New Blog Post: RESTful Reporting

Lookup code

edited August 2002 in End User
I have a table which has a code field in it. I would like in the report
to print the meaning of the code, not the code, which is in another
table. I know how to do the grouping, not the look up information. How
would I go about this?

Table 1

Name address city code

Table 2

code description


Code Description
Name address city

Code Description
Name address city

Thank you,

    Lookups can be handled using a master detail report. Please take a look at
    the master detail section of the Developer'sGuide pdf in your RBuilder
    installation. You will need to create a detail dataset linked to the master
    dataset. Connect this new detail datapipeline to the subreport and place
    the subreport in the detail band of the main report.
