New Blog Post: PDF/A and Metadata

Possible bug, or, my missuse...

edited September 2016 in General
Hi Team,
In order to put a line number on each detail row of a report I have added a Calc variable at the start of the row.

In the Calc Tab I have defined the Variable as "Value :=Detail.Count; ".

I note on the Properties it starts at 0. No biggie.

When I preview the report I get the following sequence...
0
2
3
4
5
And the resta re in sequence up to the last record.

Ummm. What happened to row 1?

Regards,
Ian

    Hi Ian,

    To number rows use try using the DBCalc component set to dcCount. Optionally
    leave the datafield unassigned.

    Hi Nard,

    Cheers, that works fine. Much simpler.

    Is there an issue with the way I did it and the resultant sequence generated?

    Hi Ian,

    To use Variable, set DataType to dtInteger. In the OnCalc code

    Value := Value = 1;


    The timing of the Variable.OnCalc is such that it using Detail.Count does
    not work.
