Multiple reports on one html page with BYTOC
Hi,

I'm displaying three reports on one HTML page for a course. I would like to provide an index (BYTOC) of all courses to allow the user to view any course which would display three reports within one HTML. Where would I need to place 'BYTOC'?

Thanks.

Does that means that the first report will produce an index?
Another real cute option I just found in the documentation is the Multiple Reports Client Variables. It creates a nicer output with an index than TOC does. See page 7-9 of DN4500724.0206 (Developing Reporting Applications With Graphical Tools Version 7 Release 1.3). I don't know what versions it came in with.

-TYPE WEBFOCUS CGIVAR IBIWF_mprefix=Description Report 2

-TYPE WEBFOCUS CGIVAR IBIWF_mprefix=Description Report 3
EX Report3
-RUN 


There are other CGIVARs and ways of using it too. You can show multiple reports at once in a grid of frames, you can set the IBIWF variables on an HTML page that runs the Servlet, etc.
