Concatening different reports in only one PDF

2005-07-28 08:51

I need to create a simple report that contains internally more than one report. It is a kind of concatenation, where in only one simple click, the user will have 3 or more reports together in a same PDF file.

 

Is it possible?

 

I would appreciate a help.

Have a look at the subreport example in the demo folder of Jasper Reports.

Thanks John,

 

I studied a little more about subreports and I discovered that is possible to put lots of subreports in a same report.

I didn't know that I could do it.

 

It solves all more problems :-)

Good you hear it solves your requirements.

What I like about subreports is that you can design and test each subreport independent from the master report.

Your subreport will depend on a parameter passed on from the master report. You can give this parameter an initial value and test the report that way.

Once tested it is just a matter of addinf the subreport to the master report. It's similar to a hyperlink on a web page.

Be aware that the reference to subreport.jasper is an absolute reference in the file system. You can handle this by using a report path parameter before the subreport name in the master report.
