[CASE-OPENED] Compound excel 2007 report, multiple worksheets
Hi,

It is imperative for the report we are creating to use multiple worksheets in one excel file. We managed to create it using exl2k but were planning to use exl07. The info I have found about this issue is that exl07 does not support some of the features available in exl2k ( here ) but in the online doc I see some differences ( here ). Is there any real news about the features available for exl07 since the forum discussion I have mencioned?

Here is an example of exl2k:
TABLE FILE GGSALES
SUM UNITS/D12C DOLLARS/D12CM
BY CATEGORY
BY PRODUCT
WHERE REGION EQ 'Midwest'
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K OPEN
ON TABLE SET BYDISPLAY ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=REPORT, FONT=ARIAL,SIZE=9,$
TYPE=HEADING, SIZE=12,$
TYPE=TITLE, BACKCOLOR=GREY,COLOR=WHITE, $
ENDSTYLE
END

TABLE FILE GGSALES
SUM UNITS/D12C DOLLARS/D12CM
BY CATEGORY
BY PRODUCT
WHERE REGION EQ 'Northeast'
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K CLOSE
ON TABLE SET BYDISPLAY ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=REPORT, FONT=ARIAL,SIZE=9,$
TYPE=HEADING, SIZE=12,$
TYPE=TITLE, BACKCOLOR=GREY,COLOR=WHITE, $
ENDSTYLE
END


I managed to build a compound report with several sheets like this, which is one of the features the 2011's post said wasn't available:
TABLE FILE GGSALES
SUM UNITS/D12C DOLLARS/D12CM
BY REGION
BY CATEGORY
BY PRODUCT
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL07
ON TABLE SET COMPOUND BYTOC
ON TABLE SET BYDISPLAY ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=REPORT, FONT=ARIAL,SIZE=9,$
TYPE=HEADING, SIZE=12,$
TYPE=TITLE, BACKCOLOR=GREY,COLOR=WHITE, $
ENDSTYLE
END


But I can't use this approach because each worksheet must be created from different slightly different requests.

All help is appreciated, Thanks

Pedro

Hi Prarie, Refer to case 92022507 that I raised some time ago on this subject. The bottom line is that you will have to upgrade to 7.7.05.
