Hi,

I have a query and say if I run it,say I may get columns 1,2 and 3 and out of which column 3 gives the number of units sold in $.
Now say I will get 3 rows for Column 3 with the values such as $3.00(row 1), $-4.99(row2 ) and $-5.00 (row 3).I need to change the font to green only if there is negative currency(say in the above case,it is row 2 and row3) and to black font if it is a positive currency(row 1).

Can anyone please let me know how to do this in a styling part/section using sample car file.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Regards,

GUI does it for you.

Right click on field you want to apply color, Options, Style, Edit Conditions, New, Apply color to font.

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
     COMPUTE N_RET/D10 = RETAIL_COST - 10000;
BY  CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
$
     DEFMACRO=COND0001,
     MACTYPE=RULE,
     WHEN=N2 LT 0,
$
TYPE=DATA,
     COLUMN=N2,
     COLOR='GREEN',
     MACRO=COND0001,
$
ENDSTYLE
END

It is also in the documentation.

Take a look at MACRO's and the WHEN statement.

I mostly skip the MACRO part for clarity and prefer to use the column names. This way when columns are being added or removed, the conditional styling keeps working and there is no need for renumbering:

 TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
     COMPUTE N_RET/D10 = RETAIL_COST - 10000;
BY  CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
$
TYPE=DATA,
     COLUMN=N_RET,
     COLOR='GREEN',
     WHEN=N_RET LT 0,
$
ENDSTYLE
END

You are right SWES, using the MACRO with the column name is normally what I am doing, but I did the code with the GUI just to be sure that everything remain as the GUI does and show that it's possible.

The advantage of the MACRO is that it can be reused for many columns' styling without having to define the condition on every columns.

It also make the code more clear when using the field name instead of the reference. Using the reference may sometime be confusing especially with COMPUTEs and MULTI LEVEL. Many treads speak about a column with style change when it's not supposed to be that one because a internal MATRIX field (not displayed) as to be considered in the column reference count.

This is very simple; I "always" set a FLAG and never use DEFMACRO, my 2 cents:
  
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
     COMPUTE N_RET/P10.2BC = RETAIL_COST - 10000;
     COMPUTE FLAG/A1 = IF N_RET LT 0 THEN 'Y' ELSE 'N'; NOPRINT
BY  CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
$
TYPE=DATA,
     COLUMN=N_RET,
     COLOR='GREEN',
     WHEN=FLAG EQ 'Y',
$
ENDSTYLE
END
-EXIT
