let's say we have a drill down type report and in the first column there are 2 entries
- online sales
- off line sales

the next column has regions
- north
- east
- south
- west

If I click on "south" in the online category, the result shows the data from south for online, but the screen gives no reminder that it represents only online sales (vs. offline)

I did some research both here and in the manuals but have not figured out how to modify the headers or add a new header. It is a plain OLAP enabled report listing which fields should be drill down.

hints, tips, chapter numbers, etc, welcome and appreciated

thank you

Richard

Richard,

You could try using fieldname spot markers in the headings or amper variables.

Richard,

Make sure you are passing "BOTH" in your drill.

Let's say Online/Offline are N1, AREA is N2, and, N2 is the drill:

  
TYPE=DATA,
     COLUMN=N2,
     FOCEXEC=app/program.fex(COL1=N1 AREA=N2),
$


Hope this helps...

Tom
