ok.. do a right click on M_13 and click on plsql editor

and see if you get this type of code somewhere


function M_13FormatTrigger return boolean is
begin
 
  return (TRUE);
end;

check the same for R_2 also, one among these objects constitutes to your header

do you mean an sql query, or a report generated by an oracle report..?

if that is an sql, you can do it by using

set heading off;

incase of oracle reports, you have to edit the  Layout Model

Ok.. here you go..

Am giving you the steps of oracle reports 6i..

check out the attached document for the screenshots..

here is the summary of the steps

Considering a simple emp table report

1. Open the report in preview mode

2.click on the header and select the header frame only

3.do a right click and open up the property pallette of header section

4. Click on Format Trigger option in Advanced Layout Section
and change the boolean variable value to FALSE


Mine had code like this..

function M_G_EMPNO_HDRFormatTrigger return boolean is
begin
 
  return (TRUE);-- Change the TRUE to FALSE
end;

NiceMan331Author Commented:
i changed only m_13
function M_13FormatTrigger return boolean is
begin
  
  return (false);
end;

Open in new window


and here is the code of r_2  ( i didn't touch it )

function R_2FormatTrigger return boolean is
begin
  if nvl(:prn_flg,0) = 0 then  
     return (TRUE);
  elsif nvl(:prn_flg,0) = 1 then
      if nvl(:op_deb,0) = 0 and nvl(:op_cr,0) = 0 and nvl(:tr_deb,0) = 0 and nvl(:tr_cr,0) = 0 then
         return(false);
      else
         return(true);
      end if;
  end if;

  return (TRUE);
end;

Open in new window

NiceMan331Author Commented:

Wasim Akram ShaikCommented:
ok.. you got  what you want??

.. but thats the thing you have to do.. just have to edit the trigger,. so that the boolean value returns false.. in your header section..

in case your header has more than one entity, you have to do this to every entity..

if you still face any issues, pls post the screenshot for a better clarity..

Wasim Akram ShaikCommented:
yeah.. its fine.. i think you have designed the header in the body form in layout editor.. thats why i had asked you for a sample..!!

if you get it then its fine...!!
