I have decided to use FRB to create all my reports inside my app. I find it
much more flexible than just using Clarion's report procedures.
However, it is the context parameters for the report to work properly that made
me write this post. By this I mean the variables that provide range or filters
for the report, for example, a Sales Report has to ask for a range of dates, and
So let's say I create a report for my client that prints the Sales by Client
(report 1). I could easily just copy that report and make it print the Sales by
Product (report 2), Agent (report 3), etc. My approach is to use as less hard
code as possible, so the question is: once I create reports 2 and 3 (on my
client's site, using FRB), how to set (somehow) the values for the dates
(range). Crystal Reports has this tool to use Parameters, and everytime the
report is called, CR itself prompts for those values.
I hope I explained it right because right now it is a thought, but I would
definitely like to make it work.
Thank you in advance.
