There are 2 threads with the same question.

I would need to know why a straight FML report would not solve this requirement.

I agree with Efrem, FML is probably the best way to go.

Waz and Efem,
Thanks a ton for the great help.. Let me ask you one quick question..
As per FML we need to have atleast one FOR field to get a matrix format..
My concern here is what if that FOR field is coming from DEFINE field..then how would I create a matrix format... Am I going in the right direction.. no much exp... about financial reports...

Regards,
MSAM

A DEFINE field is like and other REAL field, so you should have no trouble using it in a FOR statement.

Perhaps you could try coding a report that is close to what you're looking for, using one of the demo files, CAR, GGORDER, EMPLOYEE, CENTORD, etc. Post this code and we may be able to tweak it to produce the desired result. Also, take a look at program kpifin.fex in App Folder ibinccen - it might provide clues.

A FOR field can apply to a DEFINE.

eg.

DEFINE FILE CAR
COUNTRY2/A20 = COUNTRY;
END

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
DEALER_COST
RETAIL_COST
FOR
COUNTRY2
'ENGLAND' AS 'ENGLAND' LABEL R1 OVER
'JAPAN' AS 'JAPAN' LABEL R2
END
