Sort Report in the Order of Multi_Valued Parameters by IdoMillet
Posted: 26 Nov 03

Assume your report accepts into a multi-value parameter called {?Customer_List} several customer numbers.  
The report should show the customers in the order they were entered into the parameter.

Sort the report on the following formula, which computes for each Customer Code its position in the parameter value list:
------------------------------------------------------
NumberVar i ;
NumberVar N ;

FOR i := 1 TO UBound({?Customer_List}) DO
(
IF {Customer.Customer ID} = {?Customer_List}[i] THEN  
    (
    N := i;
    Exit For ;
    )
);

N;

------------------------------------------------------
Cheers,
- Ido
