Description: The SPM – COC Report returns Chain of Custody (COC) data exports based on data from the SPM COC Manager.


Installation Instructions: This report requires a licensed SPM and the SPM Schema applied to the database. For SPM usage, no additional steps are necessary. For Enterprise use, this report should be published to the database. When publishing the report, the assembly should be stored in the database. The report will be available for selection once it has been published.


Overview: The report uses a Microsoft Excel template (XLS or XLSM) to generate an XLS or XLSM output file. A template example file (COC_Template.xls) can be found in the SPM install folder under the COC Template subfolder. The Excel template can be customized to add logos, hide or show columns, and much more, as detailed later in this article. Refer to the Import COC Template for COC Report article for information on how to add a template.


Note: Microsoft Excel does not allow an XLSX file type to have an internal macro code, which the template has, and thus is not an available file type.
