Sorry but this does not answer my question. The essence is I'm building a NEW report. Both the OBE and User Guide just tell me how to convert/alter an existing report.
2. Can I build my (RTF) layout template directly based upon the XML Data Template?I thought the XDODTEXE engine would pick up the (Layout) Template through concurrent program definition CPD short name which in turn points to the Data Definition (and thus Data Template). So does your answer mean I can call straight from CPD to Data Definition? I tried registering my Data Template in the Template Tab but it will not take XML as a type.
btw you can create your layout (rtf) without xml (data) and without data template (xml with select statement)So that's not an option I understand. Weird cuz I'd expect this to be technically easier.
bouble click on filed:Yes but in that case I'd have an empty report. How would that help me?
