  • custom report

    version 4.2

    I want to send 12345 to my custom report.
    The custom report is very simple, just one text box.

    CS1 =REPORT/CUSTOM, FILENAME= CR1, AUTOPRINT=PDF,Section=-1
    PARAM/TEXT1.TEXT=12345
    PARAM/=
    ENDCUSTOM/

    Problem is the text box text does not get updated.
    Any ideas?

        I want to be able to create a custom report and place the text where ever I choose. The example is very simple, but the report I will genereate could be very elaborate...many text boxes all over the report. So what I need to do is the following, get information into a text box on a custom report. Thanks for the help.

          You need to follow the example in 4.2 help file for using a form filler linked to a text box.

          The process is much to detailed for discussion in a forum. The help tutorial is first class and should get you on your way very well.

              You may have uncovered a bug in the release build. Try putting the 12345 inside quotation marks and see if that does anything.

              If that doesn't work, you should probably use the report expression approach instead. To do that, assign the data you want to send to the report into a variable, like this:

              ASSIGN/V1="12345"

              Then in the text object but in this report expression as the text:

              = VARIABLE("V1")

              Save the custom report.

              When you execute your part program the text object should contain the correct value. However note that refreshing/redrawing the report may cause these values to revert to 0.
