If your organization uses the PS (Project System) module then chances are the configuration changes documented below should be applied to your Gold Client configuration. The improvements made will help Gold Client exports include Settlement documents, Controlling documents, and Timesheets. We have also added the ability to include Planned Orders. See the instructions and screen captures below for deploying these same changes to your configuration that have been added to our standard.

UPDATE: this topic was updated as of April 20, 2016; the specific changes involved these two data type links: PP - OPERATIONS to LINK - OBJECT TO CONTROLLING DOC, and PS - WBS ELEMENTS to LINK - OBJECT TO CONTROLLING DOC. The reason for the change was to improve optimization when exporting data from these data types. The screen capture below shows that an index is readily available for table COEP which uses fields LEDNR and OBJNR. Our previous configuration only contained OBJNR but now includes LEDNR as well. See the relevant screen captures below to see how our config appears now.
