[Solved]HIDE THE COLUMN IF C0LUMN TOTAL EQ 0
Hi,
I have a scenario in which I have cloumns A,B,C,D,E and F. E and F are Compute Fields (E=A-B and F=C-D). some times E would be zero and some time F would be zero. For example if E=10 and F=0 then my output should print A, B, C, D and E only, F should not be printed because it's zero.

Can Please look into this and let me know.

Thanks,
Kims

Edit option S for your computed field will suppress printing the contents of the field when it is zero. It will not prevent the printing of the column itself.
COMPUTE FIELD/I6S
Will not print the zero value, but you'll still have the column (and title).

Thank You very much.


Actually I am looking like if the data is zero for that column then entire column should be hidden or no print. if there is a data then it should print that column.

Thanks,
kims

Kims,

If you will do a search on the forum for HIDE COLUMN - you will find several techniques you can try.


In Focus since 1993. WebFOCUS 7.7.03 Win 2003
One technique is use of the setting..
The option HIDENULLACRS which is meant to suppress ACROSS 0 collumns could work if you HOLD the result and report from the HOLD

SUM A B C D COMPUTE F=..,G=...
ACROSS field HIDENULLACR
ON TABLE HOLD
END
Table file hold
now write the report...

This or a variation may work...


Release 7.6.9
Windows
HTML
On thinking about a way to do this.. it appears that the only way is via two passes of the data.
The first to sum up the collumns and HOLD the result. The second to drop any zero column in the HOLD file from the final report.
Something like..
Table file 1
sum A B C D E F
ON TABLE HOLD
END
-READ HOLD &A/8 &B/8 &c etc (check syntax)
-IF &A EQ 0 then ' ' else ' FIELDA ;
-IF &B EQ 0 .....
...
Table file 1
SUM &A &B ...
BY ...
...


Release 7.6.9
Windows
HTML
Such simple logic is flawed,

ROW A
1 0
2 1
3 -1
Tot 0

You have to use a DEFINE ON the input data and set 0 if 0 and 1 if not 0

i.e. A0/I5 = IF A EQ 0 THEN 0 ELSE 1;

table file xxx
SUM A0 etc.
Thank You all for your suggestions. This issue has been solved.


Thanks,
Kims

prod: WF 7.6.10 platform Windows,
databases: msSQL2000, msSQL2005, RMS, Oracle, Sybase,IE7
test: WF 7.6.10 on the same platform and databases,IE7

I have used supress column format (D20S) for the fiield which I would like to hide if the entire column(all the values in that column eq 0). This will supress the column if the value is zero, for Title I have done formating using background color. This will not hide the cloumn but the column would be blank.

Thanks,
kims
