Letter Size and Legal in One Report Based On Condition

Letter Size and Legal in One Report Based On Condition

Letter Size and Legal in One Report Based On Condition

(OP)
I have a report which based on a condition should switch the page size from LETTER to LEGAL.

Can this be done in one PDF report?

I am using WebFOCUS 7.1.4 Dev Studio
Windows XP Environment.

Thank you :)

Thanks,

Is the condition known BEFORE the request is run, or is it set as a result of the output?

RE: Letter Size and Legal in One Report Based On Condition

(OP)
It is based on the value of a field be returned from the data. So, based on the value(s) some values will have letter size while others would have legal.

Thanks,

That makes it tough, as the determination of page size is done from the stylesheet, which is parsed BEFORE execution. Can you do it in two passes: extract the LEGAL output first, then the LETTER output? The output can be combined in a single PDF, using compound reports.

(OP)
The page size is a result of the output.
Does that make a difference?

Thanks,

Yes, it does, as the page-size is determined by the STYLESHEET setting in the report, BEFORE the report is executed.
