Report Field Changes Log

This document includes all changes to report fields. This will include:

  • Removed Fields

  • Fields that have been renamed

  • Moved Fields

Although we would never like to move fields, it is some times a requirement for us to do it. For this reason, we recommend that if you are building tools to make use of PICS reports, you do not rely on column numbers directly. Whenever possible, you should write your tool in such a way that it first scans row 1 looking for the column header you desire and then use this as the column number.

Coming Soon
