Hi All,

Is it possible to print two hold files one after the other for summary and detail format in Excel format. able to get like Output holdfiles one hold file followed by next hold file.

Below are the hold files
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM RCOST
DCOST
BY COUNTRY
HEADING
"Summary at Country Level"
FOOTING
""
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K OPEN NOBREAK
END
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM RCOST
DCOST
BY COUNTRY
BY CAR
HEADING
"Summary at Country and Car Level"
FOOTING
""
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K NOBREAK
END
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM RCOST
DCOST
BY COUNTRY
BY CAR
BY MODEL
HEADING
"Detail at Model Level"
FOOTING
""
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K CLOSE
END

The output needs to be like

COUNTRY RETAIL_COST DEALER_COST
ENGLAND 45,319 37,853

COUNTRY CAR RETAIL_COST DEALER_COST
ENGLAND JAGUAR 22,369 18,621
JENSEN 17,850 14,940
TRIUMPH 5,100 4,292

COUNTRY CAR MODEL RETAIL_COST DEALER_COST
ENGLAND JAGUAR V12XKE AUTO 8,878 7,427
XJ12L AUTO 13,491 11,194
JENSEN INTERCEPTOR III 17,850 14,940
TRIUMPH TR7 5,100 4,292

COUNTRY RETAIL_COST DEALER_COST
FRANCE 5,610 4,631

COUNTRY CAR RETAIL_COST DEALER_COST
FRANCE PEUGEOT 5,610 4,631

COUNTRY CAR MODEL RETAIL_COST DEALER_COST
FRANCE PEUGEOT 504 4 DOOR 5,610 4,631

....
In the excel the output displays like summary row for one record followed by details and second summary row followed by details having page break by country.

Any suggestions.. Please update

There may be a better answer but when I've needed to do this kind of thing I've wrapped it up in a loop or two allowing me to repeat the extract or output code a number of times while feeding in a parameter from a generated hold file. So along the lines of:
TABLE FILE CAR
BY COUNTRY
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE HOLD AS CLIST
END
-RUN
-SET &CCNT = &LINES ;

-REPEAT :ENDREPEAT2 FOR &I FROM 1 TO &CCNT
-READFILE CLIST
-RUN

.
.
.
your extract code +
Where COUNTRY EQ ‘&COUNTRY’ ;
.
.
.

-:ENDREPEAT2
-RUN


7.7.05 Windows.

Basically, what you are requesting is subtotals on each BY field where the subtotal is above the detailed line
Does something such as this may suits your need ?
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM RETAIL_COST
    DEALER_COST
BY COUNTRY
ON COUNTRY RECOMPUTE AS 'Country Total'
BY CAR
ON CAR     RECOMPUTE AS 'Car Total'
BY MODEL
ON MODEL   RECOMPUTE AS 'Model Total'
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XLSX
-* To create a "page-break" (new tab) in Excel
ON TABLE SET COMPOUND BYTOC
-* To have the subtotal placed above the detailed data
ON TABLE SET SUBTOTALS ABOVE
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
-* To make all BY fields displayed on each line
ON TABLE SET BYDISPLAY ON
-* To avoid the display of the Grand-Total
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE SET LINES 999999
ON TABLE SET HTMLEMBEDIMG ON
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
     INCLUDE = IBFS:/EDA/EDASERVE/_EDAHOME/ETC/endeflt.sty,
$
ENDSTYLE
END
-RUN

What do you mean by the above ?
Can you illustrate with a sample output ?
