Hello All!
I'd like to ask a question: I have a composite report which contains 4
little reports. I would like to create a prompt for user to enter which
part of report he/she wants to retrieve: A,B,C or D.
How is it possible to accomplish the above?
TIA for your help.
Best regards,
Eva

On each report you add a line in the SQL:

report 1: where 1 = :report_no
report 2: where 2 = :report_no
etc.,

Now the user passes the report number. Only the desired report will
retrieve. But the composite report will still print the empty reports, so
it really only works properly if you don't have headers and footers on those
reports.
