Maximo Users have asked if there is a field in the database that can be used to report the actual tool cost on a Work Order? This question is based on the fact that several of the View Costs, or other report-type dialogs in Maximo applications do not get data from persistent fields.
There are a number of fields in the Maximo database that store costing data for Work Orders. Maximo Users or Administrators may need to create a report which includes a display of what the actual tool cost is on a Work Order. It may not be immediately apparent to the User which field(s) to use for this purpose.
The field which reflects the actual tool cost for the Work Order is TOOLTRANS.LINECOST.
