MP2 2000 display issue
Registered Member This is an issue with older versions of MP2. Try closing all other MP2 windows. It sounds like your associate is adding Work completion / progress data, try using the Quick Work order update module. Here you enter the Work Order number, rather than scrolling up and down searching. You can enter labor, parts and comments on this screen. A low cost barcode scanner will eliminate the need to enter the WO No. Alternatively in the Work order module use MP2's search function to find the work order... [ more ]

REASON FOR FAILURE CODES
Registered Member I thought the reason for failure codes is to report and collect data to enable failure analysis. [ more ]
Registered Member I don't think it is necessary to split them if the CMMS can allow updating them once entered before closure of WO or if they are to be entered after Work completion at site i.e. during technical completion in CMMS. Duplicate work order can be avoided by using the same and right tag no. [ more ]

Help with Mp2 parts receiving!
Registered Member I have updated this solution. You can now print receive labels from MP2 with as few as 2 mouse clicks. No new software is required. If you require bar codes, ask your IT department to install bar code fonts on your MP2 PC. regards, Donal Fleming. flemingtechnical.com 678-777-9015 df@flemingtechnical.com [ more ]
Registered Member I recently developed a solution for this problem. The client requires one label for every part except for large quantities, like the o-rings you mentioned. This solution requires Crystal Reports. After receiving the items, the user switches over to Crystal Reports and prints labels for all items received “recently”, normally in the previous minute. This interval can be changed, in case the user has been interrupted. There is an option to set the maximum number of labels to be printed. You... [ more ]
Registered Member When I receive parts, MP2 automatically fills in the quantity and number of labels. There are times you have to change the quantities, but all the part numbers are there. See attached. There may be something in your purchasing set up that needs to be changed. As for the labels, go into reports, inventory, item labels. Open the receiver labels, and you can modify and change settings there. Hope this helps. [ more ]

Unable to print work orders in MP2 - Win2K Version
Registered Member We have the same problem with our MP2/Access 2000 running on windows server 2003. This is while trying to print from the server. Other users can print the work orders just fine from their client installations. Have a difficult time understanding how the server isn't finding a connection to the database. [ more ]

Load Sample Database
Registered Member Ok, now I see how the problems came. So have to delete the sample data one by one? [ more ]
Registered Member Older version of MP2 used to include a separate training environment. The newer versions on MP2 (SQL) do not include a separate training environment. The training data is appended to your live data with no batch removal tool included. [ more ]
Registered Member isn't there a training region where you can do whatever you want without affecting the actual database? To delete the sample database, ca you not select a number of them and then click delete but can still be seen in there? Or do you really need to delete one by one? [ more ]

Datastream mp2 Access 2000 question
Registered Member Would that cause the printer option in the toolbar to be greyed out as well? [ more ]

Very old Datastream MP2 (Access version), how to change default data directory??
Registered Member Thank you anyway...we don't have a support contract so I'm on my own. I can leave it as is but if I can successfully change it so much the better. I'll try again sometime soon going through the registry again etc.. I also looked to see if anything got placed into a user profile etc. but that yielded no results. Thank you, Tom [ more ]
Registered Member To be honest it looks like your doing everything correctly. I don't think anyone is going to be able to help you without digging into the issue more and probably remoting into your setup. [ more ]

error message when opening MP2 PO module
Registered Member You should check the line items on the PO, not just the POHEADER info. If that doesn't work you will most likely need to analyze your database to find the corrupted record. This can be a time consuming process. [ more ]

How do you include comments made on a previous PM when generating/printing new pms?

Registered Member Documenting a bearing replacement as part of a PM makes it difficult to track. MP2 does not have a way of automatically referring to a previous work order. A suggestion: Issue a separate work order to inspect the bearing and replace, if necessary. The Scheduled start date can be one month in the future. Set the WO status to Hold. When the scheduled Start date is reached, if the bearing does not warrant replacement, the work order can be updated and rescheduled. Work around methods to achieve... [ more ]

Select the work orders with task that have been assigned to a specific company
Registered Member Dear Daniele, It is move advisable to create a User Defined Grid rather than a dataspy.It can be designed to suit your requirements. Please feel free to discuss me on ajith.shinde@bwir.com. Thanks & Regards, Ajit Shinde Sr. Consultant www.bwir.com [ more ]
Registered Member Hello, This query is possible. But you need to write a little code on the Advanced tab of the dataspy. But, I don't really understand what you mean about tasks assigned to companies. If you want to give me a call, I might be able to walk you through the tables / fields you need to query. What version of the software are you running? Forms or EWS? Oracle or SQL Server? Steve 804-337-6464 [ more ]

can't receive items
Registered Member Just in case someone else happens upon this issue. Looks like when I archived the records it started the autonumber counter over again(dunno why) And when I archived the previous records, they weren't deleted like they should have been. The 158 error meant that I would have broken the autonumber rules on the issrec table. Went in, took out the old records, and it's working fine again. [ more ]
Registered Member that's what I was worried about. I appreciate your help! [ more ]
Registered Member Did you perform a backup? It sounds like the process of archiving has left the database corrupted. The easiest solution for you would be to just restore the database to before you performed the archive. You could always try using the restore option if you didn't take a backup and restore all of the old archived data then see if it works. [ more ]

MP2 Barcodes
Registered Member Crystal Reports is on sale from SAP Americas with a $100 discount - down to $395 per named user license. You can use Crystal Reports to print bar code labels without MP2's bar code module. In addition you can produce maintenance management reports which are a substantial improvement over the canned MP2 reports. To purchase Crystal Reports go to SAP Americas website: http://store.businessobjects.c...&productID=100546100 (note: this link will bring you to SAP's website, I am not connected... [ more ]
Registered Member Donal, Thanks for confirming that you would need to use another program with training to print barcodes without the module in MP2. I also agree that a USB barcode scanner is a much cheaper option if you don't want to go mobile with your barcode solution. I have used these before. http://www.waspbarcode.com/scanners/ [ more ]
Registered Member Jonantan, There are several methods of printing labels: Crystal Reports is preferred. Other ways include Microsoft Access. Excel, Word's Mail Merge are slower, more cumbersome alternatives. The pre-programmed scanner interfaces directly with MP2. Simple plug the scanner into a spare USB port, open MP2 and start scanning. The total cost is comparable with the annual, recurring costs for Infor's solution. Performance is perhaps faster. Regards, Donal df@flemingtechnical.com ... [ more ]

Cannot attach file
Registered Member I have a seperate server for MP2 Sql. I have a document folder on that server that I have all of the attachments in. When I reference the attachment, I use the IP of the server and than all are able to see the info. I have 9 seats and the program is on over 100 PCs all networked. Using a mapped drive letter to attach the document did not work as all of the PCs do not have a mappign to the server, just the database. [ more ]

Problem with Thrust ball bearing....
Registered Member It would be unwise to assume that all thrust bearings have a contact angle of 90-degrees. I did work on a small hydro turbine thrust bearing, and the Demod spectrum showed harmonics of 0.5xSS. Subsequent repairs confirmed my bearing fault diagnosis. There are many situations where different faults can have the same vibration frequencies. One must be able to analyze all data to identify the correct or most likely fault. Walt [ more ]
Registered Member In typical bearing, the cage travels at a speed of FTF with respect to the outer ring, and (1-FTF) with respect to the outer ring. I never stopped to think about it, but it makes sense that FTF = 0.5 order for all 90 degree contact thrust bearings.....because the pitch diameter of both races is the same, so ball must travel the same speed relative to each race.... the only way to do this is if they travel one half revolution (with respect to stationary outer race) per shaft revolution, which... [ more ]
Registered Member Walt is correct. You should post this in the regular vibration forum. http://maintenanceforums.com/e...s/a/frm/f/3751089011 Usually, detection of being faults are not always dependent upon the fundamental, but more on harmonics (even if equal multiplies of running speed) and floor noise around the harmonics. Bearing defects are basically easy to reconize, especially after an analyst develops a pattern reconization skill of analysis. If you think you have a bearing "fault", post the data for... [ more ]

cannot check-out inventory
Registered Member Here is the path for MP2 6.1 SQL, Professional: E:\Help\Professional There you will find the following manuals: -Add On -Quick Start -System Administration -User Guide* *I recommend purchasing the Essentials training guide. It's much more helpful than the user guide. [ more ]
Registered Member I’m sorry to hear that everyone who had training is no longer there. Here are some ideas to help with this issue: 1) We offer 2-hour online training sessions and I’m certain that you will feel satisfied with the training, if not relieved, by having someone walk you through the software and sharing MP2 tips and tricks with you. No travel is involved. Training occurs online with a live MP2 expert. 2) We send out MP2 tips of the month and a quarterly newsletter. If you would like to stay in the... [ more ]

Registered Member I recommend the TLP 2844, I have used it in countless MP2 implementations.

You can buy one here if interested. http://www.cmmsdatagroup.com/m...ory-17-Printers.aspx [ more ]
