Need to understand what Reused Count is in reports from DNG to MS-Word

Vani B (1391273) | asked Apr 22 '21, 3:14 a.m.

Tried generating a MS-Word document(create and print microsoft word document(include attributes/include titles for inserted artifacts/embedded artifacts behavior/Module layout-Book) from module view) from DNG for a review from a changeset attached to GC personal stream and saw some artifacts had a new attribute "Reused Count". We don't have that attribute in our Type system for DNG, so suspect it may be a system attribute, but have been unable to track down details on it from IBM sites also.

"Reused Count" in the Word output will tell you in how many modules the artifact is used (if you include "Used in Modules" column in DNG). printModuleBook uses views data source and hence the fields shown in the output are dynamic, depending on the columns selected in the view. For every column in the view, the column name (dataSource/headers/name) and value (dataSource/artifact/fields/field/value) are included in the output.

 Hello Vani,

Are you referring to "Comment Count" attribute?
Yes, it is RPE geenrated attribute.

Best regards,

Hi Vani,

This attribute is system defined as you mentioned and it is showing you the amount of modules in which is the artifact reused. If you dont want to generate it in your Word document, check if you have attribute called "Used in Modules" in your view before generating it. If yes, remove the attribute from view.

I hope that my assumption helps.

Kind Regards.
