Can some one tell me difference between After parameter form Trigger and Before parameter trigger.
Why do we need both these trigger , why can't we use any one of them because after parameter trigger will obviously fire before report trigger and similarly before report trigger will fire after parameter form.
i will make it clear..!
Actually, we have four type of triggers in reports..!
Before Parameter -- fires before params are suppied to the calling report..
After Parameter -- fires after params are suppied to the calling report..
Before Report -- fires before report is generated..
After Report. -- fires after report is generated..
Before Report and After Report triggers are used for formatting the report design..
like u can specify a report to be displayed based on a condition in the Before
Report trigger and u can specify some backend updations in the after report trigger
which fires after report is generated..
