Report Writer 4.0A: Report-Report Interface

Description

If a receiver report is called from a Report Writer report, the sender report transfers the characteristic values to the receiver report as well as

If the receiver report is a Report Writer report, the transferred values for value variables are processed as follows:

If the sender report transfers a single value for the accompanying characteristic, the value variables in the receiver report for this characteristic are supplied with the individual value separately from the transferred variable values.

If the sender report transfers more than one value for the accompanying characteristic, the following situations are different:

1. The sender report transfers an additional variable value for the value variable:
The variable value of the sender is taken over.
2. The sender report transfers no variable values for the value variable:
The value for the receiver variables is determined from the transferred selection variant for the accompanying characteristic by the following rule:
a) The value variable is only used as a single value in the receiver report:
The execution of the receiver report is kept on the selection screen so that the variable value can be entered manually.
b) The value variable is used in the receiver report as a from-value (does not preclude the additional use of value variables as single values):
The minimum value of the transferred selection variant is taken.
c) The value variable is used as a to-value in the receiver report (does not preclude the additional use of value variables as single values, such as 'Current period' for one column and 'Cumulative to current period' for another column):
The maximum value of the transferred selection variant is taken.
d) The use of value variables is not unique in the receiver report:
The execution of the receiver report is kept on the selection screen so that the variable value can be entered manually.
