first thank you for sharing this information. I actually have a similar task, but I don't manage to do it. I'm using this technique with updateable reports often, but with an interactive report I don't get it to work.
In the report definition there is
apex_item.hidden( 1, id) test,...
with id as the primary key. In the on-submit-process the collection is empty ( APEX_APPLICATION.G_F01.count= 0)
Do you have any idea?
Thanks for sharing
I am having exactly the same problem.
I have an interactive report with the following SQL.
I've set the 'Select' column's type to 'Standard Report Column'. But the checkbox does not appear on the report.
