I have created a report that has some busy text in the header / subhead area.
I want to display a title "...FEE" over the columns and have a border (box) wrapped around it.

You know the old:

TYPE=TABHEADING,
OBJECT=TEXT,
 BORDER-TOP=LIGHT,
 BORDER-TOP-STYLE=DOUBLE,
 BORDER-COLOR='BLACK',
 BORDER-BOTTOM=LIGHT, 
 BORDER-BOTTOM-STYLE=DOUBLE,
 BORDER-LEFT=LIGHT,
 BORDER-RIGHT=LIGHT,
 BORDER-LEFT-STYLE=DOUBLE,
 BORDER-RIGHT-STYLE=DOUBLE, 
$ 


Then I want to display 3 section titles across the report sort of like this:

ON TABLE SUBHEAD
"INTCH/OTHER FEE SUMMARY"
"The base rate is:<CARD1 <+0> <CARD2 <+0> <CARD3"


I'm not getting the results I want, as the "The base rate" text is displaying
under the title "...FEE", INSIDE the border (box).

How can I get the TITLE "...FEE" to display in the border box and the
"The base rate" text display underneath it ?????

Thank you!

Skip the next line, then, I want to display 3 section titles across the report sort of like this:

Can you post a repro with one of the sample files ?

What is the output format of the report.

Tom,
I couldn't find a way to style a border for a specific line in a heading.
I then tried to demote the second line of your TABHEADING to a SUBHEAD. Here is what I came up with (I'll try to play around with the idea a bit more):
  
DEFINE FILE CAR
SP/A1=' ';
END
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
     CAR.BODY.DEALER_COST AS ''
     CAR.BODY.RETAIL_COST AS ''
     CAR.BODY.SALES AS ''
BY  SP NOPRINT
BY  CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY AS ''

ON SP SUBHEAD
"The base rate is<TOT.DEALER_COST<TOT.RETAIL_COST<TOT.SALES"
" "
"COUNTRY<+0>DEALER COST<+0>RETAIL COST<+0>SALES"
ON TABLE SUBHEAD
"INTCH/OTHER FEE SUMMARY"
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
ON TABLE SET ASNAMES ON
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML

My previous example was a bit quick and didn't take into account the possibility of a report with more than 1 page. Following is a further example.
Of course it would be much easier if WF allowed border per line of HEAD be it HEADING, TABHEADING or SUBHEAD...
  
DEFINE FILE CAR
SP/A1=' ';
END
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
     CAR.BODY.DEALER_COST AS ''
     CAR.BODY.RETAIL_COST AS ''
     CAR.BODY.SALES AS ''
	 COMPUTE LL/I5=LAST LL + 1; NOPRINT
BY  SP NOPRINT
BY  CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY AS ''
BY CAR AS ''
ON COUNTRY PAGE-BREAK

ON SP SUBHEAD
"The base rate is<+0> <TOT.DEALER_COST<TOT.RETAIL_COST<TOT.SALES"
" "
"COUNTRY<+0>CAR<+0>DEALER COST<+0>RETAIL COST<+0>SALES"
" "
HEADING
"COUNTRY<+0>CAR<+0>DEALER COST<+0>RETAIL COST<+0>SALES"

Hi Daniel, I have tried your 2nd
example and I don't understand the expression:

   
COMPUTE LL/I5=LAST LL + 1; NOPRINT


And I am getting error from it.

Thank you!

Hi Tom,
quote:
COMPUTE LL/I5=LAST LL + 1; NOPRINT


The COMPUTE numbers the lines of the report. It is used in order to prevent the HEADING to appear on the first page, since it is replaced by the SUBHEAD.
The SUBHEAD appears only once because it is linked to the DEFINEd field SP which doesn't change value throughout the report and it is used to show the "second line" of the TABHEADING out of the borders.
A bit convoluted, maybe, but it gets the work done, which goes to show that there is always a way with WebFOCUS.

You say you get an error.
What is the error?
Did you enter the COMPUTE within the scope of a PRINT/SUM verb?

Is something like this what you are looking for?

INTCH/OTHER FEE SUMMARY
The base rate is: 1.11 2.22 3.33
 
COUNTRY CAR DEALER_COST RETAIL_COST SALES

JAPAN DATSUN 2,626 3,139 43000
TOYOTA 2,886 3,339 35030
W GERMANY AUDI 5,063 5,970 7800

Here is the code:

Hallway,
Your solution is elegant.
However, I have an issue with mixing HTML and WF. In my view one should be able to do everything with the code. I know there are some shortcomings which force one to be creative but this should be a signal to IBI to provide features. Using Tom's example, "border" should be accessible for any item in all headings.

What Hallway is doing is quite valid, its just css, and could be done with CSSURL setting

I agree that it is valid. It's just that I would prefer WF to do the trick on it's own.

It can be done in PDF with OBJECT=BOX, just not HTML unless its the whole TABHEADING with BORDER=ON

I agree that there are many GREAT tools that WF does provide, and that there probably should be a WF solution for this. This would probably be a good NFR (New Feature Request).

However, there is SO MUCH MORE that you can do with basic HTML, CSS and JS. Not to mention so many more resources on the web to help in these. Fortunately, IBI recognizes this and gives us the tools, like HTMLFORM, JSURL and CSSURL (as Waz mentioned), to be able to use these basic (and sometimes complex) web development tools.

So, I ask... Why go to a buffet, and only eat the mashed potatoes?
