Newbie - Report Design Question

0
Hi All,

I have just started using the Jasper Reports tool...and am designing the layout for some of the reports....

I got a report which has got data coming in from multiple data-sources, to generate a single report...I need to display all the data into a single report...This report would contain charts, tables as it is a single summary report...Are sub-reports the right way to go forward in this ? Is there any other way to do this ? Any suggestions would be helpful

Thanks...Vijay

If you have multiple datasources (even if they are different), as far as I know you have to do subreports. That would be nice if you can have multiple datasources and then just have a bunch of fields.

Hi!
Any possibility to "join" the data sources before running the report?
Using SQL UNION, a view, a more complex SQL query, or similar mechanisms in whatever kind of ds you are using?
Otherwise, yes, subreports should be your solution.

Yours,
Sebastian
