I have a report that calls an option procedure. The report presents people records filtered based on the option. One of the options is to create mailing labels for the records presented. Most of the options are typical report stuff: A header, a form, a footer and various detail bands.
My issue is the label option. It uses the basic report structure of the others. Everything works ok but the labels don’t play nicely in the primary report structure. I would like to do something a little different, at least than I’ve done before.
I would like to have this be a different report structure, nothing but the label detail. These are 1" x 2 5/8" Avery 5260 - 30 per page labels. I don’t care to offer other label templates.
Can I, how can I, control that the report be mostly the classic way but have the labels be a separate report structure? I would like to do this within basic Clarion, not rely on some external product. I am using 6.3 Enterprise 9058.
I suppose I could have the option be the primary entry point and then call separate report procedures depending on the option selected but I’m curious to be able to trigger a different report structure from within a report structure.
Thank you for any suggestions or guidance. Happy Holidays to everyone!
