HTML Item with Source_type as "Data Item value" is not working

Posted on 2009-02-12

In Cognos 8.3, report studio:

I've a strange problem with a HTML Item (in a HTML report, of course), which property "Source type" is defined as "Data Item value".
The code that is supposed to be "displayed", and "executed" in the page is like "invisible".
No error, nothing.
It just seems that the page doesn't see the object.

When the code was written directly in the property "Text" of the HTML Item, everything was working fine.
And now, and don't understand what is happening ...

The worst thing is that, in an other page of an other report, I used a more "complex" technique with HTML Items in Singletons each linked to separated small queries, and everything is working correctly.

If anybody has some idea ... great thanks.

    I must apologize.

    Sorry, it was just a mistake on some parameters, but at this point very hard to see where the "bug" was coming from.
