Problem with Integer object in report

2003-02-04 13:18

I am getting data from a database. Some of the fields that are coming from the database are Integers. When I try using those in the report, I always get the value 0. I have verified that the value in the db isn't 0 but is in fact a number != 0. The only way I can get this to work is by adding the following to my sql statement:

concat( '', someIntegerField )

This seems to force the returned value to be a string that gives the desired results in the report. This works for now, but there has to be a better way to make this work.

What database and what JDBC driver are we

talking about?


Try to make a small Java program that executes

a query and retrieves the same values from the

ResultSet. It might be not related to JasperReports.


Thank you,

Thanx for the reply. I'm getting the data from a mysql database. I tried making a simple report with just the one text field that I wasn't getting right in the big report. After hours of thinking, I realized that the query involved 2 tables. Thoses two tables each contain a field with the same name. To slove the problem:

select *, someTable.someField as anotherNameForField from someTable, someTable2

and Voila!
