Active Reports - Show "Reprint" on a reprinted document

Active Reports - Show "Reprint" on a reprinted document

Hi Guys,

If my users reprint certain documents, I want to show the word "REPRINTED" on the doucument.

I've gotten so far as to add repeat as a parameter before I invoke the report form, for a repeat print(     paramList.Add(New ReportParameter("DocumentType", ("REPEAT"), False))

 but have no idea how to use this within my report. I'm not even sure this is the right way to go?

Many Thanks
