Creating Pipeline, Valve, and Other Reports

Engineering drawings often accompany reports, such as a bill of materials or parts list. One of the best features in Visio Professional is its ability to generate reports of all kinds based on the data stored with your drawing. For P&IDs and PFDs in particular, Visio includes several built-in reports that you can run to create components lists based on the custom properties stored with process engineering shapes. If you’re working with one of the other engineering templates, the built-in report definitions probably don’t apply to your diagram type. However, you can create your own report definitions that include the information you want.

For details about reports, see “Defining a Custom Report,” page 194.
