Terminate a Report

Terminate a Report

Terminate a Report

Does anyone here no of a way to terminate a report.  Say for example I checked for a value in a field and if it was outside the a defined range, is it possible to cause the report to terminate?  or throw an error message of somekind ?


RE: Terminate a Report

I've never tried to do this, but I can imagine a way to make this work.  It relies on the related tables dialog and the action to take on failure.  The choices presented are blank, skip and terminate.

I imagine that you could setup an approximate join to the field containing your value with the threshhold value.  As long as the field was under the threshhold, things would work.  Once the limit had been crossed, the report would terminate.
