Multiple Company Headings

Suni

Active Member
We are currently going through a restructuring where several companies that
used to report through us to our common owner will now report separately.
However, we will still do much of the processing for them.

Our problem: Most (if not all) reports and other printed materials default
to company 0 (zero) for the report heading. Currently, wr have company 0
set to our own company name. This is no longer possible--we need to have
reports that reflect the individual companies' names and have no reference
to our own.

JDE's solution is to blank out the description for company 0 and then
individually input the desired company into the header for every
dreamwriter, worldwriter, FASTR, etc. etc. etc.

Does anyone have a better idea, or some tricks they could pass on? Thanks
very muuch!

This can be easily changed with a few new lines in the code. Change the sort by
putting the company first with a level break. Then create a new heading variable
and global variable.

On the before level break load the company into the global variable and in the
heading section use the global variable to chain to F0010 and get the assocated
descriptions.

here is a small sample..


Page Header Section

Create two variables
Create a report variable APFG called ‘rpt_HeaderFlag’? APFG
Create a report variable DL40 called ‘rpt_CostCenter’ -? DL30
In the Do section initialize the DL30 report variable to the internal variable

In the main section enter the following sections in the Event Rules
Initialize Section
RV A/P status = “1”

Before Level Break Section
IF RV A/P status = “1” and BC Company (Fxxx) is not equall to >Null>
Single Fetch F0010 with the BC company and return the description into DL40
IF SV File IO = CO_SUCCESS
RV A/P Status = ‘2’
ENDIF
ENDIF


I picked this information up from the list last year and changed it a little to
make it more efficient

Thanks
Rob

Look at the version of JDE she Suni has in her signature.

Its World. Not One World. Your code will not work in World.

Basicly you had the right idea. But in World you would have to add that type of code to each program where you would want to print different heading values.

Thanks everyone for your responses! Sounds like this is something JDE needs
to look at. :)

Specail thanks Al, for your suggestion to look into customizing the X00RSC
program to to peruse the DW data selection and/or proc opts to glean any
company-related information that could be used to pass back to the DW a
company name. I shall look into this; it has potential for being at the
very least a partial solution. Thanks!!!
