Manipulate .qrp using qckrpt.apl and cReport class?

Post by StefanM » 13 Jul 2021, 07:44

Hi,

I'm looking for a way to manipulate many .qrp files by writing a SQLWindows programm and accessing report objets using qckrpt.apl and cReport class. I want to get report header object, get all lines of header, get all data fields in a line and alter formatting, change field contents to report variable.

But the cReport class just seems to support creating a report, not altering a report. There are functions to create and attach a group/block/lines/data fields but not to *get* already existing report objects.

Any advice out there?

Thanks,
Stefan

Found solution myself:

You have to use ReportBuilder.apl

Happy coding...

Hi Stefan,
you can do a lot with the reportbuilder API.
But as far as I know there are some limitations.
Some features can only be accessed manually in the editor.
