I have a report for Invoicing. In my detailtable I have Items loading, delivery, etc... I need to know at every masterrecord for example the date in detailrecord loading, delivery, rail, etc... How can I do this ? Structure : Invoicetable (Invoicenr, invoicedate, jobnumber)
Ex. 80001, 15/08/98, 10001
Ordertable : Jobnumber, weight, container
10001, 8000,TEST01
Ord_itemtable : Jobnumber, item, date1, date2 (ex.
10001, LOADING, 15/08/98, 17/08/98
10001, DELIVERY, 19/08/98,19/08/98
10002, LOADING, 15/08/98, 16/08/98)
What I need is a report with details ex.
80001 (invoice), loadingdate (15/08/98 - 17/08/98), delivery (19/08/98-19/08/98), weight, container

Firstly, you shold know how to build master-detail querys, with those two queries, you can put a detail band and a sub-detail band on the report.

Then set the dataset of the detail band to the master query, and the dataset of sub-detail band to detail query. Also set the master property of the sub-detail band to the report you are designing.


then you get all done, any questions, please tell me.

hi Antoninosciarrino,

it can be done with one query also

the sqlstatement:

select * from table1, table2 whrere table1.orderno = YourInputOrderno and table1.orderno = table2.orderno

the fields for the head place in the pageheader-band
the fields for the posistions in your invoice place in the detail-band

hi Antoninosciarrino,

i see you've three tables.

the statement then could be

select * from invoicetable, jobtable, itemtable where invoicetable.invoicenr = YourInputInvoiceNr and  invoicetable.invoicenr =  jobtable.invoicenr and jobtable.jobnr = itemtable.jobnr

(-> this select all jobs per InvoiceNr)

append for only one job :

and jobtable.jobnr = YourInputJobNr

for sortorder append

order by tablename.fieldname, ...

Tip : use phisical tablenames in the sqlstatement not TTable-componentnames
* selects all fields from all tables to specify fields you you must name the fields instead of  * i.e select tablename.fieldname, ... from ...

placing the fields in your report see above
