  • Report Header Missing In Do/Until loop

    I have a short program that measures 3 features and reports them out N number of times, where N is selected by the operator. I have a print command in the loop so that it prints a new report PDF each iteration with auto-index. Only report #1 has the header info, all the others are just the dimensions. Is this something that can be changed? The intent was to have each report be cosmetically identical with only the values changing. TIA

      I'm running 2018r2, I'm not getting this popup when i right click, is it a version mismatch?

      Make sure you're not right clicking just anywhere. You have to be below your results. Put your mouse where you see a little popup that says "TextReportObject1" then right click

    or add this below your print command block before your logic test to loop back

    REPORT/LABEL, FILENAME= FILE_HEADER.LBL

      I've had inconsistent results with this. Sometimes there's no header, sometimes there's two headers and once in a while it works. PCD typical.

        Create a file header with nothing in it (call it File_Header_Blank), create a generic header with report commands and variables. Sit back and watch money print.
        Code:
                                                   Company Name Here.
                                                      CMM REPORT
        
        
        Serial Number: 1
        Work Order: 1234567890
        Part Number: Part name
        Part Description: FILTER BLOCK
        Part Revision: D
        Date : 2/9/2018
        Time : 12:56:46 PM
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        **blank space
        **report start
        i archive all data in RTF format. When someone (including myself) makes a typo on a work traveler (or whatever you can imagine) you can easily write VBS code in WORD to correct typos on the header. One small example... you can also text search more information in windows file explorer, etc.

        Won't ever worry about those pesky (but eye catchy!) headers (or any other colorful report if you're using text mode).
