To modify well groupings, you, or someone with administrative access to your LOWIS server, would need to go onto the server and run the LOWIS Admin application.
In LOWIS Admin, if you expand the Configuration section you should see a Navigator tab. If you select this tab it will display the Well Groupings. You can also select the other tabs to see the Well Conditions and Columns for well information shown in the LOWIS client navigator.
If you want to add a new grouping, you can right click on any white space in the Well Groupings and select New Group.
If you want to add a new item to an existing group, you can right click on the group and select New Item.
Or, you can select and existing item and select Clone to make a new item copying the fields from that existing item.
You can also select Properties if you want to modify an existing group. Any of these selections will open up a new window with three fields, the Title to be displayed in the LOWIS Client, the Primary Table which should almost always be left as MASTERWL, and the Filter you want to apply to the well list when this grouping is selected.
As noted above, you should generally set the Primary Table as MASTERWL – which is the primary well list in the database. For creating a Filter, if you want to restrict by a specific field, you can look at the Info for that field in the LOWIS Client by right clicking on it on a grid. As an example, Group 1 Name is “FNAME” in the database:
For example, if you want to create a group where you only list wells with a specific group 1 name “Testing” your filter should have the following:
You can use AND or OR to write more complex statements, such as if you want to list all wells with a Group 1 name of Testing or Drilling.
When you are done making changes, make sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the Well Grouping window:
All changes are temporary until you hit Save. If you wish to undo your current changes you can click Reload and it will restore what was previously saved.
