Working with Pipeline Records : Adding a Pipeline Maintenance Record

Adding a Pipeline Maintenance Record
Use the Maintenance grid in Edit ROW Detail to add a maintenance record for a pipeline selected in the Select ROWs window. Adding pipeline maintenance records allows you to examine the effectiveness of a maintenance program. You can either view data in the maintenance grid of Edit ROW Detail or run a ROW maintenance report.
To add a pipeline maintenance record, follow these steps:
Click the Select ROWs button to open the Select ROWs window (Figure 4-12). Select one or more pipeline segments you want to work with by clicking the check box for each pipeline segment. Then click Save to close the window.
Open Edit ROW Detail. Click Data Entry > Edit ROW Detail (Figure 4-18).
If you want to collapse the Selected ROWs panel to view more of the grid, click the Selected ROWs bar. Clicking the bar again expands the panel.
Click the Maintenance tab to open the Maintenance grid (Figure 4-18).
