Tech Tip: SmartAnalyzer, Tagging Fields

Smart Analyzer Ribbon
A majority of the SmartAnalyzer apps have tags. If you simply select TAGGING without first selecting an individual test – all tags are displayed. Start with SELECT & RUN from the SmartAnalyzer ribbon.
Define Tags Dialog Box

If you select DEFINE TAGS with a set of tests (like General Ledger) selected, then only tags for that set of tests are displayed. Note that after tagging fields for a group of tests, you can SAVE your tags. The file created is saved in OTHER.ILB of your current project.
