on the last reports that we have created the selection key there is only one that  is  based on the
 date that a certain document was received not cosidering  any field.

now we have to consider other 2 fields such as "The report name" field  and the "Category Type" field

For example i want to select

Report Name  : Nature of Documents Report
Category Type: General Document
Date              : fromDate to ToDate

how can i make a report using this 3 search key?


thanks for your help..

Watch Question

next time you should not point my name as other experts will feel bad.

what is report name? is it a field or a view name?
what is category? is it based on a field where u will select the category and we need to display the report?

Pls be in detail what is Report name and what is Category Type?

If I am not wrong, it can be done.
Now I understood ur requirement.
u have view called general Documents\By nature of Documents.
In that view, if the category is XXXX, then in that category, based on from date and to date, need to generate report.

Am I correct?

if the above is correct, then it can be done with small workaround.

the same code which I have given will be reused for this also.

And I will stay another 45 minutes and if you can respond quickly I can provide answer , else wait for tomorrow.

Thanks
Mady, I will not feel bad at all if i get some points too ;-)
U have qwaletee Question which is opened till now. And I am not going to share points in this question.
Even amd will be giving more points if I solve this question.

what u will say AMD?

Anyway, Ranjeet how are you. Here I am busy with lots of projects and I am alone now also.
Well, I'm ok too. Doing a bit of study. Trying to get some hands on Domino Workflow. Does IBM provide developers' evaluation download?

Good to be busy. How do you handle more than one projects alone? Ask your company to rectruit more people. I may just try my luck too ;-)

i still need your answer..
create a new field on the form called category_k and make it a dialog list field.
And the formula for that is:
res:=@DbColumn("":"";"";"GNofDoc";1);
@If(@IsError(res);"";res)

And for a new search button the code is:
Sub Click(Source1 As Button)

hello mady,

good day..

the code that you provide encountered a little problem..
i think array does not work well..

the data that im on get from the view is only the last document..

example:

Nature of document:              Date:
Document1                           03/25/2004
Document2                           03/25/2004
Document3                           03/25/2004


i only got document 3 on the reports
doc1 and doc2 are not included..

thanks
