All,
I have a report where i am showing only the data fields and not showing the title and total.
I am using a define column to show what the table contains.Following is the model of my report (Total for all customers)
  
Total for all  Column1 Column2 Column3 Colum4
customers

When the table doesnt have any data then all columns becoming zero including Total for all customers, because i create this column in define. Is there any way to show this particular column info in the report even there is no data.
Is there any concept of labels in the report. I know labels are in DM.
Any existing forum disucssion links or any suggesion is appreciated?

Regards

Not quite sure what you're looking for with labels. You mention DM labels, but they are something totally different from DBMS labels (such as in DB2.)
To get the report to display all columns (including defined columns) you could do SET EMPTYREPORT=ON (or ON TABLE SET EMPTYREPORT ON within the TABLE request). Is this waht you're talking about?


Regards,

Darin
