All,
I am having a fex file which has 3 reports.I tried executing them using report caster.I used PCHOLD for format type with a variable and passed the value for that from Report caster. It works fine if i give EXL2K, but if i give HTML then only first report displays. I am using NOBREAK OPEN.....NOBREAK.....CLOSE after PCHOLD to make all the 3 reports in single excel page.Is it causing issue for HTML output?I am using dev studio 7.1 and report caster 7.1.1.

Regards
R.Prasanna

The Compound Report concept doesn't work for HTML reports - the COMPOUND OPEN and CLOSE commands are ignored.

This Tech Support document discusses what to do:

You will have to login to Tech Support to see this.

Prasanna,

The whole point of having to log in to the Tech Support site is to ensure that Customers only have access to the facilities there. Giving you a copy of any document to which a valid Customer has access would not be right.

If you want these documents you will need to ensure that your company has an agreement with IB and then use the details to create a sign in to access the documents etc.

Think of it in the same manner as one of your friends buying a licensed copy of "Vista" and you saying that you would like them to make you a copy - is it right? No it's not.

All,
Got a solution for the issue without tech support document.I used the Dialogue manager variables to store the variables that was sent by report caster, then based on the value i set the new variables to hold the format-"EXL2K or HTML".Then calling the new variable in the table which has the format that to be hold for the table.Now its working fine.
