Field as Column Title

Field as Column Title

Field as Column Title

(OP)
Hi,
I want to place a database field as the column title. (this is bcoz the title is dynamic). How can I do that in WF 521?
Thanks in advance
-WFRAJ

RE: Field as Column Title

It sounds like you may want to make that field an ACROSS field.

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
DEALER_COST
BY
COUNTRY AS ' '
ACROSS
BODYTYPE AS ' '
END

Does this help?

RE: Field as Column Title

(OP)
Hi Michael,
I should have mentioned it, my report doesn't use any sorting. Thats the requirement.
Here, the report displays the values of a field say 'xyz', but, the column title for that column should be a different database field.
Thanks Michael

RE: Field as Column Title

It is possible to use heading as title.

TABLE FILE CAR
HEADING
"<COUNTRY<CAR"
  PRINT MODEL AS ' '
        SEATS AS ' '
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=HEADING,HEADALIGN=BODY,$
ENDSTYLE
END

this works fine in my report.

RE: Field as Column Title

If the column is for field XYZ, and you want the column title to say something else, you can always change the column title using an 'AS' phrase.

If you have no sorting, and you want the column title to be a field value, then WHICH value would you like (assuming there's more than one)?
