Screen management

Entry screen


The entry screen displayed is used to enter the code of the report to execute, and to enter its launching setups.




The following fields are present on this tab :

Block number 1

This code identifies the created records in a unique manner.

  • field DES

Destined notably to figure in the reports and the screens in which the record code can be entered or selected. This text is used to give a clear description to the record concerned.

Table Parameter definition

  • Prompt type (field TYPBO)


  • Parameter title (field PARDES)

It specifies the name of the parameter to be entered.

  • Value (field VALEUR1)

This grid makes it possible to assign the parameters necessary to print the report. These parameters can have the following characteristics :

*  they can be of the start/end type (two values to enter) or of a unique type (a single value)

*  they can be according to the cases, chosen from a selection window, or entered as a local menu (choose from a list : in this case, the start of the title can be entered, for instance Y for Yes)

*one of the parameters (predefined in the report) normally entered in the form of a range can be further broken down into several ranges. This is useful when a report must be printed, and that a large number of pages exist given the volume that will be generated (in general, this is a question that needs to be asked for reports that exceed 10,000 pages since Crystal Reports does not manage this volume of pagination well). In this case, it is better to define intermediate ranges to "sub-divide" the report. It is the case for instance for the General Ledger (GLGRP) report that can be sub-divided by account. If the sub-division of a report has been defined in the parameter in question (a column exists for that purpose in the report dictionary), a right click gives access, via the Sub-division choice, to an intermediate range entry window. The result of the print request will therefore be a chain of several reports ranging from the start of the first intermediate range, the first intermediate range of the second, etc..... up to the end of range of the last.

  • Multiple values (field VALEURS)




Batch task

This function can be executed in batch mode. The standard task ABIIMP can execute it.

Specific Buttons

It launches the report execution, in a window that has opened.

It is used to save the setups entered by associating a code.

It is used to recover the setups previously saved by entering the memo code to recover.

It is used to delete a memo previously saved by entering its code.

Error messages

The only error messages are the generic ones.
