I am creating a free form report that will be part of a -HTMLFORM. I am curious if someone can explain why my recap calculations are fine in the TABLE SUBFOOTER but not the TABLE SUBHEADER. ALthouth the TABLE SUBFOOTER works fine, WebFOCUS 5.2.3, is putting extra spaces in the output where the NOPRINT field would be if visable. This is creating a scroll bar in my -HTMLFORM that I don't want. The sample fex is below that works usign the TABLE SUBFOOT but if you change it to SUBHEAD the the values are not valid. I have already figured out some work arounds but would like to understand the behavior.
TABLE FILE CAR PRINT CAR NOPRINT MODEL NOPRINT SALES NOPRINT
COMPUTE CNTRCAR1/I9 = IF CAR EQ 'JAGUAR' THEN 1 ELSE 0; NOPRINT
COMPUTE CNTRCAR2/I9 = IF CAR EQ 'BMW' THEN 1 ELSE 0; NOPRINT
COMPUTE CNTRCAR1A/D12.2 = IF CAR EQ 'JAGUAR' THEN SALES ELSE 0; NOPRINT
COMPUTE CNTRCAR2A/D12.2 = IF CAR EQ 'BMW' THEN SALES ELSE 0; NOPRINT ON TABLE RECAP CNTRCAR1T/I9 = CNTRCAR1; CNTRCAR2T/I9 = CNTRCAR2; CNTRCAR1AT/D14.2M = CNTRCAR1A; CNTRCAR2AT/D14.2M = CNTRCAR2A; ON TABLE SUBFOOT " " "FUEL<0+>OIL<0+>" "<0+>Transactions<0+>ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF ON TABLE NOTOTAL ON TABLE SET ONLINE-FMT PDF ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON -*left out style sheet END
Focus will always attempt to align the SUB-TOTAL value with its field. There is information on using 'IN n' to position the verb object which tells FOCUS where you want the printed (vs. NOPRINT) field to display in the report. This may be potential technique to help with this issue (note I didn't have the time to try it).
