Migration from Oracle Reports

0
Hi,

I try to convert some reports written with Oracle Reports into JasperReports. In Oracle Reports there are "repeatable groups", are there any similar things in JasperReports? With these groups I can do the following, if the last three fields are in such a group:

datasource:

1 2 3 4 5
1 2 7 8 9
1 2 6 7 9
2 3 5 6 7

report output:

1 2 3 4 5
. . 7 8 9
. . 6 7 9
2 3 5 6 7

(dot means space characters)
Where can I find these in iReport?

Thanks
Andre

Andre,

It sounds like you want the option "Print repeated values" deselected for those fields. (It's selected by default.)

Regards,
Matt

Hi!

It is a group problem. I have to group some fields and display the fields only if a group change occurs. JasperReports defines groups in a vertical manner, but I can move the grouped fields into the "detail group" and set the "print on group change" option for every field. So I can emulate the Oracle behavior.

Thx.
Andre
