multi-reporting relationship icons in conjunction with Conditional
Formatting is not recommended. These two features distinguish different aspects of group
information and are not meant to work together.
Note: In the printed version of a book, matrix reporting is indicated by persons
appearing multiple times in the index, with a page number for each appearance. We
recommend that you format indirect relationships differently, such as with a dotted
line.
1. Verify that unique IDs exist for each employee. To open the Update Person dialog,
double-click on a person's name in the chart. If the ID field is empty, add the employee
ID.
If you build charts from data, you can choose to enter this information manually, as
stated above, but when your chart is refreshed, this information will be lost. If you want

standard, it is recommended that you create a backup of that style.
1. Select File from the Main menu then Styles from the pull-down menu. The Styles dialog
opens.
2. Select the existing style from the top-left pane that you want to backup then click New.
OrgPublisher copies the existing style features into the new style and a new record line
displays at the bottom of the list.
3. Select the text “Copy of X style” and type the name you want to use for the backup
style.
4. Add any notes, if appropriate, in the Notes area in the center of the dialog.
5. If you are working with a secure EChart, you can secure a style to a group by selecting
the group name from the drop-down list at the bottom of the dialog.
6. Click Close. The open style in your chart reflects the changes you have just made.
7. Select File from the Main menu then Save from the pull-down menu. You can also click
the Save button
in the toolbar.
Creating a Color Gradient and Style
OrgPublisher enables you to create a gradient color and style for your chart background. A
gradient is a gradual difference in lightness or darkness of a color. A good example is the
color matrix slide in the Color dialog.
1. Click Format in the Main menu then Chart from the pull-down list. The Chart tab of the
Format dialog opens.
2. In the right-hand pane, the Property column displays both a Gradient Color and
Gradient Style field. Click in the gradient color Value field to select a color for the
chart background gradient. You can also select Other to customize a background color.
3. In the Color dialog, you can select one of the Basic colors, then modify it by moving
your cursor within the color matrix and the color slide to adjust the Hue, Saturation,
and Luminosity. When you have the color you want, as shown in the Color/Solid box,
click Add to Custom Colors. Click OK to return to the Format dialog.
4. Click Apply to accept the change and continue working in the Format dialog or click OK
to accept the change and close the dialog.
5. Click in the gradient style Value field to select how you want the gradient to display in
the chart background. The black and gray tone images in the pull-down list enable you
to display the gradient darker colors on the top, left, horizontal middle, or center of the
chart. Click on the image that best illustrates what you want to display.

Summaries and Formulas
You can use summary fields in your chart to summarize numerical data for reports or whatif planning.
Note: In conditional formatting, the search feature and all calculations follow the
conditional position type. Formatting follows the group. If you display the Summary
View in a chart with conditional formatting, you should hide either the group or
position type of the conditional format. If you don't, head counts display in both
areas.
If there is more than one group-based position type for which a person qualifies, the
first match is used in Search and Summary tasks.
Formula fields allow users to define and populate a new, or existing, custom field based on

Creating Workforce Analysis Graphs
Workforce Analysis Graphs use Summary View data to create graphs visually depicting your
organization. There are 3 graph options: pie chart graph, horizontal bar chart graph, and
vertical bar chart graph. Just as Summary View data changes as you drill through the chart
levels, graph results also change.
When creating new charts, OrgPublisher automatically creates a default graph reflecting the
summary information. You can modify or delete this graph to suit your needs.
Graphs are displayed in published PluginX charts and EChart rich client and thin client. Thin
client charts display the graphs as GIF format below the Summary View. Graph properties
are not changeable in published charts, but may be copied to the clipboard. Graphs do not
display when publishing as PDF, HTML, or when sending output to Microsoft PowerPoint.
Note: Graph categories with a zero value do not appear in the graph. OrgPublisher
displays percentages in graphs with 2 decimal places.

Formulas
Formula fields allow users to define and populate a new, or existing, custom field based on
values provided in other custom fields or using other criteria. For example:

years of employment

days until an appraisal is due

percentage of sales quota met

new salary based on a percentage increase
OrgPublisher Premier supports formula fields by using the Windows Scripting Host to
process VBScript. The VBScript function references values in custom fields and produces
results in other custom fields.
Items to remember about using formulas:

Formulas are processed when the chart is opened and when closing the Custom Field
Properties dialog

Formulas are only processed by the OrgPublisher Premier application or OrgPublisher
Premier via Web Administration

Formulas do not refresh in response to a data edit or structure change

Formulas are not processed in any Planning charts

Formulas are not processed when a user opens a published chart. The chart shows
the data as calculated prior to publishing. This limitation only applies to formulas that

OrgPublisher offers several publishing options, as well as associated tasks.
Note: Web servers do not allow clients to schedule tasks. The OrgPublisher Web
Administration Server allows you to publish charts manually. You can, however, open
the desktop OrgPublisher version and schedule the publishing definition in the Publish
charts dialog using the Web Administration SourceCharts folder.
1. Log on the server as an administrator or power user.
2. Open the desktop OrgPublisher application. (If default install is used, the location is
c:/program files/orgpubx).
3. Open the chart (found in the SourceCharts folder).
4. Schedule the publishing definition in OrgPublisher using the Schedules tab.
Also, when you are publishing to ECharts, you must manually schedule the BAT file
created in the first manual publishing. To do this, open the Task Scheduler on the
server to add the .BAT job

Choosing Between Express and Advanced Mode Publishing
When publishing a chart in OrgPublisher, the Publishing Wizard lets you select Express Mode
or Advanced Mode. Your choice depends on your needs for a particular published chart and
its audience.
Express Mode enables you to quickly publish a chart in PluginX, directory view, or PDF.
You can type the chart name and choose a “publish to location” and immediately publish a
chart.
Advanced Mode walks you through each of the wizard dialogs, enabling extensive choices
for publishing format, enabling the publishing notification e-mail, selecting planning or
succession chart options, end users toolbar and button options, end user context menu
commands, allowing end user personalization, enabling visually impaired support, chart
security, publish to iPad, and more.
Choosing a Cross Browser Option
The Publishing Wizard allows you to publish an interactive chart which enables end users to
perform several tasks, such as conducting detailed searches and creating their own groups.
An org chart document provides fewer end user features.
Published chart features, including multiple viewing levels, chart searches, ad hoc groups,
Smart Links, or print preview, are not available when publishing to an org chart document.
Org chart documents are, however, cross-platform publishing options.
Cross Browser - When you choose this publishing format, you can publish a chart that is
viewable across all platforms. There are two cross browser options.

Thin client - This option is compatible with browser that support HTML and
JavaScript. The chart provides searching, drilling, and view options, but does not
provide a rich user experience.

Microsoft Silverlight - This option is compatible with all browsers that support
Silverlight. The chart provides searching, drilling, and view options in a rich user
experience, with the use of interactive features, such as animation.

Scheduling an EChart
You can schedule or reschedule an EChart to automatically publish using Microsoft Windows
Task Scheduler. Task Scheduler prompts you to provide a user ID and password, which
verify that you have the necessary access rights to run the scheduled task. You must be a
member of the local Administrators group on the computer executing the task.
The EChart .htm file must be closed in order to publish successfully. If it is open when you
attempt to publish the EChart, an error message displays stating that access is denied.
Simply close the file and publish again.
1. Publish your EChart, Rich Client or Thin Client, using the Publishing Wizard. This creates
a batch file.
2. Run the batch (BAT) file. This file assumes that publishing and server processing occur
on the same machine.
You can modify the batch file (BAT) produced by the Publishing Wizard in order to
publish to a location other than the web server. Doing this may minimize chart "down
time” if your chart is extremely large (200,000+ records) or if resources are limited on
the web server. EChart publishing is very CPU intensive and may affect other processes
running on the server.
The batch file must be modified after you publish, so that the following steps occur in
this order:
–
–
–
Move the EChart files to the server (if not publishing directly to the server).
Unload the EChart from the server’s memory.
Reload the EChart into the server’s memory.
Note: The batch file will not be overwritten during publishing, so any modifications
you make will be preserved.
3. Open the Microsoft Task Scheduler from the Control Panel in Windows 2000 and
Windows XP (or from My Computer in Windows NT).
4. Double-click Scheduled Tasks. The Scheduled Tasks window opens.
5. Double-click Add Scheduled Task and follow the wizard prompts to set up the batch
file as a scheduled task.

Configuring EChart Multiple User Selections
When publishing a secured EChart, there may be multiple occurrences of end user ID
records; for instance, an employee reports directly to a manager, but also participates in a
project team and, therefore, also has an indirect reporting relationship to the project leader.
When this occurs, the end user can select which occurrence to use when opening the chart.
You can choose which fields the end user can see when making the user ID record selection.
1. Click Options in the Main menu then EChart security options from the options list.
The EChart Multiple Instance User Configuration dialog opens.
2. Select the check box for each field you want the end user to see, such as Name of
user's manager, First name, Last name, Job Title, and more.
3. When you have finished your selections, click OK. The dialog closes.
When opening an EChart, end users are shown the Select User Instance dialog to choose
which instance to use when accessing the chart. The dialog states that the user ID is
assigned to multiple records in the chart and one of the displayed instances must be
chosen to view the chart. The information you select to display helps them make the
right decision.
Publishing in Graphic Format
A chart published as a graphic is in JPG format, which can be read by most browsers and
graphics programs.
1. Click the Publish button
in the toolbar. You can also select Tools from the
Main menu then Publishing Wizard from the options list. The Publishing Wizard opens.
2. Select the Advanced Mode radio button. Click Next. Click Next again at the brief
description dialog.
3. Type the Name of the published chart. It can be the same as the chart name and does
not need to include publishing information. The name must, however, be unique and
cannot contain any special characters such as slashes (\ or /), colons (:), asterisks (*),

Choosing PDF Font and Image Settings
When publishing your chart in PDF format or printing an EChart thin client chart,
OrgPublisher defaults to several settings. These include chart, paper, font and image
choices.
Font embedding and images can affect the size of the PDF file which, in turn, can affect the
response time.
Settings
Font Embedding
Printer Resolution
Description
OrgPublisher defaults to the Font Embedding check box.
Embedding fonts used in the creation of the chart into the published
PDF ensures that the end user sees the chart text just as it is in the
original chart.
If you have concerns about the size of the file (font embedding
significantly increases the file size) you can clear the option.
The default Printer Resolution is set to 600 DPI, but you can
select another option from 72 DPI to 1200 DPI.

Using a Virtual Directory
When you publish ECharts, cross browser Silverlight charts, real-time charts, or through
Web Administration, whether to a rich or thin client, you publish to the physical directory
but the reference to the chart (or web page) using HTTP must reference the virtual
directory, if your web server uses one. If not, use HTTP://mychart.htm in the URL field in
the Publishing Wizard.
Verify that the chart is published to a virtual directory with execute permissions. If you are
not sure of the structure of your web server, please contact your Web administrator.
Using the Publish Charts Dialog
The Publish charts dialog is enabled after you have published a chart or created a publishing
definition. You can also create new definitions and schedules, or update or delete existing
definitions and schedules. From this dialog, you can publish one or all of your definitions
and preview the chart before you actually publish it.
Note: Web servers do not allow clients to schedule tasks. The OrgPublisher Web
Administration Server allows you to publish charts manually. You can, however, open
the desktop OrgPublisher version and schedule the publishing definition in the Publish
charts dialog using the Web Administration SourceCharts folder.
-
Log on the server as an administrator or power user.
-
Open the desktop OrgPublisher application. (If default install is used, it would be in
c:/program files/orgpubx).
-
Open the chart (found in the SourceCharts folder).
-
Schedule the publishing definition in OrgPublisher using the Schedules tab.
Also, when you are publishing to ECharts, you must manually schedule the BAT file
created in the first manual publishing. To do this, open the Task Scheduler on the
server to add the .BAT job.
The Publish charts dialog contains three tabs.
Publishing Definitions tab
The Publishing Definitions tab of the Publish charts dialog provides the same elements as
the Publishing Wizard and is available as soon as you have created a definition or published
a chart.
Buttons enable you to create New, and Update or Delete existing publishing definitions.
Buttons are also available to, Publish a chart definition or Publish All definitions. You can
also Browse to the publishing location you want to use.
Fields in the Publishing Definitions tab are:

Definition
The name you set up for the chart publishing definition.
The box title chosen to be the “top of chart” for this published chart.
The style selected for the published chart.

Copying a Hyperlink to a Person
With OrgPublisher you can copy the link to a person in the published chart if you publish to

message, and send the e-mail to a supervisor who should review information in this
person's chart box. The supervisor clicks on the link and the chart opens at that person's
location in the chart.
Note: If the link is pasted into Microsoft Word or an e-mail, and the published chart is
accessed through the file system, such as C:/Program Files
(x86)/OrgPub10/Web/OPDev.htm, the target box is not located. The link will,
instead, open at the top of the chart.
Copying a link feature works as designed when the published chart is accessed
through HTTP, even if pasted into a Microsoft Word document or an e-mail.

Updating Your Chart
You can update chart data after you have created your organizational chart by refreshing
the chart data with changes made to the database. If your chart was created from multiple
data sources, you can also manage data sources through the Tools menu.

browser or by drilling through the chart.
You may want to change chart data in the OCB file to reflect personnel changes that have
not yet been applied to your HR database. When you overwrite or manually update a chart
that was created with a database connection, an OCB file is created.
Refreshing Chart Data
OrgPublisher updates your chart built from data every time you open that chart. You can
also keep the data in your org chart up-to-date while you are working in your chart. The
following steps explain how to do this manually. Detailed information about automating this
process can be found in the OrgPublisher System Development Kit (OPSDK) .
1. Open the ODB file for the chart you want to update. Your database connections are
automatically reestablished and your org chart is displayed.
2. Select Data from the Main menu then Refresh from the pull-down menu. Any changes

2. Select the Wall chart preview or Book style preview radio button. The Print Preview
dialog opens.
3. Select a box by clicking on it. The box is highlighted.
4. Holding down the mouse cursor, move the box to where you want it on the page.
Note: Note that the connecting line moves with the box. Because OrgPublisher is not a
drawing tool, you do not want to move the box across from or above its manager box
because the reporting line draws through it.
If you select the top box in a hierarchy, all reporting boxes move as well. Remember
these basic rules when moving boxes:
-
Vertical lines move with the boxes.
-
The boxes at the either end of a row must stay at the end because the corners of
the horizontal and vertical lines which link these boxes are "owned" by the boxes.
-
Unexpected results occur if you move boxes outside of the OrgPublisher
hierarchical drawing standards.
These standards assure that an OrgPublisher chart can be viewed without written
explanation and be understood anywhere in the world.
5. Release the box by moving the cursor to a blank space on the page and click.
6. You can reverse that change by clicking the Undo
button.
7. Select Print if you want to open the Print Wizard to print the chart or Close Print
Preview without printing.
Previewing a Book Style Chart
You can preview charts before printing them to check how the chart fits on the pages. The
Chart View is the only view you can preview.
Note: If you choose to print a chart legend in your org chart, it does not display in the
Book Style Print Preview. It does, however, print.

Web Administration
Web Administration
There are some things to remember when you work with Web Administration.

The Web Administration Server chart design templates work if the web
administration server (remotserver.dll) and the OrgPub32.exe installed on the
server are both the current version. If one of these pieces has not been updated,
OrgPublisher cannot pull the data it needs and a blank list of quick formats appears
in the dialog.

There is no option to Set a Default Template option when using Web
Administration (thin client publishing format) because setting the template on the
server sets the same default template for all chart administrators' charts.

With the Web Administration server, all archived charts are automatically created in
the server ArchivedCharts folder. In addition, if end users must access archived
charts, they must be stored in the SourceCharts folder.

Web Administration supports opening multiple data base charts (OCB, CSV) as long
as those files exist in the SourceCharts folder. Web Administration, however, does
not support creating multiple data source charts from these file types. Nor does it
support editing the text file charts using the Data sources dialog.
Unless otherwise indicated, procedures throughout this document pertain to Web
Administration.

Web Administration
Creating Alternate Destination Directories
When using OrgPublisher Web Administration Server, all charts default to the
PublishedCharts folder. For security purposes, you may want to publish a chart to a
different URL. In that case, you can use this procedure for securing DLLs by publishing some
charts to different URLs. You can redirect the DLL by defining alternate destinations in the
INI file.
1. Create an INI file with the name RemoteServer.ini on the web server.
2. Use the standard INI file format to add a section named [PublishFolders].
3. Add an item in this section to describe each publishing destination directory in the
following format.
http://DestinationUrl=c:\inetpub\wwwroot\MyFolder
4. When you publish your chart using the Publishing Wizard the dialog containing the field
Publish to location will display a combo box. Select one of the alternate publishing
URLs and complete the publishing process.
Entering a New License Key Using Web
Administration
If you, as a server administrator for Web Administration, request a license upgrade or a trial
extension of OrgPublisher, a new license key is provided by your sales associate.
1. When you receive the new key, a server administrator must log into the server and
locate the installation folder. (If you use default paths, it is c:/program files/orgpub11.)
2. Run the OrgPub32.exe file in that root folder to open OrgPublisher and select Help in the
Main menu.
3. Select License Information from the options list. The Licensing Information dialog opens,
showing your license number and all features currently enabled, as well as your Position
Count and expiration date, if applicable.
4. Click Enter new key. The License Key Entry dialog opens.
5. Copy the provided key from your e-mail message and click Paste Key. The license key
displays in the Please enter a license field.
6. Type your company name in the Registered Company field. Click OK to accept the new
key.
7. Reset IIS to activate the key in the registry by restating the remote administrator
server.
If an error message displays stating you have entered invalid information, click the Back
button and verify that the license key and company name are correct and retry.
Note: Only the OrgPublisher administrator, logged into the server, can successfully
enter a license key on the computer where OrgPublisher resides. The new license
information is read when the remote administration server starts, after IIS is
refreshed.

published EChart link. Click on the link to open the published chart.
You can also republish a chart in Web Administration.
Note: Web servers do not allow clients to schedule tasks. The OrgPublisher Web
Administration Server allows you to publish charts manually. You can, however, open
the desktop OrgPublisher version and schedule the publishing definition in the Publish
charts dialog using the Web Administration SourceCharts folder.
-
Log on the server as an administrator or power user.
-
Open the desktop OrgPublisher application. (If default install is used, it would be in
c:/program files/orgpubx).
-
Open the chart (found in the SourceCharts folder).
-
Schedule the publishing definition in OrgPublisher using the Schedules tab.
Also, when you are publishing to ECharts, you must manually schedule the BAT file
created in the first manual publishing. To do this, open the Task Scheduler on the
server to add the .BAT job.
Scheduling a Publishing Task Using Web
Administration
If you are publishing a chart through Web Administration, the Schedule Now option is not
available in the Publishing Wizard. The following steps would be used in Web Administration.
1. Log onto the server as an administrator.
2. Open the desktop OrgPublisher application. (The default installation uses the in
c:/program files/orgpubx folder.)
3. Open the chart (found in the SourceCharts folder).
4. Schedule the publishing definition in OrgPublisher using the Schedules tab per following
instructions.
When you are publishing to ECharts, you must manually schedule the .BAT file created
in the first manual publishing. To do this, open the Task Scheduler on the server to add
the .BAT job.
Using a Virtual Directory
When you publish ECharts (desktop OrgPublisher or Web Administration), whether to a rich
client or thin client, or when you publish a real-time chart, you publish to the physical
directory but the reference to the chart (or web page) using HTTP must reference the virtual
directory, if your web server uses one. If not, use HTTP://mychart.htm in the URL field in
the Publishing Wizard.
Verify that the chart is published to a virtual directory with execute permissions. If you are
not sure of the structure of your web server, please contact your Web administrator.

Web Administration Troubleshooting Tips
In order to use OrgPublisher Web Administration, you must configure IIS, where you can
experience connection and authentication errors. This topic provides tips on some of the
most common problems seen. Contact the Support team can help you resolve these and
other issues.

If you get an Internet Explorer window with a grey bar at the top but no chart, set
the MIME type of .OCP on the publishedcharts folder.

If you receive the error, “Unable to contact the remote server.dll at this URL,” This
indicates the paths to the virtual directory and URL were, likely, not entered correctly
when installed, or the permissions are not set. This may require reinstalling the
application, per the installation guide.

Chart administrator or end users get a blank IE screen with a red X in the upper left
corner indicates a problem installing and registering the ActiveX control. Installing
ActiveX controls requires administrative rights on the PC. Your IT group can request
MSI scripts to assist in pushing out the plugins. Please contact Support if you require
a script.

Addressing Warnings and Error Messages
Message 1
Too few fields in record #, Abort file read?
The Messages option under the Options menu must be checked for this message to
appear. The message is caused by having less than 10 fields in any record within the Input
File. The number of the records in error is displayed in the message.
Message 2
# records read. Do you wish to continue?
The Messages option under the Options menu must be checked for this message to
appear. This message allows you to stop OrgPublisher reading the Input File at a certain
record limit. The following setting determines the number of records read each time before
this warning is displayed:
[Settings]
warn after=1000
This setting can only be changed by manually editing the OrgPublisher registry settings. The
default setting is to warn after every 200,000 records are read.
Message 3
Warning!
Chart is too wide to be displayed correctly. Please alter the chart style and/or
reduce the width and spacing of boxes.
This message occurs if the width of the chart to be displayed is larger than 30,000
characters across.
To resolve this problem, try changing the chart style by selecting Format from the menu
bar, then Chart from the pull-down menu, and then choose a more compact chart layout in
the Format dialog.
In addition, try reducing the character width of boxes and the horizontal spacing between
boxes. Setting the overall chart font to a smaller font such as Arial 6 point, using the Font
tab of the Format dialog will also reduce the chart width. Using the Drill-up/Drill-down
features in OrgPublisher can also solve this problem because it limits the number of
organizations levels displayed at any one time. As a last resort, break up your org chart into
smaller, more manageable charts.

This message is displayed when OrgPublisher is unable to locate a required OLE2 file on

During the OrgPublisher setup process OLE2 files are copied to the Windows System
directory. Check that these files have been installed. Try rebooting your PC and then
reinstalling OrgPublisher.
If your PC is connected to a network, ensure that you are able to write to the Windows
System directory. If you do not have the necessary network access, request that your
networking group install the product for you.
Message 5
Failed to allocate space for objectName.
OrgPublisher has run out of available memory. Close OrgPublisher and all other programs.
Restart OrgPublisher and open the org chart again. Also, try restarting Windows before
running OrgPublisher. If the situation persists, try adding more memory to your PC or
reduce the size of your org chart.
Message 6
Warning! The maximum number of organization levels has been exceeded.
The org chart has exceeded 499 levels. This may be caused by an invalid reporting
hierarchy.
Please e-mail Customer Support if you suspect your data is correct.
Automatic Publishing Tips

Schedule the jobs to run when the fewest number of users may look at the chart, for
example, the middle of the night. Verify that it is not at the same time that system
backups are running, as those jobs can have files “locked” that are required to run
the publishing job.

If you schedule separate jobs, verify that you allocate enough time between the jobs
so the first job is finished running OrgPublisher before the second one starts.

It is best not to use file names longer than 8 characters. Some versions of the
Microsoft Task Scheduler may not handle those file names consistently. If you do use
file names with more than 8 characters, and you have other files in the same path
with only 8 character names, the wrong file may be used for the job.

Do not use special characters or spaces in file names.
Identifying a Broken Hierarchy
One of OrgPublisher’s most valuable features is the ability to track reporting relationships.
When you create your input file layout for your first chart and define your relationship
hierarchy, OrgPublisher remembers that hierarchy.

Troubleshooting
OrgPublisher determines if any of the established relationships are broken when you open
your chart built from data. For instance, if a manager should leave your company, and is
deleted from your database, and if the records for the employees who reported to that
manager are not changed to reflect a new reporting relationship, OrgPublisher generates an
error report listing those broken hierarchies.
The following is an example of the error message:
Figure 312.
You can copy the list and use it to correct your HR database and then update your chart.
Identifying Invalid Comma-separated File Format
When building from data or using API function definitions, found in the OrgPublisher
Software Development Kit (OPSDK):

Ensure that fields that contain a comma, such as last name, are enclosed in quotes.
Example:
Incorrect: ,Smith, Jr.,
Correct: ,"Smith, Jr.",

Ensure that fields do not contain any quote characters.
Example:
Incorrect: ,"Mc"Donald",
Correct: ,"Mc'Donald",

Ensure that there are no blank records at the end of the file. Word processors and
spreadsheets may inadvertently leave blank lines at the end of the file. The last
record in the file should be followed by the end of file marker.

Ensure that no single field is over 2000 characters in length.

Ensure that there are no less than 10 comma-separated fields in each input record.

Resolving Reporting Relationship Problems
If you open a chart that contains incomplete or invalid reporting relationships, the Errors
Found in Data dialog opens when you open your chart. This dialog displays the incomplete

for Parent Box ID, Box ID, Box title, Record type, ID, Last name, First name, and
more for each error record.
Note: The records listed from your input file, and any boxes reporting to these
records, will not display in your org chart. Review the records listed to determine the
problem.
1. If you want to quickly open the chart without resolving the relationship problems, you
can select the "top of chart" record, for instance the CEO or president box, to display
your chart with only the valid records. This represents an incomplete organization.

The only valid record in the Errors Found in Data dialog that can display a blank
Parent Box ID field is the "top of chart" box, usually the CEO or President of the
company, because that box does not report to another box.

Select a record of, for instance, a Manager to display all the boxes that report to
that box. However, this closes the Errors Found in Data dialog and does not resolve
the reporting relationship problem.

You may see records listed in this dialog that display a Parent Box ID. This
suggests that the actual record for that box is not in your database, or the Box ID is
invalid.

You may see records listed in the dialog that display a blank Parent Box ID field.
This suggests that these records in your database are incomplete, with no parent box
ID recorded.
2. To assist you in resolving errors in your source data, select the records in the list and
click Copy list to clipboard.
3. Open a Windows application, such as Microsoft Word or Excel.
4. Press Ctrl+V or click the Paste
button in the toolbar to paste the records. Either save
this document or print it so that you can research the invalid data and correct your HR
database.
5. Close your chart and correct your database. Once your HR database is corrected, reopen
your org chart. The missing records now display and the Errors Found in Data dialog
does not open if all records have been corrected.
Note: If the Messages option is cleared in OrgPublisher Options menu list, the Errors
Found in Data dialog does not open even though you may have reporting relationship
problems.
Once you have corrected your data, you can turn off messages in order to increase
your processing time.

Troubleshooting Automatic Publishing
If you are experiencing problems with automatic publishing using the Publish charts dialog,
check to ensure that:

You have local Administrator group privileges on Windows® XP, Windows® 2003
web server, or Windows® 2008 web server. These privileges are required in order to
set up or run a job automatically.

Microsoft Task Scheduler is installed. This is a Microsoft program, usually installed as
a component of Microsoft Internet Explorer.

you are not using letter-mapped drives for automatic publishing (e.g.,
G:\NetworkPath\FileName). In some cases they are not recognized when running
jobs off-line. Instead, use UNC to specify network paths (e.g.,
\\ServerName\Path\Filename).
Error messages can be generated in two different log files:

Look for the log in the c:\program files\OrgPub(x)\OPAutoPub.log. (The (X) is
the version number of your OrgPublisher installation, for example, OrgPub9.) Find
the date and time the job was supposed to run, and check for any error messages.

Check the message log for the Microsoft Task Scheduler by clicking Advanced then
View Log. Look for errors, such as "file not found" or "password not valid," based on
date and time the job should have run.
Diagnosing Common Problems
Did the job ever run before?
Yes, the job has run before.
To isolate the problem:
1. Determine whether or not the job ever kicked off (look at Task Scheduler and the job
itself) by checking the Last Run Time column.
2. Look in the published chart output folder to determine if the output chart files were
actually updated. In the case of a PluginX chart, verify the time and date stamp on the
OCP file. For EChart Rich or Thin client charts, verify the time and date stamp on the
OCS file. If the EChart OCS file shows the correct time and date stamp, it may mean the
server memory did not unload and load as specified in the BAT file. This may require a
restart of the Default Web Site.
3. The log files should indicate if a file was not found or a "Pub_Def" was not found. The
logs may also show a permission problem.
Any of the problems listed above may be as a result of one of the following:

OrgPublisher cannot open on a machine at the same time a job is scheduled to run
on it.

If the scheduled task fails, check if any OrgPub32 processes are running. Hold down
the Alt + Ctrl + Delete keys simultaneously. Then click Task Manager. Under the
Process tab, check if OrgPub32 is active. If it is, select it and click End Task. The
scheduled job will not start if you have one of these processes already running.

OrgPublisher 11.7 User Guide
11.7 Sortable Columns in Errors Found in Data dialog
Occasionally, when a job fails, it can leave one process running, depending on which
part of the job fails.

If you schedule a job and occasionally it does not run, but has run previously, try
stopping the Task Scheduler service and restarting it.
Note: We recommend only one version of OrgPublisher be installed on a PC. When
there are multiple versions, and you open from a scheduled task, the last used version
is opened. This can cause unexpected results. (This can also cause problems with
synchronization of PluginX versions.)
No, the job has never run automatically.

Does the chart run manually (using the OrgPublisher application), but not from the
Task Scheduler?
When running the Task Scheduler, you actually run under different privileges than when you
work on the PC or server normally. The following permissions are required:

To Set Up a Scheduled Job to Run, you must have Administrator privileges on
Microsoft Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

The user ID you are using to run the job must be in the Administrative Group of the
LOCAL COMPUTER.

In Windows 2000 or Windows XP, verify the User is in the Administrative Group,
click Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer
Management/Local Users/Group/Administrators.

If your job is on an IIS Server, the DCOM Default Access permissions must be
configured using the program DCOMCNFG.EXE. Click Start/Run and type
DCOMCNFG.EXE to execute the program. Choose the Default Security tab, and edit
the default settings for the Default Access permissions. Add the Local
Administrators group to the list of access permissions.
Other considerations that may affect automatic publishing:

How was the chart published? If you published with EChart Rich or Thin client
options, you must run the BAT file created in the first, manual publishing of the
chart. For all other publishing options, you can use the Scheduling dialog from the
Publishing Wizard to set up the job.

Use UNC paths, not letter mapped drives because Scheduled Jobs run under a
different type of user that does not use the same profile. Letter mapped drives are
not available when running off line, and you receive errors such as "File not found"
or ”r;Pub_Def not found.” A UNC path looks something like
//servername/share/folder/filename.

If you are using a regular workstation to automate the publishing rather than a
server, you can log on two different ways, to the local machine or to the domain.
(Typically, these jobs are run on a server rather than a workstation because the PC
must be powered on – even though you are logged off.) For example, you can be
USERIDA or you could be DOMAIN/USERIDA. (See your logon window when you log
on to the PC.)

You may see the following error message if Task Scheduler is not installed,
"OrgPublisher AutoPub requires the installation of Task Scheduler. Contact your
system administrator." Some older operating systems may not install Task

Scheduler. You can verify this by selecting Start/Find and typing Mstask.exe to
look for this application on your C: drive. If it is not there, Task Scheduler is not
installed. This may also be the problem if you do not see the Schedule dialog in the
Publishing Wizard.
Check the scheduled jobs:

Check jobs under Task Scheduler by using Windows Explorer. Go to My Computer.
Under this list you should see Scheduled Tasks. (In Windows 2000, this appears
under My Computer/Control Panel.) Click Scheduled Tasks, and verify that your
job is there. Click on the job name, and determine if there are any problems with
any of the settings.

Right-click on the job name and click Properties. Verify the UserID and Password,
or change them.

Right-click on the job, and click Run to run the job while it runs under the Task
Scheduler. It may help to put the AS OF date and time in the title of the chart for
testing purposes. Verify that this worked by navigating to the output file and
checking the date and time stamp of the OCP file (PluginX ) or the OCS (EChart Rich
or Thin client).

If an error message in one of the log files indicates that a file or Pub_Def was not
found, this may indicate that the job cannot find the source file (ODB or OCB) that
contains the publishing definition. Open the Task Scheduler (Version 7 and later),
and right-click on Properties for the job name. You should see Run As.
–
The pointer to open the OrgPublisher application is located within the first set
of quotes, and it should point to your installation.
–
The second set of quotes contains the path to your source file that gets
opened to publish from. That file contains the publishing definition. Then you should
see /Pub_PublishingDefName.
–
Letter mapped drives in the source file path can be a problem. "Tildes" are
sometimes put in long file names and, in cases where you have other files in the
same path with the same first 8 characters, there may be problems pointing to the
correct file. Either change the job name to a shorter name, or replace the name in
the Run As command with the full long name removing tilde (~) characters.

If your OrgPublisher version is earlier than version 7, you must check the registry
settings for the parameters of the Run As job. The Support team is glad to assist
you with checking registry settings if you are unfamiliar with the process.

Click on Start/Run then type Regedit. Click
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Timevision/OrgPublisher/Schedule. Your
jobs should be listed. Determine if there are any problems with values in the job.
There is a ”r;Text file ” value that should be the source file name (the file that gets
opened to publish the chart from). The Destination is the output file path and name.
You can modify either of these in the registry to spell out the full long file name if
tilde (~) characters are used, or you can modify the path.
Note: If you contact Support, please send the following information:
- Error Log Messages
- Operating System and OrgPublisher Versions
- The publishing method for the chart, such as, EChart Rich, EChart Thin, PluginX, etc.

Did you select the FTP option? If you experience problems such as:

the Schedule Status tab’s Status field reads Never Published or it is blank, or

if Microsoft Task Scheduler indicates that the publishing job ran, but your chart is not
published or updated you can use the Troubleshooting Automatic Publishing
procedure.
Troubleshooting Automatic Publishing procedure
1. In the Publish charts dialog, in the Schedule Status tab, click View log. The
OrgPub32.LOG opens in Microsoft Notepad. You can use this as a diagnostic tool by
reviewing the schedule information.
2. If you see the Never published message after you have scheduled a chart to publish,
you are probably still working in that org chart in OrgPublisher. Update your schedule to
a new publishing time and close the chart.
3. If Task Scheduler indicates that your publishing job ran but your chart is not published
or updated, or you can publish charts while you are logged on but they do not publish
while you are logged off, there may be a conflict with Microsoft IIS. Open the Task
Manager and click the Processes tab. If OrgPub32.exe is still running, this may be an
indication that an IIS conflict exists.
If you installed OrgPublisher on an IIS server to automatically update charts, you may need
to alter your default Distributed COM (DCOM) settings to allow authentication from any user
in the local Administrators group. Note that changes to the default security settings can
alter other permissions.
IIS alters the default DCOM security access settings, adding its own set of permissions that
allow external access by users to Internet pages, thus changing the default security
template and excluding permissions previously set up. An administrator must add the local
Administrators group to the default security access list in the DCOMCNFG.EXE utility.
To add the local Administrator group to DCOMCNFG.EXE
1. Execute DCOMCNFG.EXE, usually found in the Windows system directory.
2. Select the Security tab.
3. Click Edit Default for the Default Access Permissions dialog.
4. Click Add.
5. Browse the local computer and select the local Administrators group.
6. Click Add.
7. Click OK.
When next you schedule a chart to publish while you are logged out, it should publish
successfully.
If you are using FTP, you must have authority to write to the target server directory. The
FTP server authority must be set to recursive to allow you to put the file in a directory you
create. Otherwise, it will place your files in the server’s root directory.

Troubleshooting Tips for Published ECharts
If you are experiencing problems with published ECharts, these tips may answer your
questions.
Thin client charts with photos published via Web Administration
Check with your system administrator to discuss the following.

Photos will not display on a secure URL (https).

The network requires photos be handled by the LocalSystem account. The IUSR
does not have access to the LocalSystem Temporary Internet Files to read
cached photos. This can be changed by granting the IUSR read access to the
Temporary Internet Files.

The LocalSystem home directory is C:\Documents and Settings\LocalSystem.
The administrator can right-click on this folder and select Properties and Grant
IUSR_MACHINENAME Read access only to the directory.

In addition, the virtual directory must be set to run applications in the IIS process.
The virtual directory property Application Protection should be set to Low.

Windows XP, under Tools>Options>View, the administrator can select Show
hidden files and folders.

Changing the IIS user to be a privileged user is not recommended.
Refresh or display troubleshooting

If your EChart does not open, you may get the error message Unable to contact
the EChart server at ..., verify that the virtual directory where the EChart files
reside has execute permissions.

If you generated the chart by a scheduled batch file, verify that you are not using
letter-mapped drives. For example, use \\MyServer\path\filename.

Check your output file name in the publishing definition and remove any spaces or
special characters in the output file name and any spaces in the definition name.

Run the three separate batch file commands individually on the command line and
verify the results. The data should be unloading and reloading each time you publish.

Look for generated errors in Task Scheduler>Advanced>View Log.

Check the c:\Program Files\OrgPubX directory for the ORGPUB32.log to review
any errors that may have been generated at publishing.

Verify that the chart administrator has authority to write to all folders in the
tree/path to the directory if you can't find a log. Go to Windows Explorer and rightclick on the appropriate folder. Select Properties then the Security tab. Select the
name to view the permissions.

Verify the time and date stamp on the output file coincide with the time you
published the chart.

Stop and restart Microsoft IIS through the Control Panel>Administrative
Tools>Services>World Wide Web Publishing Service. Right-click on Restart.


Verify that there are no ORGPUB32 hung instances by looking in the Task Manager.
There must be no OrgPub32 processes running before the next one can start.

Reboot your server.
Print troubleshooting
If you want to override the print default of 5,000 records, you can manually adjust the
registry setting in the client's machine registry.

Select Start>Run>regedit and locate
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Aquire>OrgPublisherX>Publish.
Change the EChartPrintLimit record to the number you want to print. This becomes
the new default print limit for ECharts.

We recommend printing from within the OrgPublisher application on a PC with the
capacity to handle very large charts. Printing enormous ECharts from the browser
downloads all of the "person" data to the client machine. The network will experience
a great deal of traffic and use much, if not all, of the RAM on the client machine.
If the above tips do not resolve your issue, please contact Support.
