New Blog Post: RESTful Reporting

Intercalated detail lines

edited April 2016 in General
I need to generate a text report with intercalated values (lines) from detail band,
grouped each 3 details.

See the example below:

D11 <--+ Group Header
PE |
A2 <--+

1912A0601120009<1000000> <--- Detail 1 / Record 1
1912A0601120137<2000000> <--- Detail 2 / Record 2
1912A0601120265<3000000> <--- Detail 3 / Record 3
1912A0600970009<CAL HIDRATADA CH-1> <--- Detail 1 / Record 1
1912A0600970137<CAL HIDRATADA CH-2> <--- Detail 2 / Record 2
1912A0600970265<CAL HIDRATADA CH-3> <--- Detail 3 / Record 3

Q0001 <--+ Group Footer
E <--+

From each 3 records (Detail band), I need a Header and a Footer.

What's the best way to do this?
Using D7 with RB 15.05

    Hi Laercio,

    We are going to need more information about your data and exactly how
    you would like your report to appear. For instance, are you using a
    single dataset? Which field is the report grouped on? A sample of your
    data may be helpful as well.

    If you need a separate header and footer for each set of records, I
    suggest using a Master-Detail report with subreports. See the main
    reports demo for examples of creating reports like this.

    Also see the following article on data traversal fundamentals.

    Hi Nico,

    Problem solved!

    I was just trying to emulate 3 columns label report, but writting lines on vertical, to
    export this as a report text file.

    I solved this by using a memo control on Summary band.

    Anyway, thank you for your help.
