Findings with DetachContent() Method

Findings with DetachContent() Method

Findings with DetachContent() Method

Hi All,
I am creating a simple report which displays details of Orders.
There are three categories of orders

Bulk Scheduled
Regular Scheduled

The layout of the report is as below:
For every customer, three rows will be displayed, one for each category.
The customer name, is displayed at the same level of the details and not as Group Header or something..
Here is a sample:

Customer Name   Order Cat   Sold    Booked

ABC Cust             Bulk S           1       1
ABC Cust             Regular S      2       9
ABC Cust             AdHoc            4       11

How I want it to be displayed is:

Customer Name   Order Cat   Sold    Booked

ABC Cust             Bulk S           1       1
                         Regular S      2       9
                         AdHoc            4       11

I used DetachContent(CustmerNameControl), to detach the Customer Name control for 2 out of the three row.
Followig is my finding:
If I use DetachContent() in Start method of the frame on which this control resides, the report slows down like hell and the time taken by the report increses almost 2 time.
If I call the same method the same way in Finish method of the frame, the report works fast.

Has anybody came across with similar issue?

Thanks in advance!

RE: Findings with DetachContent() Method

How about:
- Define a global. Say flag AS integer.
- 1st report sets flag to 99 or something known.
- 1st report allows cust name to appear in control.
- All other reports test flag in OnRow() of the control.
  IF flag = 99 THEN
     DataValue = ""  ' Space out cust name  

RE: Findings with DetachContent() Method

Hey Milton,
Yes..even that can be done...
But the intention behind asking the question about DetachContent is not to find an alternative but to know if you guys have came across any situation like this before.

Appreciate ur comments!
